What is “laminated” glass?

Laminated glass is considered a safety glass and is primarily used because of its safety, security and sound abatement characteristics. It is particularly suitable where it is useful to maintain the structural integrity of the piece in question after breakage.

Adhering two or more pieces of glass together with a vinyl layer using heat and pressure produces laminated glass. In case of breakage, the PVB interlayer holds the fragments together and thus continues to provide resistance to the passage of persons or objects. The bond also holds the glass panes together and prevents shattering and production of sharp shards which is typical of glass breakage.

Laminated glass is great for glass coffee table tops, end table tops and dining table tops in homes with small children because it helps reduce the risk of the glass breaking into sharp, dangerous shards.
