SentryGlas® Interlayer

Structural interlayer material for storm, blast, ballistic, and single-point supported glass applications

About SentryGlas® Interlayer

Two sheets of SentryGlas® Interlayer standing on their sideKuraray SentryGlas® (SG5000) and SentryGlas® XTRA™ (SGX™) (SG6000) are interlayers designed to be laminated between two or multiple layers of glass. Originally developed for the security and hurricane glazing markets, SentryGlas® interlayers are now being specified by architects and engineers for applications where high performance glass is required.

SentryGlas® Interlayer can be ordered as 'cut-to-size', 'cut-to-fit' or 'cut-to-form' sheet, which means that none of the material is wasted.

SentryGlas® Interlayer Properties and Material Options

SentryGlas® (SG5000)– interlayer is stronger and more rigid than conventional laminating materials, creating safety glass that protects against storms, impacts, and blasts. The interlayers become an engineered component within the glass, holding more weight, so the glass can serve as a more active structural element in the building envelope, increasing framing system design freedom. SentryGlas® is less susceptible to moisture, weathering, and edge defects than other interlayers.

SentryGlas® XTRA™ (SGX™) (SG6000)– interlayer sheet offers improved adhesion to the air side of glass without requiring an adhesion promoter. SGX™ optical performance and haze formation are much less sensitive to the autoclave cooling rate. The lower haze makes producing very thick laminates of outstanding optical quality easy to achieve. SGX™ complies with global safety glazing codes ANSI Z97.1, EN14449, EN12543, EN12600, EN356 and Safety Glazing Certification Council (SGCC). Properly laminated and installed, SGX™ laminates of 2.53 mm caliper have been tested and pass the large missile impact test per ASTM E 1996.

Structural Glazing– Structural interlayer helps architects and glazed building system manufacturers meet society’s need for greater security, energy efficiency, noise reduction, and safety requirements. It helps architects do more with less, creating innovative new spaces, while providing greater protection for occupants. SentryGlas® improves longterm weather resistance of laminated glass systems.

Safety & Security Glazing– Interlayers are used in a broad range of safety and security applications to offer protection. When designing security glass for bullet and blast resistant buildings or vehicles, SentryGlas® will help let light in and keep trouble out.

Decorative Glazing– There are many ways to decorate laminated safety glass using SentryGlas®  interlayer by embedding a metal mesh or metallized PET fabric or by printing on a PVB interlayer.

Transportation– SentryGlas® interlayers help build lighter-weight, more fuel-efficient vehicles that withstand harsh climate conditions while ensuring passenger safety.

Tech Tip– SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers help create safety glass that protects against bigger storms, larger impacts and more powerful blasts. SentryGlas® is 5 times tougher, up to 100 times stiffer than conventional laminating materials. See the technical bulletin on ballistics-resistant glazing compositions.
