Laminated glass — 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 laminated glass) or laminar liquid (filled laminated glass). That’s why laminated glass also can be called laminar or multilayer glass. The layers of laminated glass 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 laminated glass 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, laminated glass 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.
Laminated glass shall be used in such constructions as:
• staircase steps;
• motor transport;
• table tops;
• shop windows;
