PVB interlayer for laminated glass is used in many applications where safety and security are required in buildings, such as the glass façade, curtain walls and partition glass walls. PVB Interlayer is attracting attention as technology that can enhance the possibilities of glass. Our PVB interlayer for laminated glass, S-LEC™ film, is widely adopted all over the world and can bring benefits such as:
・High transparency – For clarity of the glazing.
・Safety – Shatterproof, absorbs impact and prevents accidents.
・Security – Resist impact from a hammer or glass cutters.
・UV Blocking – Blocks out 99% of ultraviolet rays.
・Design – Gradient or Colour with different film thicknesses.
・Solar Control – Heat reduction in cars or buildings.
・Sound Acoustic – Quietness by blocking noise from the outside.
S-LEC™ Film expands the possibilities of types of glasses in construction by offering sound insulation, heat insulation, and design performance, while still providing the three key performances: safety, security and UV blocking.
Trends in contemporary architecture have led to the pursuit of more elaborate and larger glass surfaces to make spaces brighter and more attractive visually. Architects and building experts worldwide increase the light in buildings by implementing different types of glasses in construction such as glass facades, spandrel glazing and glass curtain wall systems in the exterior.
For the interior, glass is a popular option for partition walls, doors and staircases to make spaces look more open and larger. These trends have led to a need for more functional glass addressing safety, security and comfort.
S-LEC™ PVB Interlayer Film for laminated glass offers a wide range of benefits in glass such as safety, security, sound insulation, heat insulation and design in buildings, while maintaining transparency.
In the summer, when daylight hours are long, buildings with large glass areas allow the sunlight to enter the room through the glass, raising room temperatures.
By blocking infrared rays generating heat, S-LEC™ Solar Control Film allows for bright, cool and comfortable spaces. As well as providing heat relief, which in summer can achieve additional savings on electricity by reducing the use of the air conditioning.
Design is an all-important component of glass to highlight certain areas or certain elements, such as the façade glazing or glass curtain wall systems of a building.
S-LEC™ film, PVB interlayer film for architecture laminated glass, is available in a wide range of colours for glazing architecture to support architects and designers to experiment with new designs and explore creativity.
With the diversification of living patterns and increasing interest in privacy protection, there is a great deal of attention to sound insulation in buildings.
S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film can dramatically improve the sound insulation performance of glass. Its high sound insulation and vibration damping properties prevent external noise from entering the room, such as noise from airplane, cars driving by or rain hitting against the windows, providing a quiet and comfortable space.
UV-A can penetrate deep into the skin even when you are indoors, causing adverse health effects and damage to objects. Too much exposure to these UV-rays can cause skin damage and increase the risks of inflammation and premature aging.
Interior furnishings, along with products and artwork, are subject to bleaching effects of the sun and discoloration due to exposure to UV rays and lose their value over time.
Laminated glass using S-LEC™ Premium UV Blocking Film UA01 blocks over 99.9% of UV rays in the UV-A range to protect people’s skin and the value of important objects.
