Laminated glass is created by adhering two pieces of annealed glass together by a vinyl layer. This layer will continue to hold the glass together in the event that it is struck or dropped. Laminated glass also offers superior sound-proofing characteristics. Here are a few things you need to know about your custom laminated glass order.
You can use laminated glass in areas where you need something sturdy yet with the aesthetics of real glass.
Like tempered glass, laminated glass is considered a safety glass. Tempered glass is heat treated to achieve its durability, and when struck, tempered glass breaks in to smooth-edged small pieces. This is much safer than annealed or standard glass, which can break into shards.
Laminated glass, unlike tempered glass, is not heat treated. Instead, the vinyl layer inside serves as a bond that keeps the glass from shattering into large shards. Many times the vinyl layer ends up keeping the glass together.
