What is EVASAFE™?

EVASAFE™ is an EVA-based (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) thermo-set interlayer film with a "3D Cross-Linking" capability and contains no plasticizers. It is developed, patented and trade mark registered by Bridgestone as an interlayer film for Laminated Glass / Polymers as well as for Plasma Displays and Photo-Voltaic modules.

EVASAFE™ is increasingly applied as an EVA based inter-layer film for the Laminated Glass Industry due to its excellent "cure-torque" strength, high security characteristics, excellent durability, superior optical properties, ideal small kiln processing / handling, easy room temperature storage, low moisture ingression, and superb compatibility with polymers and other insert media.

EVASAFE™ is the "premium" inter-layer product. In the Laminated Glass Industry it is experiencing strong demand growth in the areas of exterior/interior architectural and designer glass, e.g. paneling, furniture, façade, tempered and special application / smart glass. This is due to its "unique" performance and quality characteristics.
