Laminated Glass

If you are experienced in glazing, you may have heard of laminated glass. This type of glass assures safety in that it doesn't split in the course of shattering. There is a layer between the panes of glass that holds the whole unit together. Usually, this layer is made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). Its function is to prevent the disintegration of the glass when it breaks. It is so tough that even when the glass is broken, there are no large and sharp pieces scattered over the place. For laminated glass, what is obvious in breakage is a type of crack that looks like a spider web - this happens when the glass doesn't yield completely to the impact.

Applications of laminated glass include areas where people could bump into it or areas broken glass may likely fall. As far as laminated glass is concerned, safety is a number one property. It has gained its BS 6206 mark. This glass can serve as a security fixture. Where more than two laminated glass adheres, the end product is glass that can withstand the impact of a bullet or projected missiles.
