Description

Saflex® Solar is a solar absorbing polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer , offering improved solar control by reducing solar heat gain versus clear and conventional laminated glass without coatings. These interlayers are bonded through a lamination process to two of more pieces of glazing to produce laminates with impact and glass containment properties. Whether protecting people and property, Saflex® PVB interlayers add post breakage safety and security to laminated glazing applications.


Saflex® Solar PVB interlayers are high-visible light transmittance, infrared (IR) radiation-absorbing interlayers designed to enhance solar heat gain performance in laminated glass compared to monolithic clear glass and laminates made with conventional polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. Saflex® PVB interlayers have been awarded the Gold level Material Health Certificate from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. Cradle to Cradle Certified™ is the global, science-based standard for products that are safe, circular, and responsibly made.


Features and benefits:

  • The product eliminates UV and NIR energy while allowing as much visible light transmittance as possible.
  • Saflex Solar is specifically formulated to provide exceptional durability when exposed to natural weathering.
  • Two options are available within the Solar range: Saflex Solar SG has been tested with higher-performances while Saflex Solar SH has a more color-neutral appearance and may be laminated with annealed glass in some applications.
  • Compatible with other Saflex interlayers.
