Trosifol® HR

Autoclave-free processing is pushing the creative limits of laminated glass beyond the confinement of thestandard nip roller process. From bent glass designs to the encapsulation of, for instance, metal, organicmaterials etc.: the imagination is the limit for making extraordinary creations in glass. Certainly it can be used in the traditional autoclave process, but its unique properties are well suited for vacuum de-airing,allowing for the maximum removal of air - be it with a rubber or plastic bag or vacuum ring.

Trosifol® Structural & Security

The use of laminated glass in structural and security glazing applications has become preferred as a safer choice to monolithic tempered or heat strengthened glass. This is due to the glass retention characteristic of laminated glass resulting in greatly improved post glass breakage properties providing enhanced safety.
SentryGlasŪ image

SentryGlasŪ

The SentryGlas interlayer from the Trosifol Structural product familiy is five times stronger and up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials. With this kind of strength the glass can be a more active structural element in the building envelope, opening up design possibilities that didn't exist before. Besides its strength, SentryGlas ionoplast interlayer retains its clarity - even after years of service. Unlike other interlayers, SentryGlas ionoplast interlayer is much less vulnerable to moisture exposure or yellowing over time.

SentryGlas® N-UV image

SentryGlas® N-UV

SentryGlas® N-UV is a Trosifol® Structural interlayer for safety glass that combines the strength, safety and edge stability of SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayer with increased transmittance of natural ultraviolet (UV) light. Unlike most safety glass interlayer technologies, SentryGlas® requires no UV protection for lasting strength and clarity. SentryGlas® can be manufactured in a special, high UV-transmittance sheet.

Trosifol® Extra Stiff image

Trosifol® Extra Stiff

Strength, toughness and elasticity were the goals in the development of new Trosifol® Extra Stiff (ES) PVB film. Used in structural glazing, it consequently has product properties that exceed those of standard Trosifol® films. This and the greatly improved post glass breakage properties make it an excellent choice for special applications such as glass floors and stairs, curtain walls and parapet glazing. Despite its superior structural strength, Trosifol® ES is as easy to process as standard Trosifol® films.
Trosifol® Clear image

Trosifol® Clear

Trosifol® polyvinyl butyral (PVB) thermoplastic films are tough, resilient safety interlayers used in laminated architectural safety glass. These PVB interlayers offer similar safety advantages by retaining dangerous shards in case of glass breakage. They are commonly used safety glass interlayers available worldwide.
Trosifol® XT UltraClear image

Trosifol® XT UltraClear

The "XT" in its name refers to the "eXTreme" conditions the film has to withstand. What makes Trosifol® XT UltraClear special is that it is a single 2.28 mm thick PVB film with remarkably positive effects in terms of enhanced efficiency and quality in the production of special laminated safety glazing.

Trosifol® Acoustic

Trosifol® Sound Control are PVB films with outstanding sound protection properties. Compared to a glass assembly containing standard PVB film, the same assembly containing Trosifol Sound Control achieves improvements in sound insulation of up to 3 db. The production process for laminated safety glass containing Trosifol® Sound Control is just as efficient and simple as for standard architectural glazing products. Laminated safety glass produced with Trosifol® Sound Control has outstanding product properties in terms of safety, long-term stability, light-fastness and appearance. And: Trosifol® is the world's only PVB film manufacturer to have both sound protection films - monolayer and trilayer - in its portfolio and is thus able to offer the perfect solution for any glass application

TrosifolŪ Specialized Application

Some architectural projects require glass with high UV-transmittance. For example, when designing controlled environments for animals (zoos), or plants (botanical gardens and greenhouses), extra care must be taken to provide unfiltered, broad spectrum light, as close as possible to the animal's or plant's natural habitat. Again, Trosifol offers different options to meet our customer's needs. Trosifol PVB films are also recommended for autoclave-free processing - particularly suitable for this is Trosifol HR.
Trosifol® UV Extra Protect image

Trosifol® UV Extra Protect

Invisible to the human eye, ultraviolet (UV) light is as vital as it is hazardous. While a certain degree of exposure is beneficial, too much of this part of the spectrum of natural sunlight is harmful. Excessive exposure to UV light in the 315 to 400 nm range is particularly damaging to the human skin - and no less so to plastics, pigments and paints.

Conventional window glass is impermeable to UV light below 320 nm. PVB films between glass plies filter out further UV light. TROSIFOL® UV Extra Protect is a PVB film that blocks out incidental UV light in its entirety.

For several years now, Trosifol has been aware of growing demand for UV-permeable glass solutions. In these special applications, both UV transmittance and safety are important. Thanks to the application of expertise from the Trosifol photovoltaic product range, Trosifol Natural UV is now available with maximum UV transmittance for the architectural sector. While satisfying the requirements of the building authorities, it admits the full natural spectrum of solar radiation. This is important for applications in the botanical, zoological, life science and health sectors.
