Laminated glass​

Whereas the laminated glass

Laminated glass consists of the union of two or more layers of glass, interspersed with layers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), which, through a process of heat and pressure, since a glass a with one another, making them behave as a single unit.

Resulting in a resistant material of excellent quality, which we have called him:


Our Vilax glass process, begins in a clean room with controlled environment, where after having gone each of the glasses through a washing machine to remove any dirt or stains, proceed to make the Assembly of the glass with PVB.

After this, the glass and PVB go through a heating furnace where will arrive at an approximate temperature of 70o C, eliminating the air between the glass and PVB being bonded with each other, finally passed to the Autoclave where they are subjected to controlled conditions of temperature and pressure, to achieve a total adhesion of glass and PVB.

Protection and security

Extreme protection

When there is an explosion, the main cause of damage is the detachment of fragments of glass at high speeds. Laminated glass allows fragments are stuck, avoiding the release of dangerous sharp shards of glass.

This kind of glass is used in areas of high seismic risk and hurricanes, allowing characteristics significantly decrease accidents and damages caused by the glass by these events.

Security in case of theft

Laminated glass is an effective barrier to deter and prevent theft, because if it manages to break the glass, it will be virtually impossible to make a gap of dimensions such that allows entry into the interior space and the theft of valuables.

If you want protection against attacks with firearms (bulletproof glass or shielded) it will be necessary to use multilaminados glass formed at least three glasses of two layers of polyvinyl and also prevent the detachment of fragments of glass towards the side of the attacked person.
