Saflex® Earth Tones Collection Soothing Colors for Today’s Architectural Designs KINGSPORT – Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN), manufacturer of Saflex® PVB interlayers, announces a new color collection designed to give laminated glass — and thereby any architectural space — greater aesthetics, warmth, and serenity.

The Saflex Earth Tones Collection offers a range of 11 earthy hues reflecting the sky, water, and natural terrain in soothing shades of blue, grey, green, brown, and bronze. These colors are similar to industry standard glass tints when laminated in clear glass.

Using Saflex color interlayers, architects and designers are able to achieve varying light transmissions without having to vary glass thickness or sacrifice structural performance. Traditional methods of making colored glass can be costly, particularly when the volume of colored glass required for a project is relatively small. Also, not all colored glass may be appropriate for specific building codes and requirements.

Saflex PVB interlayers are an ideal solution and with the Earth Tones Collection, architects and designers have an innovative option to expand their creative boundaries and fulfill their vision without sacrificing structural integrity.

“Laminated glass is an accessible, affordable medium to add personality to any interior or exterior space,” says Mayra Gonzalez, Market Development Manager, Architectural Interlayers of Eastman Chemical Company. “This color collection replicates nature’s soothing tones, which translates into a calm, peaceful atmosphere.”

To resist fading, these Saflex PVB interlayers are made with heat- and light-stable colorants, making them ideal for interior and exterior applications, including balconies, curtain walls, atriums, skylights, partitions, and conference rooms.
