This included the main functions and applications for three types of interlayer: standard PVB; structural interlayers i.e. ionoplast interlayers and stiff PVB; and EVA.
The presentation also outlined other performance-enhancing structural interlayers, including acoustic interlayers; security enhancing interlayers (i.e. blast, intrusion, ballistic, anti-spalling); natural disaster (hurricane-resistant) glazing; high and low UV transmission glazing; high durability glazing; low iron glass; coated glass; coloured and decorative glazing; and intelligent glass (i.e. with photochromic layers for varying the levels of shading).
Björn Sanden concluded his paper by discussing the relevant national and international building codes relating to laminated glass and structural interlayers, as well as outlining the calculation methods for determining the strength and thickness of laminated glass for specific load requirements.
