Laminated Glass is a safety and security glass and is typically made up of two or more sheets of glass bonded together by an adhesive material. After the interlayer has been placed between the glass sheets, the whole assembly is subjected to heat and pressure to create a solid, durable glass construction. The interlayer is designed to ensures the glass layers remain bonded when broken, minimizing the risk of injury from sharp edges and flying or falling glass particles. Laminated glass is particularly suitable where it is important to ensure integrity of the whole sheet after breakage.
