| That’s an excellent question! It really is true that SentryGlass is more difficult to laminate in many aspects than standard PVB. But if we first think of what SentryGlass has been designed for, it is to give structural strength to the laminate.
| Two plus two does not equal one!
| Traditional uses of glass have been reinvented by two architectural firms, who artfully use glass and interlayers to achieve very different design goals.
| Noise as one of the major pollutants in our environment and society
| We have seen rapid expansion in the last decade of laminated glass design using modern analytical and computational methods.
| Time-temperature superposition principle is widely used to generate interlayer modulus properties in the form of mastercurves for use in glass design.
Comparative Study of Cantilevered Laminated Glass Balustrades using Full-scale Testing, FEM, and ASTM E1300 Formulas
| Historically, monolithic tempered glass has been primarily used in North America, but with the recent changes to the International Building Code (IBC 2015), laminates with heat strengthened or tempered glass are now required.
Stiff PVB and Annealed Laminated Glass for Freestanding Balustrades with Respect to National Standards in Europe
| This paper presents an evaluation of the use of annealed laminated glass incorporating the stiffer PVB interlayers.
| Decorative glass is limitless in design, colors, patterns, textures, and offers aesthetic brilliance in countless interior applications.
| Increasing demands on security in an uncertain world have to be considered additionally by the building industry. Nowadays, largesized glazing in the building envelope cannot disregard safety requirements.
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| The paper describes the research and development of phosphorescent glass.
| Laminated glass panels installed in structurally glazed applications may not always have the full laminate glass thickness supported along its bottom edge.
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Dr. W.M. Stevels from Eastman Chemical Company.
| Due to the tension stiffening of the polymeric interlayer resulting from the adhesion with the glass shards, laminated glass maintains significant stiffness and strength even when all glass plies are broken.
| In a flat glass laminating oven, glass-film sandwiches are located on rotating rollers and conveyed through a heating chamber in a continuous flow.
| As a manufacturer and supplier of monolithic, laminated and insulated glass panels, we often produce larger panels that must use heat-treated components, ionoplast interlayers and multi-layer assemblies.
| Laminated glass deteriorates with time when subject to different environmental conditions. In this work, the impact of different environmental conditions on post-fracture performance is investigated by means of through-crack tensile tests on small…
| Architectural preferences for commercial building continue towards increased transparency resulting in large lites of glass with minimal visual obstruction.
| Strong, resilient, with perfect thermal and sound insulation properties, insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction.
