Saflex® Advanced PVB — Acoustic Interlayer
With the use of Bluetooth technology, voice-activated commands, onboard navigation systems and better audio equipment, consumers want quieter cabins.
Thanks to innovations like Saflex Q series interlayers, quieter cabins are possible not just in luxury cars, but at all automotive price points.
Saflex® Advanced PVB — Solar Interlayer
Saflex S series interlayers are designed to absorb infrared (IR) light irradiation from the sun in the wavelengths responsible for generating excessive heat in vehicle interiors.
Saflex S series effectively blocks more than 99 percent of UV radiation up to 380 nm and reduces solar heat transmission through a vehicle’s glazing.
As an extra benefit to occupants, Saflex S series has received the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, marking the first and only time an automotive-grade PVB has been recognized.

For sleek new windscreens, styled side and back windows, and panoramic sunroofs, laminated glass continues to be a compelling way for automotive OEMs to differentiate their brands.
Saflex color interlayers offer a palette of possibilities with various color options to match popular tint colors for automotive glazing.
