Insulating Glass units consist of two lites of glass enclosing a hermetically sealed air space. The lites are held apart by a spacer around the entire perimeter. The spacer contains a moisture-absorbent material called a desiccant that serves to keep the enclosed air free of moisture. The entire perimeter of the assembly is sealed with one or more sealants.
There are two basic types of coated glass: solar control (Reflective) and low-emissivity (Low-E). The major differences are visible light transmission, UV, visibility, and near infrared wavelengths of energy that are reflected and the directions in which these wavelengths are usually reflected. All Low-E coatings reflect the radiant heat given off by an electric coil-type heater, as well as the heat that comes from a hot air register.
Laminated glass is two or more lites of glass and one or more interlayers of Plasticized Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB) permanently bonded together under heat and pressure. It provides performance benefits in architectural applications. Its most important characteristic is the ability of the interlayer to support and hold the glass when broken. This provides for increased protection against fallout and penetration of the opening.
Tempered glass is generally four times stronger than annealed glass. When broken, fully tempered glass usually breaks into a multitude of small fragments. It is used in side and rear vehicle glass and safety glazing locations such as entrance doors and side lites.
Burglar-Resisting Glass typically consists of two lites of glass bonded by a plastic interlayer, which is resistant to penetration.
Bullet-Resisting Glass is available in “all glass” configurations or in glass-clad polycarbonate make-ups. The thickness and configuration of the product will determine the ballistic protection.
