In this accredited AIA presentation, Kuraray’s Mark Jacobson will introduce attendees to the important concepts around laminated glass and its applications in architecture.
Laminated glass has been used in a variety of architectural applications, ranging from office buildings and schools to institutional and high security buildings. A variety of clear and tinted interlayers are available, providing post-breakage glass retention, UV filtration, acoustic dampening and impact resistance.
This course presents the history and development of laminated glass from its inception as an automotive product to more advanced structural glass applications. In addition to the course material, an additional aspect of the presentation will be a “how to” segment on selecting the appropriate interlayer for a particular application.
This will include going through a decision tree based on the application to come up with the best choice of interlayer.
