• New Safety Glass Interlayer for High UV Transmission

    29 June 2012

    DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions announces the commercial launch of DuPont™ SentryGlas® N-UV ionoplast interlayer, a new interlayer technology for durable architectural safety glass with unsurpassed transmission of natural UV light into spaces containing special light-requiring flora and fauna.

    “Bringing full-spectrum light through laminated glass is proving attractive to botanists and other life science professionals,” said DuPont Advanced Interlayer Business Director Ron Hull. “Our decision to fully commercialize and promote SentryGlas® N-UV ionoplast interlayer for this market reflects growing demand from around the world for this unique product.”

    The latest project specified in high-UV-transmissive DuPont interlayer is South Korea’s National Ecological Institute (NEI) “Ecorium” project, a 33,090 m2, multi-domed, multi-climate-zone nature reserve and sustainability-minded study centre under construction in Seocheon-gun. For each project, DuPont specially manufactures its high-strength ionoplast interlayer without using UV blockers, allowing construction of laminated glass panels with improved transmission of shorter-wavelength UV-A and UV-B ultraviolet light. While invisible to humans, UV light is critically needed by many terrestrial and aquatic species for food identification, mating and display, proper growth and good health in environments as close as possible to their normal outdoor habitat.
