HOW IT WORKS
High-performance glass products offering new solutions by combining the technical and aesthetic qualities of laminated glass for architectural projects. With Vanceva Colour and Vanceva Design you have a choice. Vanceva products are the results of Solutia’s expertise in manufacturing the plastic film-PVB- which is incorporated into laminated glass. Thanks to Vanceva Colour and Vanceva Design, it is now possible to choose patterns and colours best suited to the glass applications desired, without abandoning the specific advantages of laminated glass.
Vanceva Colour and Vanceva Design:
discover new solutions for your needs Vanceva Colour and Vanceva Design plastic interlayers are composite films, which allow decorative laminated glass to be manufactured, thanks to the choice of colours, and patterns they offer. Encapsulated between two films of PVB and inserted between two layers of glass, the patterns and colours are total protected against outside stresses, and remain stable over the years. Different interlayers can also be combined, offering new and unique decorative opportunities.
These products enrich the range of glass products by allowing architects, designers, and experts in interiors, etc. to design interior layouts or buildings with an individual touch, where laminated glass becomes a quite separate element of decoration. Using Vanceva Colour and Design products, design professionals can, from now on, give free range to their imagination, without this involving concessions regarding resistance to weather, acoustic insulation, the safety of people and property, or concerns of a reduction in harmful luminous effects.
Compared with other decorative glass products, the patterns and colours of laminated plate gloss based on Vanceva interlayers are protected from damage due to scratching, dirt and some detergents. They are also easier to maintain. In addition, Vanceva Colour and Vanceva Design can be used with ordinary laminated glass as with heat toughened glass, chemically toughened glass and insulating glass. Thus they offer solutions suited to the different technical performances required, without harming the originality and creativity of projects.
The specific advantages of Vanceva products can clearly be added to the specific advantages of PVB laminated glass, i.e., the protection of people and property, acoustic protection and protection against UV rays.
Reinforced acoustic insulation
Laminated glass reduces undesirable noise more effectively than standard glass, thanks to its composition based on PVB, the elasticity of which dulls the effects of resonance and coincidence specific to glass materials.
Protection against UV rays
By acting as a filter to harmful UV rays, Vanceva interlayers contribute to protection against discoloration and damage to furniture, fabrics and furnishings, wall coverings, etc.
Increased protection for people
Thanks to its plastic interlayer, laminated glass is resistant to accidental impact. Compared with ordinary glass, it does not shatter into dangerous fragments when it breaks: the shards of glass generally adhere to the interlayer, which means there is a lower risk of injury and material damage. Laminated windows based on Vanceva interlayers meet the requirements of British Standard BS EN ISO 12543 – 1 to 6, covering laminated glass and its properties.
Greater safety for property
Complying with standard BS EN 356 which governs glass products liable to vandalism and house-breaking, Vanceva films contribute to the protection of property by offering increased resistance to blows (even repeated blows) or glass cutters.
Further structural qualities
Compared with ordinary glass, laminated glass based on Vanceva interlayers offers greater resistance to wind, falls for snow and natural phenomena such as storms, hurricanes and earthquakes.
