With architecture and automotive, the company has two times the innovation to share.

Eastman, a leading manufacturer of Saflex® PVB interlayers for architectural and automotive applications for laminated glass, is coming back to glasstec, the largest international glass fair running Sept. 20–23 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“The Eastman team is excited to be back at glasstec with the opportunity to share the progress we’re making in our innovation-driven growth strategies for automotive and architectural laminated glass,” says Travis Smith, president of the films division. “Our focus continues to be development of higher performing, more sustainable products for our laminators, architects, designers and glass industry professionals.”

Eastman’s exhibit booth, located in hall 11 at stand A42 in the Messe Düsseldorf, will be a double-sized booth with interactive displays and information highlighting new and enhanced products. There will be representatives to discuss the latest innovations with Saflex PVB interlayers for both architectural and automotive applications, showcase the winners of the 2022 Vanceva® World of Color Awards™ (WOCA), and discuss how Eastman is committed to contributing to sustainable laminated glass.

Taking glazing to another level with our frameless glass structure

“With so much potential, why not remove the steel framing?” And, just like that, frameless glass became a possibility. See the innovative project that Knippers Helbig GmbH, Thiele Glas and Eastman collaborated on, a frameless glass structure of 38 laminated safety glass panes made with Saflex Structural and Vanceva Arctic Snow held together by 244 stainless steel fittings.

Finding inventive methods for solar control

Thinking outside the box has a new meaning with “cube Berlin,” a cleverly sculpted structure featuring a double- skin facade with reflective solar coatings on the outer skin and a Saflex solar-absorbing PVB interlayer to control solar heat gain in the cavity. See how the architectural team created this innovative — and stunning — solution.

An invisible shield for low-iron glass — that’s Saflex Crystal Clear PVB interlayers

For stunning neutrality, colorless edges, excellent light transmission, and impact-resistant high security, nothing compares to the genuine aesthetic of Saflex Crystal Clear. From priceless displays and museum glazing to railings and building facades, Saflex Crystal Clear showcases the beauty of whatever it is protecting.
