STRATO® COLOUR by Satinal: The Revolutionary Choice of Architects and Designers for High-End Laminated Glass
Glass architecture is no longer limited to the use of clear, uncoloured glass. Today, architects and designers are pushing the boundaries of creativity by incorporating coloured interlayers into their designs. These interlayers create stunning plays of light and colour, resulting in beautiful and unique spaces. To meet the demand for this new trend, Satinal has developed STRATO® COLOUR – an innovative range of 100% made in Italy transparent coloured EVA interlayers for high-end applications.
Advantages of STRATO® COLOUR
One of the many advantages of the STRATO® COLOUR range is its versatility. It can be used both indoors and outdoors, in safety glass, curved glass, and in the field of acoustic insulation. Additionally, it guarantees colour uniformity, protection from UV rays, and colour stability. EVA (Vinyl Acetate) is not a hygroscopic material, making it more resistant to humidity than PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral film). PVB is much more sensitive to humidity and more exposed to problems such as water infiltration in the corners of laminated glass, risking delamination. As a result, EVA has been gaining ground in recent years due to its properties.
Another aspect that sets STRATO® COLOUR apart is its economic advantage. The results that can be obtained from EVA products are incomparable to those obtained from PVB, and the processing costs of the latter add up: processing with PVB film requires a special temperature chamber controlled, and the glass must then be processed in an autoclave, an expensive and large machine suitable for companies with large volumes.
Satinal SpA, the first EVA production site in Italy, guarantees the high standards required by a 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.
STRATO® COLOUR is a revolutionary choice for architects and designers who want to take their glass architecture designs to the next level. With its versatility, economic advantage, and quality control, it’s no surprise that STRATO® COLOUR is the preferred choice of architects and designers worldwide.
