Toughened laminated glass is available to different specifications for various uses such as frameless balustrading, walk on and glass stairs.
Toughened Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer,ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. In the case of the EVA, the thermoset EVA, offers a complete bounding (cross-linking) with the Glass. We use toughened glass to make it 10 times stronger then usual, then using EVA we join the pieces together.
Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered and also for architectural applications. Skylight glazing and automobile windshields typically use laminated glass. In geographical areas requiring hurricane-resistant construction, laminated glass is often used in exterior storefronts, curtain walls and windows. (source Wikipedia)
