SGCC Certified Custom Safety Glass.

For Building Code compliance, “Safety Glazing” requires either tempered or laminated safety glass tested to ANSI Z97.1-2015 or CPSC 16 CRF 1201.

2015 the International Building Code (IBC) was updated to reflect new safety standards. One of the principal changes requires fully tempered or heat-strengthened laminated glass. This IBC 2015 standard is where all architects, glaziers, and fabricators are headed. Because glass walls and railing systems are life-saving products, tempered-laminated safety glass is the best choice, offering unmatched performance for safety and security.

Moag is certified to produce Tempered and Laminated glass products by The Safety Glass Certification Council (SGCC). SGCC provides an internationally recognized manufacturing standard consistent with those established in ANSI Z97.1, CPSC 16 CFR 1201, and CAN/CGSB 12.1. Both the customer and market benefit from the rigorous testing needed to achieve SGCC certification. The SGCC establishes that MOAG Laminated Glass production adheres to strict manufacturing requirements, including Quality Assurance Guidelines, Overall thickness, Approved Interlayer Material List, Labeling requirements, Weekly, In-house break testing, third-party, impact, and boil testing, bi-annual plant audits, and 10-yr record keeping.

Moag Glass offers precision glass fabrication with two types of laminate interlayers to best meet your architectural needs, SentryGlas and EVA.

Laminated Glass Interlayer Options:

Laminated glass comprises two or more glass-lites permanently bonded with one or more polymer interlayers using heat and pressure. While float glass provides an excellent base product, laminating the glass adds benefits, such as safety and security, sound control, UV protection, and color. Moag offers options to meet architectural requirements of noise reduction, hurricane impact resistance, blast mitigation, forced entry, and protection from broken glass – or a combination of these. Glass and interlayers are available in various types, colors, and thicknesses to meet the relevant building code standards and customer requirements.

SentryGlas (SGP)

SentryGlas is the leader in strength of Laminated Glass products.

Originally developed by Dupont for the hurricane glazing market, this interlayer is used where high-performance glass is required.

SentryGlas is made using ionoplast polymer technology chemically different from EVA and PVB interlayers. Up to five times stronger and 100 times stiffer than other interlayers, the post-glass breakage performance makes SG the ideal glass product for high-risk, high-profile architectural applications.


Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA)

E.V.A, Ethylene-vinyl acetate, with its hydrophobic nature and edge stability, is the latest safety glass innovation.

EVA Interlayer was designed to encapsulate.

With less glass haze and more light transmission than Sentryglas, EVA is a comparable choice in most applications. A revolutionary thermoplastic copolymer resin that is both non-sticky and inert to water moisture it offers edge stability and the most design opportunities.

EVA Glass Inter-layer vs. PVB Inter-layer

An evolution of clear glass lamination from PVB to EVA. Developed in 1927, PVB is still found in architectural drawings. Learn more below about how laminated glass is assessed and why EVA interlayer is now considered a better design choice.

In a head-to-head laminated glass comparison, EVA is the superior product.

EVA surpasses visual standards while withstanding the stresses of temperature, moisture, radiation, and mechanical stress.

Laminated Glass Transparency “Haze”

Better transparency, glass clarity, or “optics” is mainly defined as less haze. Haze is the amount of light that goes through the glass, but that is transmitted in a fuzzy way. Glass laminated with EVA has better optics with a haze value of .05% when compared to a PVB haze value of .13%

Light Transmittance

Light transmittance is the % of visible light that goes through glass and a second way to measure its transparency. EVA Clear Inter-layer has higher light transmittance at 91%, compared to PVB’s 89% light transmittance.

UV Protection

EVA offers high UV protection, blocking 99% of UV rays with proper thickness application.


With 3x’s higher adhesion than PVB, EVA is the ideal product for glass that will undergo mechanical stress and fatigue, such as doors, stairs, or exterior facades.

Cross-linking Technology

One of the most significant differences between thermoset EVA and other thermoplastics and PVB is the cross-linking technology. During the curing phase of lamination, EVA cross-links. This is a non-reversible process through which the EVA laminated glass becomes:


Acoustic Insulation

Another term for laminated glass is “acoustic glass.” EVA laminate provides higher soundproofing than standard PVB laminate. In residential and commercial applications, it’s worth considering glass to provide a transparent noise reduction and sound privacy solution.

When exposed to moisture and then broken, EVA laminated glass remains intact.

As shown above, TCV breakage test photos display how EVA Laminated glass stays cohesive when broken in contrast to PVB glass.

Glass Design in Color

EVA Laminate is the best choice for art-glass applications.

With EVA lamination, added interlayer options include transparent color films, fabrics, and metallic inserts. Turn non-traditional materials like fabric or mesh into a pane of safety glass. Permanently transform materials by encapsulating them between glass sheets, then use this EVA laminated composite glass in any application where a traditional, safety-glass product would apply.

Product Compatibility

Other advantages of EVA interlayer include its compatibility. Utilize decorative inserts like P.E.T. and electronic inserts like PDLC, Polycarbonate, or photovoltaic applications for unique and innovative glass design.

Ceramic Frit Coating

Look no further than ceramic frit printing for opaque, permanently printed photorealism.

This specific ink printing technique is compatible with any laminated glass. The digital ceramic-ink application is a permanent glass fabrication used in interior and exterior glass applications. Working from high-resolution files, this application provides long-lasting, vivid colors. Colors are fused into the glass for outstanding durability, even in extreme conditions.

With maximum clarity, durability, and stability over time, ceramic inks offer unmatched resistance to scratching, acid, UV, and weather, ensuring long-lasting vivid colors. During the tempering process, the inks are fused directly into the glass so that the printed image lasts as long as the glass. In all other digital printing, the ink is printed on top of the tempered glass and does not fuse into the glass. Ceramic inks are compliant with the demanding industry standards for quality and durability.
