STRATO® EVA: The Future of Glass Lamination
Glass lamination is an essential process in the world of architecture and interior design. The process is used to enhance the durability, safety, and aesthetics of glass structures. One of the most recent solutions in glass lamination is STRATO® EVA.
STRATO® EVA is a polymeric material that has been specifically designed to create a high-performing product in terms of composition, durability, aesthetics, and processing costs. This innovative material has numerous advantages over traditional laminating materials, making it a popular choice for designers and architects alike.
Composition and Safety
One of the most significant benefits of STRATO® EVA is its thermosetting chemical composition, with more than a 94 percent curing rate (test performed on STRATO® Extra Chiaro). This composition ensures a high level of protection for architectonic buildings, even in exceptional weather conditions like high temperatures, humidity, and extreme atmospheric conditions. Additionally, in case of breakage, the fragments will be retained by STRATO® EVA film, reducing the risk of accidents.
UV Ray Protection and Sound Insulation
STRATO® EVA film filters up to 99 percent of UV rays at 380nm wavelength, making it an excellent solution for structures that require sun protection. The material also provides great sound insulation, making it ideal for buildings in noisy areas.
STRATO® EVA is not a hygroscopic material, which means it is resistant to humidity and water infiltration in the corners of laminated glass, reducing any risk of delamination. This property ensures the longevity of the laminated glass.
STRATO® EVA film has a high level of transparency, ensuring brightness in any space. Additionally, STRATO® EVA COLOUR is the perfect solution for those looking to personalize buildings or design interiors with a touch of color, without compromising the natural light of living spaces.
One of the significant benefits of STRATO® EVA is its low processing costs. A laminated glass with STRATO® EVA film can be processed with a convection oven, like Lamijet Convection or Lamijet 04-2c by TK srl. These ovens have small or medium dimensions and are accessible to small and medium companies.
Why Choose EVA Interlayer for Glass Lamination?
Satinal SpA has been the very first EVA production site in Italy, guaranteeing high standards required by a very high-quality product. The application of the EVA film is a delicate process that requires great precision for the temperatures and cycle times applied. The quality controls, which are carried out in the Satinal R&D laboratory, aim to guarantee perfect adhesion of the material to the glass surface. The experience acquired in the treatment of EVA-based materials is essential to master their potential and fully exploit their characteristics.
