Most people might think that all laminated glass is created equal but you would be wrong. Depending on how the glass is being utilized in a project there are going to be endless options to consider. From an artist’s standpoint, you might be looking to protect artwork between the glasses, whether it is fabric, paper, colored films, photographic prints, metal meshes or anything else artists can envision. Since there is unlimited uses for laminated glass, JIT is always there to provide suggestions and guidance to provide the best outcomes for a project. Safety of fabricated glass is always a concern when exposed to the public and we make sure that all products conform to established safety standards.
- EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate)
- PVB (polyvinyl butyral)
- Liquid Resins
- All three types of material exhibit transparency levels, UV, and acoustical blocking qualities.
The bonding materials that are using in the laminating process are also not created equal. We utilize a variety of bonding materials such as EVA, PVB and liquid resins for bonding glass together. Depending on the application, we will suggest the best one to use for the application. For instance, if a glass panel was to have its edges exposed to the outside elements, EVA would be the go-to material. It does not absorb moisture like PVB and thus would prevent edge delamination. All three types of material exhibit transparency levels, UV and acoustical blocking qualities. JIT can provide technical and performance data for these materials upon request if need be.
