SafeLite CIP Laminated Safety Glass

(CIP) is a process to make laminated glass using a liquid resin.  The glass sheets are separated by a special edge tape and the void filled with a resin which is cured by chemical reaction over time or by UV radiation which enables the cure.  Several grades of resin exist for different applications such as safety and acoustic (SoundStop), and they are commonly made in 1mm, 1.5mm and 1.8mm resin thicknesses to suit the tape thickness.

The SafeLite Cast-in-Place (CIP) process is ideal for low volume production of specialty laminates, as the panes are normally made to size.  Most glass types can be laminated, but some restrictions apply to high UV eliminating glasses.  The CIP safety glass process is third party audited which means that Metro Performance Glass is licensed to manufacture liquid laminated safety glass to AS/NZS 2208 (license number 2465) 

The limitations of SafeLite CIP laminated glass are that the clear edge tape is normally visible at the edge and can be attacked by sealants, especially polyurethane.  Some size and glass type make up restrictions also apply, as the resin is cured with UV light that must be able to transmit through the glass panes.
