Huntsman Polyurethanes Brings Clarity To Glass Lamination With KRYSTALFLEX®

Glass laminators across Europe are set to benefit from improved quality of service and product development thanks to Huntsman Polyurethanes.

Huntsman Polyurethanes has brought the commercial sales process and technical support for its high performance range of KRYSTALFLEX® optical aliphatic films in-house, significantly improving service and support it can provide to glass laminators across Europe.The market for hybrid glass / polycarbonate lamination is growing rapidly as it is increasingly used in a diverse number of applications where intrinsic strength combined with transparency is critical; including glazing for security vehicles, prisons, hospitals, embassies, computer centres and sensitive research centres.

Bonding together different materials such as glass, polycarbonate and other plastics, can prove a significant design challenge for manufacturers of glass laminates. However, the excellent adhesive properties provided by the KRYSTALFLEX® range of themoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films overcome this issue and also provide highly effective load transfer between the different sheets.

Johan Van Tongelen, commercial director Europe, Africa, Middle East & Indian Sub-continent, said: “Huntsman has focused on the needs of glass laminators for more than 20 years and it is through using this knowledge and understanding of applications and processes that we are able to engineer tangible performance benefits into aliphatic TPU film interlayer. By bringing the sales and technical support in-house, we hope to be able to steer new initiatives, be more responsive to our customer’s needs and further enhance the performance capabilities of Huntsman’s KRYSTALFLEX® film range.”
