Reliance Safety Glass, Singapore

Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass has almost the same strength as ordinary annealed glass of the same thickness. Laminated glass is a safety glazing material made by bonding layers of glass, using heat and pressure, with one or more interlayers of tough polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The glass sheets may be of same or different thickness.

Why use Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer , typically of PVB, between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered. The PVB interlayer also gives the glass a much higher sound insulation rating, due to the damping effect, and also blocks transmitted UV light.
