Nip Roller process
In this post, we discuss what emerging designs require and how automotive glass processors can meet these requirements.
The bridging behavior between fragments is one vital factor in the post-fracture stage of glass laminates.

Influence of Elevated Temperature on the Mechanical Properties of Transparent Adhesive Glass-Glass Joints
The paper is focused on experimental testing of glass-to-glass connection using transparent adhesives.
This latest Glastory blog by Kalle Kaijanen is dealing with the processing of high-strength / structural laminates.
Architectural glass is a durable product that can be maintained in satisfactory condition by regular cleaning using accepted good glass cleaning practices.
Assembly and preparation of the laminated glass sandwich
A new BIM tool processing IEQ data input for building management and energetic optimizations
Within this research, two sets of real-scale laminated banister panels with the embedded connection were tested.
Examination of the Load-Bearing Behavior of a Bonded Edge Seal for Fluid-Filled Insulating Glass Units
This paper presents a study on the development of a bonded edge seal for fluid-filled insulating glass units.
Experience has only value when shared.
An Interlayer Material Study Towards Circular, Dry-Assembly, Interlocking Cast Glass Block Structures
Determination of the linear viscoelastic material behaviour of interlayers with semi-crystalline structures
Determination of the linear viscoelastic material behaviour of interlayers with semi-crystalline structures shown by the example of a semi-crystalline ionomer
The results of the classification of hail resistance classes for different materials for greenhouse enclosures are presented in this paper.
In this research, the structural sealed façade structure with triple IGU was investigated and the effect of the thickness of ordinary and laminated glasses.
This study aims to develop a non-contact stage-wise scanning method to extract 3D damage characteristics on glass surface, which can further facilitate the investigation into the associated influences on the flexural strength of glass.
Color Depth is a material-based research project investigating the optical and structural properties of thick glass.
When we look at glass lamination, there are 3 basic systems: Nip roller system, Vacuum bag system and Autoclave free system.
This paper reviews the high-temperature behavior of a selected range of silicones used for sealing and bonding in construction.
In the structural design of facade glazing, various types of loads such as dead weight, wind and climatic loads must be taken into account. In practice, however, there are many cases of damage that can be attributed to direct solar radiation.
In the next session(s), Luc would like to take you through the 3 glass lamination processes in detail, going from glass and PVB requirements to design concepts.
The strength of glass plays an important role in the dimensioning of glass components in the building industry. A major factor determining float glass strength is damage such as scratches or cracks due to the brittle material behavior of glass.
The main challenge in the design of the duplex façade was the high aesthetical performance that the façade had to meet.
