Precision EVA Laminated Glass
The latest safety glass innovation is EVA laminated Glass.
E.V.A: Ethylene-vinyl acetate
A revolutionary thermoplastic copolymer resin that is both non-sticky and inert to water moisture! The future is now.
EVA Glass Inter-layer vs. PVB Inter-layer
Moag Glass manufactures EVA Laminated Glass because it is the superior product for architectural glass applications, surpassing visual standards while withstanding the stresses of temperature, moisture, radiation, and mechanical stress.
Laminated Glass Transparency
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 a PVB haze value of .13%
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; 91% compared to PVB’s 89% light transmittance.
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.
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:
- HYDROPHOBIC / WATERPROOF
- HIGHLY ADHERED
- UV RESISTANT
Another term for laminated glass is “acoustic glass”. EVA laminate provides higher sound-proofing that standard PVB. The light benefits of glass are obvious, but laminated glass also provides noise reduction and sound privacy. Acoustic glass endless residential and commercial office applications.
Safety under stress.
When exposed to moisture and then broken, EVA laminated glass remains intact.
TCV breakage test photos, shown above, display how when broken, EVA Laminated glass stays cohesive in contrast to PVB glass.
Laminated Glass Color Options
EVALAM Colored Glass Laminate
Evalam Color was developed with two objectives in mind:
- Color Uniformity
Mix Evalam Outdoor Colors with layers of Evalam transparent colors to vary translucency and opacity.
DECOLAYER Colored Film Lamination
Benefits of color film laminated within EVA inter-layer include:
- Maximum clarity, durability, and stability over time
- UV-ray protection
- Moisture resistance suitable for exterior, open-edge applications
- Acoustic isolation
- Superior impact-resistance
Color Film – Roll Specifications
Other advantages to EVA interlayer include its compatibility. Utilize decorative inserts like P.E.T, electronic inserts like PDLC, Polycarbonate, or photovoltaic applications for unique and innovative glass design.
