Laminated glass is a multifunctional glazing material that can be used in a variety of applications. It is manufactured by permanently bonding two or more glass lites with polyvinyl butyral (PVB) inter-layers, under heat and pressure, to create a single construction. If broken by impact, laminated glass tends to maintain the building envelope by remaining integral in its frame.
This minimizes the risk of injury from sharp edges and flying or falling glass particles. It also strongly resists penetration of objects. Laminated glass is particularly suitable where it is important to ensure integrity of the whole sheet after breakage.
Spandrel / Opaci
Garibaldi Glass uses one of the most trusted and most extensively used spandrel glass coatings in the architectural flat glass market today, ICD’s OPACI-COAT-300® Water-based Spray Silicone Glass coating. All of ICD’s products can be infinitely custom color matched to meet your need, all done with color spectrophotometer’s with extremely high tolerances. Which means the color you want is the color you get.
Heat soaking is a process that potentially exposes critical NiS inclusions in fully tempered glass. At Garibaldi Glass we have the ability with our “Heat Soak Oven” to meet all heat soak job requirements at current E.U. standards. Heat soaking will provide our customers with an additional defined level of confidence where required with your existing project.
Heat Soaking Process:
Heat soaking is a potential destructive test.
Standard heat soak testing requires more than ten hours of thermal treatment including 1 to 6 hours to heat large quantities of glass to 290 C followed by a temperature plateau at these temperatures for 3—12 hours before cooling down slowly to ambient temperature. This causes glass containing nickel sulfide inclusions to break in the heat soak chamber, thus reducing the risk of potential field breakage.
Glass without detrimental inclusions will retain proper temper properties and will have minimal risks of spontaneous breakage in the field. While Heat soaking is not 100% effective it will reduce the probability of breakage from a standard 8 in 1,000 to 5 in 1,000
Heat Soak Capabilities:
- Max Glass sheet size = 104” x 204”
- 3—19 mm
- Max load = 24 sheets or 10,000 lbs
Heat Soak Oven Specifications:
- Approx. 6hr soak time (varies depending on size, weight, # pieces, glass thickness).
- Approx. 1.5hr change over time
Total cycle time = 8 hr per load
Garibaldi Glass currently heat soaks to the European standard for heat soaking EN 14179–1:2005 (HST).
Currently there is no North American standard for heat soaking.
