Viracon Insulating Laminated Glass provides the solar controlling properties of an insulating unit along with the safety features of the laminated inboard component. This allows the flexibility to design with hundreds of combinations of tinted glass, high-performance coatings, silk-screen patterns and pigmented interlayers, together or alone. In addition, Insulating Laminated Glass enhances acoustical performance, ultraviolet light protection, and the laminated component is designed to remain integral in the opening should glass damage occur.
As an insulating unit, a desiccant-filled spacer is sealed with an organic sealant. The desiccant absorbs the insulating glass unit's internal moisture. The sealant may be the standard black silicone and PIB or you may choose a more neutral gray silicone/PIB sealant. Viracon uses mill finish and black painted spacers or you can select our popular stainless steel spacer for warm edge performance.
The laminated component features a strong, pvb interlayer bonded between two or more glass plies using heat and pressure.
Often the laminated inboard component is required to provide protection against man-made threats or natural disasters such as hurricanes, bomb blasts or forcible-entry. For detailed information on these applications please see the Protective Glass section.
