SentryGlas® - Laminated Glazing
Kuraray's SentryGlas® interlayer is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials. With this kind of strength the glass can be a more active structural element in the building envelope, opening up design possibilities that didn't exist before.
SentryGlas® interlayer retains its clarity even after years of service. Unlike other interlayers, it is much less vulnerable to moisture exposure or yellowing over time.
Laminates with SentryGlas® provide significant opportunities for designers in the following areas:
- Reduction of glass thickness
- Installation of larger glass panels at determined loads
- Or, a reduction in the number of fixing points for frameless glazing
- Significant increase in post-glass breakage performance
This enables both a reduction in costs and a reduction in the overall weight of the glazing.
