Laminated glass is made up of two or more individual glass panes, which are joined together with a very stretchy and elastic interlayer. The interlayer is made of polyvinyl-butiral (PVB) foil, which can be colourless, transparent, have UV protection and sound insulation properties.
The basic feature of laminated glass is that, due to the foil, when it is broken it does not scatter into small pieces: from the point of impact a radial crack is created.
In case of breakage, the pieces of glass remain bonded to the foil. Laminated glass has ten grades. The higher the grade, the greater the glass resistance to piercing and smashing. Laminated glass is used for safety and anti-burglary windows, glass doors, glazing of verandas, in place of bars, shutters and blinds.
