Triplex — this is one of the kinds of safe glass representing glass of two or more layers, sticked together by means of special laminar film (film triplex) or laminar liquid (filled triplex). That’s why triplex also can be called laminar or multilayer glass. The layers of triplex can be made of glass of one or various kinds, can be flat of bent – depending on required form, which is given to glass before sticking.
To manufacture triplex the film shall be put between glass plates then plates shall be sticked under pressing under temperature exceeding by 40-50°С the temperature of film flowability. After cooling the product is ready for further processing or installation.
Lamination of glass does not increase its mechanical strength, but when destructing, fragments of broken glass remained sticked to the film – it prevents the appearance of sharp fragments and their fall. Thus, triplex is a protective and safe glass.
One more indisputable advantage of multilayer glass is its ability to prevent the penetration of ultraviolet rays into the premises. It prevents the elements of interior from quick bleaching.
Triplex shall be used in such constructions as:
• staircase steps;
• motor transport;
• table tops;
• shop windows;
