Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) is a sheet interlayer developed and used internationally for laminating glass and photovoltaic solar panels. EVA is ideal for laminating special inserts inside the laminate such as PET film and mesh and is ideal for decorative and stone laminates. However, it is also suitable for laminating float glass and specialty glass products such as toughened laminates and screen or digital printed glass. EVA is also available in colours, which are normally for internal use only.
The EVA process usually involves a special batch oven to create temperature with pressure created with vacuum bags, and is a low to medium volume process. The SafeLite EVA safety glass process is third party audited which means Metro Performance Glass is licensed to manufacture Liquid Laminated Safety Glass to AS/NZS 2208 (license number 2465 and 2625).
SafeLite EVA interlayer is typically 0.4 and 0.8mm and can be layered to 1.2 and 1.6 mm thick. It is less susceptible to temperature softening and edge de-lamination, as it has high moisture resistance, so it is ideal for exposed edge applications, such as balustrades and canopies, and for laminating inserts into the glass.
Safelite laminated glass qualifies as a Grade A Safety Glass in accordance with NZS 4223: Part 3 and AS/NZ 2208 "Safety glazing materials in buildings".
Metro Performance Glass is at the forefront of providing high-performance glass and hardware along with industry leading service to Australasian residential and commercial construction markets.Product Enquiries
