Post Breakage Strength Testing for Overhead Laminated Glass.

Design and structural performance of laminated glass in over-head glazing applications like canopies, skylights is very critical as it has an impact on the safety of occupants of a building and its maintenance workers. For such applications post breakage strength of laminated glass construction is of utmost importance.

Salt spray testing harsh but necessary to reinforce peace of mind for interlayer capabilities.

As a result of the testing regimen, Trosifol is recommending its Trosifol® UltraClear High Adhesion PVB interlayer for laminated glass applications with exposed edges to the environment, due to its high edge stability. For structural applications, such as balustrades, point-fixed façades, canopies, etc., with exposed edges in a coastal environment and, critically, where post-breakage strength is also vital, SentryGlas® is the recommended interlayer for its high edge stability and stiffness.

SentryGlas Xtra® interlayers from the Trosifol®

SGX has robust adhesion to the air side of glass without the need for primer making lamination of multi ply laminates easier. SGX optical performance and haze formation are much less sensitive to the autoclave cooling rate giving peace of mind to the laminator that the final laminate will have consistently high quality. The lower haze also makes producing very thick laminates of outstanding optical quality easily achievable. SGX complies with global safety glazing codes such as ANSI Z97.1, EN14449, EN12543, EN12600, EN356 and Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC). Properly laminated and installed SGX laminates of 2.53 mm caliper have been tested and pass the large missile impact test per ASTM E 1996.
