Flintermann manufactures laminated safety glass (LSG) in various designs. Depending on its structure, laminated safety glass can be
Laminated safety glass is a special form of laminated glass that meets various minimum legal requirements.
VSG is available in different combinations with float glass, toughened safety glass, partially toughened glass (TVG) and chemically tempered glass, depending on the requirements, combining the advantages of the different types of glass. When safety must be considered in the application, VSG is the first choice. Bulletproof glass, windshields or dome elements are just three of many possible applications.
The advantage of VSG lies particularly in its breakage behavior. In the event of a mechanical overload, the glass breaks, but the fragments adhere to the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) film. This property reduces the risk of injury while maintaining a residual load-bearing capacity.
The production of laminated safety glass involves several steps. The panes and film(s) are placed on top of each other. They are then fused together under pressure and high temperature to form an inseparable unit. The incorporated foils are usually transparent after joining, but can positively influence the properties of the glass. In addition, optical effects can be achieved with matte white, colored or printed foils.
