The National Glass Association (NGA) is proud to announce the publication of its newly-updated Laminated Glazing Reference Manual. The manual replaces the original 2009 edition.

The Laminated Glazing Reference Manual presents useful technical and performance data, as well as installation guidelines for laminated glass products. The 2019 edition includes the latest information on laminating interlayers as well as in-depth discussions on the variety of applications in which laminated architectural glass may be used such as safety, solar, sound, security and more.

“The Laminated Glass Reference Manual is the most up-to-date compilation of industry consensus documentation on laminated glass use, performance and specification,” says task group chair Julia Schimmelpenningh, Eastman Chemical Company. “An evergreen document, users can expect current information on standards and their applicability, performance data that has been backed up by supporting peer reviewed documentation and introductions to new uses for laminated glass.”

Updates on laminated glass strength, cutting, handling and installation are highlighted. This edition also features a comprehensive listing of standards applicable to laminated glass.

According to Urmilla Sowell, NGA advocacy and technical director, “safety and durability performance considerations are primary considerations in compiling this information and presenting it in an industry consensus, technically-advanced manner.”

NGA thanks the task group members who made this updated manual possible:
