Laminated glass as we know it today was originally produced with PVB, developed and patented exactly 80 years ago. It’s original application was to increase the safety of automotive windscreens by combining the properties of glass with the properties of a thermoplastic polymer, modified with a plasticizer; however, as the architectural laminated glass market was maturing, the original PVB recipe proved to have its limitations for architectural applications. This led to the modification of the PVB recipe for applications such as enhanced acoustics, and the development of other polymers such as ionomers and EVA. In this presentation, = more detail on the applications of laminated safety glass were covered.
