Solutions: Glass Lamination

Clarity, quality, smarts and strength for optical interlayer

Offering glass lamination film and sheet with unmatched optical clarity, lay flat and overall quality Argotec is the leading manufacturer of extruded thermoplastic polyurethane optical interlayer films around the world.

Manufactured to satisfy the highest quality and safety standards required of the aerospace industry, thermoplastic polyurethane TPU-bonded aircraft canopies and windows are laminated with Argotec optical interlayer films. TPU optical interlayer films are used for laminating glass-to-glass and glass-to-polycarbonate applications. The films are also used in numerous commercial and military bullet-, blast-, impact-, and hurricane resistant glass composites and are used as an adhesive layer between glass and the electronic components found in touchscreen monitors.

Argotec's ethylene vinyl acetate EVA is a copolymer-based optical interlayer film used to laminate switchable glass composites. These dynamic, smart composites function as dimmable or decorative glass. They provide switchable on-off privacy in highly visible architectural glass lamination applications, including, conference rooms, offices, bedrooms, bathrooms and any other glass-walled or glass-windowed location where visual isolation is a desired design element. 

Known for its extrusion expertise and quality Argotec produces the cleanest, most optically clear films on the market and is the industry leader in thermoplastic polyurethane interlayer film technology. To ensure consistent quality the extrusion lines are located inside a clean room with digital camera inspection and gauge control on all its interlayer film production lines.

Designed for ease of use the interlayer films are available in widths to match the lamination process. The films are engineered to work correctly in the laminator's equipment, whether autoclaves, nip rolls, or bladder presses. They lay up well, are not tacky, and laminate with minimal voids. 

Benefits

  • Optical clarity – production monitored by state-of-the-art digitized camera inspection and extruded in clean room 
  • Ease-of-use – lay-flat to bond consistently without voids or gaps during lamination and installation
  • Quality – overall consistency, satisfies aerospace industry standards
