Goes through a special treatment, ensuring that, in the event of breakage, it will shatter into small particles with less sharp edges than that of standard glass, thus, with reduced risk of accidents. Such treatment provides the glass with greater mechanical and thermal strength. Because of its characteristics, after such treatment, it cannot be cut or drilled anymore
Check out the main tips for laminated glass maintenance.
Composed of two or more sheets of glass held in place by means of heat and pressure through one or more interlayers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). In the event of breakage, this glass ensures that the splinters remain together, stuck to the PVB. In addition to resisting to higher levels of impact, laminated glass provides great acoustic comfort and, depending on its composition, major thermal comfort with high energy savings.
Mirrors are made with large standard flat glass sheets. A machine makes the moves by placing the glass sheet on the conveyor. That is where mirror manufacture starts. The glass is washed only with water to remove residues; in other machines there are dozens of round brushes and sponges. The process uses only demineralized water, which means free of mineral salts, avoiding the accumulation of impurities and friction with the glass.
Then it is time to apply a layer of metallic silver, obtained from chemical reactions of silver nitrate. The process is controlled by computer. The paint is a protection against corrosion. As a warranty, the glass is then given a second coat of paint. The color does not matter, this decision is incumbent upon the manufacturer.
We must emphasize that both maintenance and cleaning of mirrors must not be made the same way as that of standard, tempered or laminated glass. Here are some basic care tips:
