What type of Glass is it?

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass produced with two or more float glass joined together with an interlayer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) or Sentryglas ®.

failam_grafico_en

Failam (PVB): it is a security solution. When the glass is broken, the fragments remain adhered to the interlayer, minimizing the risk of damage for a time.

Failam (SentryGlas): thanks to the SG film which is 100 times more rigid and 5 times more resistant to tearing than PVB, laminated glasses are obtained with high resistance and protection that is maintained even with broken glass.

What is it used for?

It is used in areas where people can accidentally be involved in a glass breakage. The interlayer holds the shattered pieces of glass to lower the risk of cuts. Is could also be used to delay penetration of burglars.
