Laminated Glass

JEB Fusion™ Laminated Glass Products

JE Berkowitz Laminated Glass is produced by sandwiching one or more layers of PVB or structural layer materials between multiple lites (two or more) of glass and applying a combination of heat and pressure to permanently “fuse” the layers together creating Fusion™ Laminated Glass, and SentryGlas®, all using Kuraray™ technology.

Fusion

Laminated PVB

Laminated safety glass made with Butacite® polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer, Trosifol® Sound Control.

Certifications

Laminated glass made with .030 in. (.76mm) PVB (or thicker) will meet the requirements for CPSC 16 CFR 1201 Category I and II, ANSI Z97.1 Class A and B, and CAN/CGBS12.1 M Category I and II.
Butacite® PVB and SentryGlas® interlayers have received the universally recognized Miami Dade County’s Product Control Notice of Acceptance (NOA).

All Fusion™ products, SentryGlas® Expressions™ and SentryGlas® meet the quality requirements specified in ASTM C 1172. Annealed and heat-treated float glass used in laminates meet ASTM C1036 and ASTM C1048.

Butacite® G is made out of 100% recycled materials and contributes to the LEED Certification of your project.

Laminated Impact Glass

Laminated safety glass made with Butacite® using Kuraray technology polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer designed to meet small missile requirements. It is a tough, resilient thermoplastic material that can offer protection even after the glass is broken, because glass fragments adhere to the interlayer.

Laminated Sound Control Glass

The Trosifol® SC Monolayer is an acoustic PVB film that combines the sound insulating features of multiple glazing applications with traditional PVB film. Laminated safety glass produced with Trosifol® SC Monolayer offers an improvement of 5 dB in the sound insulation value as compared to float glass of the same thickness. Trosifol® SC Monolayer complies with the requirements of the Construction Product List for laminated safety glass and the “Technical Rules for Linearly Mounted Glazing” of the German Institute of Construction Engineering.

Laminated Recycled Interlayer Glass

Butacite® G is also available including in a vibrant palette of hues ranging from subtle highlights to vibrant tones. Other colors including soft or translucent white help control light transmission and privacy.  Butacite® G is made out of 100% recycled materials and contributes to the LEED Certification of you project.

Please consult JEB for Butacite® G colors.
