Our products

Product category: Laminated glass technology with adhesives, casting resin and laminate film, Bonding technology

ArgoBond® EVA Optical Interlayer Film

ArgoBond® EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) optical interlayer films are ideal for bonding decorative glass-to-glass constructions and switchable smart-glass installations. 

ArgoBond SE-381 thermoset EVA optical interlayer films work well in low temperature lamination applications with low melt viscosity.  Like TPU, they have very good optical clarity, no distortion and low haze.  SE-381 EVA interlayers are ideal for encapsulating decorative graphics between layers of glass to give a room or office a unique look.  Their low melt viscosity allows for bubble-free or void-free lamination of complex decorative media.  Because of their low melting point, SE-381 interlayers also
accomodate low processing temperature limitations when constructing switchable film laminates for smart-glass applications.

ArgoBond® TPU Optical Interlayer Film

ArgoBond® ST-6050 thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) optical interlayer films are engineered to create security-glass composites that bond dissimilar materials like glass and acrylic or polycarbonate for use in transportation & construction applications. 

These films create super-strong, optically clear, impact- and ballistic-resistant composites for transportation, aerospace, government/military and building security applications.  They have the thermal expansion/contraction properties needed to bond dissimilar materials and are engineered to work correctly in the laminator’s equipment, whether autoclaves, nip rolls or bladder presses.  ST-6050 films lay up well, are not tacky, and laminate with minimal voids for fast and efficient installation.

ArgoEdgeSealPLUS® Foil-Enhanced Edge Seal

ArgoEdgeSealPLUS® is a significantly improved foil-enhanced version of SWM’s highly successful BOC-9450 Edge Seal™, first created in 1995, and the model upon which most other commercially available edge seal products are patterned.  Designed in 2009 to protect security and architectural laminated glass composites, regardless of interlayer type (TPU, EVA or PVB), this unique product sandwiches a proprietary foil layer between two sheets of tough, chemical-resistant polyurethane. 

ArgoEdgeSealPLUS® protects glass laminates in two ways: (1) From penetration by moisture, cleaners and solvents found in sealants and caulks that can degrade interlayers and certain optical substrates, leading to edge fogging.  (2) From minor edge chipping during handling and installation.   It offers the ultimate in performance and is compatible with glass-to-glass, glass-to-polycarbonate, and other common substrates used in security and architectural applications.

About us

Company details

Engineered for Tomorrow

SWM is a leading global provider of engineered solutions and advanced materials.  From our origins as paper-making experts during the Renaissance to our cutting-edge technologies that solve today's modern business challenges, SWM has consistently demonstrated a forward-looking approach to helping our customers succeed.  Our history of performance is thanks in large part to our fundamental manufacturing expertise of roll goods and our deep understanding of the industries we serve.

In recent years, as we focused on expanding our reach beyond fiber-based materials, SWM established and grew its Advanced Materials & Structures (AMS) platform to include expertise and capabilities in resin-based technologies and materials.  As part of this effort, SWM acquired and integrated several global leaders specializing in market-leading netting and high-performance TPU films.  One of these, Argotec, has been the premier extruder of TPU optical interlayers, supplying over 50% of the world's total usage.  SWM will use its far greater resources to continue to drive growth and develop new glass lamination products. 

Today, SWM has the cleanest, most modern interlayer film extrusion operation in North America.  With decades of success behind us and an ambitious future ahead, now more than ever, our global enterprise is engineered for tomorrow.
