Acoustic laminated glass consists of two or more sheets of glass bonded together, or by one or more acoustic Polyvinyl Butyral interlayers, knows as PVB. This form of glass gives an improvement of 3db – 5db depending on the thickness of the PVB layer, when compared to ordinary toughened glass of the same thickness.
Laminated tempered glass also takes the idea of safety glass a step further. Tempered glass is very safe, but if somehow broken, still results in loose pieces of broken glass. Although dull, these can still be a hassle. Laminated safety glass keeps those pieces of glass safely in place.
Laminated acoustic glass is commonly used for luxury automotive windshields and windows, and is responsible for the amazing soundproofing within such vehicles.
