Structural & Security
The use of laminated glass in structural and security glazing applications has become preferred as a safer choice to monolithic tempered or heat strengthened glass.

This is due to the glass retention characteristic of laminated glass resulting in greatly improved post glass breakage properties providing enhanced safety.

Sound Control products are PVB films with outstanding sound protection properties. Compared to a glass assembly containing standard PVB film, the same assembly containing Sound Control achieves improvements in sound insulation of up to 3 db.

The production process for laminated safety glass containing Sound Control is just as efficient and simple as for standard architectural glazing products. Laminated safety glass produced with Sound Control has outstanding product properties in terms of safety, long-term stability, light-fastness and appearance. And: Kuraray's Advanced Interlayer Solutions Division is the world’s only PVB film manufacturer to have both sound protection films – monolayer and trilayer – in its portfolio and is thus able to offer the perfect solution for any glass application.

Specialized Application
Some architectural projects require glass with high UV-transmittance.

For example, when designing controlled environments for animals (zoos), or plants (botanical gardens and greenhouses), extra care must be taken to provide unfiltered, broad spectrum light, as close as possible to the animal’s or plant’s natural habitat. Again, Kuraray offers different options to meet our customer’s needs. Kuraray's Advanced Interlayer Solutions are also recommended for autoclave-free processing - particularly suitable for this is Trosifol® HR.

Kuraray is a leading worldwide supplier of Trosifol ®  polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and SentryGlas ®  ionoplast safety interlayers for use in laminated glass, and the only manufacturer offering high-quality PVB and ionoplast interlayers in a choice of either virgin or 100% post-industrial recycled materials: Butacite ®  G.
