Interlayer

Interlayers are used to permanently bond two plies of glass in a laminated configuration. Laminated glass is a great choice for many applications to meet a variety of requirements.

Laminated Glass Applications
Acoustic – Laminated glass reduces noise transmission due to the sound damping characteristics of the interlayer.

Aesthetic – Laminated glass interlayers offer a selection of color and opacity not achievable with other glass products such as coatings, glass substrates, silk-screen or spandrel glass. This is especially true with bright, vivid colors as well as opaque or translucent / frosted aesthetic requirements.

Blast-Mitigating – FSGLASSTM provides a variety of laminated glass options that help mitigate the effects of air-blast attacks.

Important note:

Laminated glass is considered a component of the overall glazing system, therefore;

The blast mitigating performance is also dependent upon being installed into an adequately designed frame which is then anchored appropriately to the wall structure.

 

Safety - FSGLASS's architectural laminated glass products with a minimum .0.38mm PVB interlayer which are the industry safety standards for glazing materials.

 

Ultraviolet Protection – Laminated glass provides 99% UV light blockage at the wavelength range of ~300 - 380 nanometers.

 

Interlayer Options
FSGLASSTM offers a vast selection of interlayer options to meet your specific requirements.

Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) - standard architectural interlayer available in four thicknesses:

SentryGlas® - an ionoplast interlayer bonded directly between two layers of glass for superior protection. The rigid interlayer minimizes deflection. Available interlayer thicknesses:

0.78mm
1.56mm
2.34mm

FSGLASSTM Color – interlayer system made up of base colors and a range of white interlayers that can be combined to achieve varying layers of translucency and color.

 

Solar Performance
The solar performance of a glass unit results from the configuration of the unit along with the thickness of the glass used. Altering the thickness of an interlayer in a laminated glass unit, will have an insignificant effect on performance data.
