Screening Out UV Radiation with Laminated Glass (FB34-12) - Downloadable Out of Stock
Most laminated glass interlayers screen out UV radiation
Furniture, fabrics, and other interior fixtures, as well as valuable paintings and papers, will fade over time. The main contributors to fading are ultraviolet (UV) radiation, visible light, absorbed heat and moisture. Most laminated glass interlayers, available in both commercial and residential fenestration, are formulated to screen out UV radiation below 380 nanometers (nm). The UV filtering characteristics in the laminate interlayer enable laminated glass to reduce the rate of fading and deterioration of these materials.
