Strengthening Interlayers

Our strengthening interlayers can be used within glass structures to improve the strength, safety and security of our glass installations.

Modern Glass Technology by IQ Glass

Security Glass

Extra Strengthening Interlayers are used within architectural glazing to produce a stronger yet thinner glass installation, able to withstand massive structural loads and even create a blast resistance glass installation.

The specialised Ionoplast interlayers used by IQ Glass is 5 times stronger and 100 times stiffer than standard PVB interlayers used in most structural glass assemblies.

Slim and clear, these strengthening interlayers increase the strength of structural and framed glass installations allowing for thinner glass units to be used or for the creation of glass constructions able to withstand hurricane wind forces or destructive blasts.

Ionoplast Interlayers

These interlayers are also much clearer than a standard PVB interlayer and work well with Low Iron Glass to create clear, transparent glass installations. They are useful in structural glazing to allow vertical glass panels to take the weight load of adjoining items.

Strengthening Interlayers are especially useful in structural glass balustrade constructions. As well as creating a glass balustrade with reduced deflection the advanced polymer used in the manufacture of these strengthening interlayers has a lower moisture absorption rate therefore elongating the life longevity of any external frameless balustrades. IQ Glass recommends the use of strengthening interlayers within any external frameless balustrade.

In some situations the strengthening interlayers can be used to create hurricane or blast resistant glass installations. The strong and multiple interlayers within a hurricane or blast resistant glass construction reduce any ‘spawl’ or flying glass which is the largest contributor to human injury from a destructive blast.
