SentryGlas® Secure For Safer Buildings

New DuPont™ SentryGlas® Secure™ is the tool architects need to design the next generation of laminated glass applications to meet today's stringent security standards.

Secure™ technology is based on the ability of DuPont™ SentryGlas® Plus ionoplast interlayer to bond well to a range of materials besides glass. This means that it can be engineered to bond to a metal window frame, thereby becoming an integral, hardworking element of an overall very secure and strong glazing system.

Weidlinger Associates Consulting Engineers of New York has worked for many of the world's governments to develop anti-terrorist architectural structures. The U.S. Department of State recently collaborated with Weidlinger and DuPont to develop a window system incorporating SentryGlas® Plus that resists the force of bomb blasts. The window system has been adopted for all U.S. embassies – both new facilities and those being retrofitted.

"SentryGlas® Plus has grown from being an extra strong product developed primarily to help glaziers meet tough anti-hurricane safety legislation in Florida to become a new generation interlayer solution that is fast changing the way architects and structural engineers worldwide perceive of laminated glass," says Jeff Granato, DuPont global architectural glass laminating products.
