Saflex® Storm interlayers are specifically designed and formulated to meet the exacting building requirements for laminated glass in severe wind and windborne debris markets. These are tough, resilient interlayers that provide rigidity, strength, glass adhesion, and protection against windborne debris and flying objects. Laminated glass made with Saflex Storm PVB interlayer is designed to retain glass shards in post breakage scenarios.
Whereas no single product offers complete protect from a powerful cyclone or storm, these solutions can be used to help maintain the building envelope and aid in keeping the structure intact throughout the duration of severe wind storms, and until replacement can be made of any broken or damaged glazing. Saflex Storm interlayers can be used for impact resistant glazing design of normal and essential facilities. Common large missile impact protection from a flying timber and small missile protection at higher elevations and increased wind loads can be achieved with these products.
The window systems, missile and pressure requirements change based on the type and location of the building, category of a storm and the expected performance criteria for the world region.
