is a type of secure glass, obtained by overlapping two or more glass sheets and interposing synthetic films such as polyvinyl butyral. Its advantage lies in the fact that, in case of breakage, the resulting glass fragments remain attached to the plastic film and thus avoid accidents.
It is especially used for windscreens and car mounts, but also for roofs, stained glass and walls. It also forms the basis of the explosion-proof and burglar-resistant glass-reinforced glass. In terms of protection against burglary and vandalism, in case of impact, the windows, stained glass and walls remain in place when a suitable laminated glass of a thickness and structure conforming to the applicable legislation is used.
Depending on the size of the glass panels, the utility, the impact strength and the weight to be sustained, the number and thickness of the glass sheets or the number of synthetic films are determined. The degree of safety increases in proportion to the number of synthetic foils used.
Laminated glass can also be secured (before the glass passes through the rolling process), thus further increasing the resistance of the finished glass.
You can lace the transparent glass, but also the color-stained glass or the painted glass; At the same time, different fabrics or prints can be inserted between glass sheets to meet architectural or design requirements.
Also, the lamination film may be of various colors or may be matte. Thus, laminated glass with matte foil may be an alternative to sandblasted glass, having the advantage that it does not stain like external sandblasting.
Laminated glass has superior acoustic properties to monolithic glass. Furthermore, there are partition systems which, using laminated glass with 1-2 special acoustic films, achieve a degree of sound insulation up to 47-50 dB.
