Eastman To Showcase Cutting Edge Glass Applications At Glasstec Fair On Oct. 23- 26 In Dusseldorf

Stocks in this article: EMN

Saflex DG Structural PVB Gives Designers New Choices for Glass Applications  

With new structural interlayers from Saflex, glass can now be effectively used in a variety of structural applications, including exposed edge laminates, floors, stairs, balconies, canopies, point glazing systems, clip systems, captured systems, curtain wall, sloped and overhead glazing. Saflex DG structural PVB is designed specifically for applications in which increased interlayer rigidity and high glass adhesion are required relative to standard glazing interlayers. With Saflex DG, laminates can sustain higher uniform loads with the same glass thickness, or the glass thickness can be reduced and still achieve the same loading.

Quiet, Please

Saflex Q series is an advanced acoustic interlayer used for architectural and automotive glazing applications. It allows laminators to produce glass laminates with enhanced acoustical properties compared to laminates made with standard polyvinyl butyral (PVB).Visitors will able to "hear the difference" that Saflex Q series makes in architectural glazing applications with an interactive exhibit.

Solutia World of Color Awards Winners Announced

Architects around the globe competed in the Solutia World of Color Awards™:  Inspired by Vanceva®.  The international competition pays tribute to architects and designers who have demonstrated innovative and liberal use of Solutia's Vanceva® color interlayers for laminated glass in their work. Enlarged photographs of the winning entries, which depict the bold use of color from all corners of the globe, will be displayed in the booth.
