Advocates for Safe Glass Forms Alliance with Solutia

Advocates for Safe Glass (AFSG), a non-profit organization founded by parents of children severly injured by wired glass products is pleased to annouce that CP Films; a division of Solutia Inc. and the world leader in performance films for glass and after market applications has become a key partner in the mission of ASFG to advocate the use of safety films and glazing in buildings to protect public safety through adequate building regulations, industry cooperation and public education.

ASFG Founder and Chairman Greg Abel says, "We are making great progress in our efforts to remove the safety exeptions for wired glass. The recent announcement by the Oregon Building Code Division to ban the use of wired glass in hazardous locations makes Oregon the first state in the nation to take steps towards protecting citizens from the potential injury caused by wired glass. The support now offered by a world class company such as Solutia further enhances our ability to get our cause into the forefront of American Safety Awareness and we truly appreciate that they are formally supporting us."

Solutia/CP Films representative Randy Garcia says, "Our company has played a valuable role in providing safety through our CP Films Llumar brand (www.llumar.com) of applied films used in retrofit applications. Solutia also provides glazing solutions through our Vanceva (www.vanceva.com) interlayer films used to make glass laminates that are used in buildings and automobiles to improve the safety and strenght of glass in new construction. We have watched the efforts of AFSG and see that their mission fits with our view of the need for improved safety glazings to better protect people and especially children. We are proud to be associated with AFSG."
