evguard® EVA glass lamination film
Due to their outstanding resistance to heat and aging, EVA films made from the copolymer ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) are used in interior and exterior architecture. The result of years of research and development, evguard® laminate film exhibits its superior properties when used to laminate glass.
As you process your glass with evguard®, the EVA film forms a highly crosslinked composite layer. Unlike conventional PVB films, evguard® already fulfills the standards of the pendulum impact test with a composite structure from 4.4.1 (two sheets of glass 4 mm thick and a layer of film 0.380 mm thick). For the processor, this means real savings in terms of material, since just one layer of evguard® is enough to achieve the same solid and reliable result.
Because the glass layers form a solid composite once they are laminated with evguard® EVA film, and the film nonetheless remains highly elastic, this type of laminated glass is ideally suited for use as protection from break-ins or falls.
Glass lamination with evguard® EVA film is also suited for production of sound insulation glass (sound reduction index of at least 36 dB), fire-protection glass (greater fire-resistance than PVB) and laminated safety glass.
It is also possible to meet specifications for certain countries by adapting the properties of the film prior to glass lamination, such as increasing UV protection in southern countries. Beautiful effects achieved by laminating glass with EVA film In interior architecture, evguard® is frequently combined with interlayer films to achieve striking effects. You can laminate your glass with the film you select to furnish your glass surfaces or design objects with colors, textures or a modern one-way-vision effect.
Since the EVA film can be used to laminate glass at low temperatures, it is also possible to include temperature-sensitive inserts such as plants in the laminate.
Innovative film manufacturer with a strong tradition Unique, customer-specific, sustainable — these have been the hallmarks of our approach at Folienwerk Wolfen for over 20 years. As a film manufacturer with a keen understanding of environmentally friendly and intelligent product development, we are among the pioneers in the field of high-quality extruded plastic films. The applications range from blister packaging and rigid film for the medical field to thermoforming film for food to card-lamination films for smartcards. EVA film for laminated safety glass and glass lamination in the decorative or security field is offered as well.
Specialist for print, lenticular, and packaging films One of our core areas of expertise is the development and production of print films that are used as packaging film for food, medical devices, and other products. This includes transparent packaging as well as thermoforming film and other rigid films. In the field of print films, we offer both high-quality multilayer solutions made of PET film as well as special lenticular films for 3-D, flip, morph, and moving-image prints.
