Glacier™ AR SAFE is a laminated glass solution that offers anti-reflection, impact resistance, and shatterproof protection.
The lamination process works by applying heat and pressure to a ‘sandwich’ of two layers of glass, with a PVB film layer in between. This lamination melts and bonds the two glasses together. Additional interlayers can be combined with the PVB film to provide color, solar heat reflection, or other desired features. The optical performance is on the same high level as Glacier™ AR.
The result of the lamination is a very impact-resistant and shatterproof display window for use in public environments. This means that should the glass break, the spreading of shards is minimized with Glacier™ AR SAFE.
The solution, therefore, is mostly used as safety glass in vandal-proof applications.
We try to provide you as much information as possible, but it’s hard to provide all information in just one page.
There are a lot of exceptions depending on what features you need for your application. Because of these exceptions, we are more than happy to talk with you about our options.
We are – after all – experts when it comes to optical filter and cover glass solutions.
Cast PMMA is not always better than extruded PMMA.
We’ve written a whitepaper where we go into detail about the pros and cons of each PMMA type, so you can better judge which acrylic type you should choose for your future projects.
