skai® MATTEX

With skai® Mattex, Continental will present an innovation in the area of single-color exterior surfaces, which will create new inspiration in the market. 

Visually, skai® Mattex doesn’t just follow the ongoing matt trend. Rather, we will be presenting the mattest matt that is available on the market for laminated surfaces. The extreme matt surface has a gloss level of 2. This innovation is the result of a development process, the goal of which was to perfectly replicate the look and feel of powder-coated aluminum with a particularly fine, yet concisely structured surface.

In reality, a vinyl window laminated with skai® Mattex is indistinguishable from a window with powder-coated aluminum cladding. Due to the extremely matt finish, the surface looks very high-quality. When the surface is touched, this impression is reinforced. 

The surface is particularly scratch resistant due to its newly developed grain structure. In addition, it is sealed with a PVDF layer. This is characterized by a particularly low surface tension and is therefore easy to clean. At the same time, it is highly resistant to chemicals. Due to its high temperature resistance, the PVDF layer shows no gloss development during either welding or bending.

SE-381 EVA

SWM™ is a global leader in Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) interlayer film solutions. Our diverse Argotec™ interlayer film product line is custom engineered to offer precision extrusions for a variety of glass lamination applications. SWM films are unmatched in optical clarity, hot and cold characteristics and offer the best overall quality in the glass lamination industry. Argotec EVA Interlayer Film is custom engineered from copolymer resin and is used as an interlayer sandwiched between two pieces of glass or plastic sheet. Argotec EVA interlayer film is ideal for use in smart glass applications like privacy for conference rooms.

Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Interlayer Film

Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Interlayer Film Argotec™ Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Interlayer Film, custom engineered from high-performance resin, provides strength and optical clarity when sandwiched between multiple layers of glass and/or plastic sheets. These glass lamination films provide unmatched optical clarity, lay flat, and overall consistent quality. SWM thermoplastic polyurethane TPU film is used extensively in aerospace, military and commercial bullet-, impact- and hurricane- resistant composites. Copolymer-based optical interlayer EVA films are used to laminate architectural switchable glass composites.

EVALAYER High Density Level D-380

EVALAYER High Density Level D-380 is a full cross-linked thermoset EVA film for glass lamination that offers the highest density level of EVA component in the market. By having higher density, the adhesion on the laminated glass edges will be stronger, the UV rays rejection and the moisture resistant will be higher and the sound proofing performance will be better, making the final product very stable over time.

Combining the unparalleled cross-linking capabilities with the D-380 Density level of EVALAYER, the laminated glass producers will have unlimited options to offer to their clients on safety, decorative and architectural laminated glass among others.

Density is a measure of mass per volume. Using EVALAYER D-380 films is the same of having a new bottle of water filled to drink. In the case of EVALAYER all the roll is filled with EVA component. Lower density EVA films could be compared with partial-filled new bottles of water. Would you buy a half-filled new bottle of water?

There is only one EVALAYER High Density Level D-380. It is from us.

STRATO® RIGIDO

Satinal is proud to announce the launch of STRATO® RIGIDO, its first structural laminating interlayer.

STRATO® RIGIDO is compliant with EN 16613 certification so, thanks to its certified structural characteristics, it is suitable to withstand large loadings without losing its rigidity.

STRATO® RIGIDO provides maximum protection against strong impacts: the breakage of the glass component does not affect the whole laminated structure.

This interlayer, compatible with STRATO® CLEAR and COLOUR System, not only grants structural and rigidity characteristics to the glass, but also provides other properties, such as colour, transparency, UV protection, sound insulation, solar control and bird safety.

Other characteristics of STRATO® RIGIDO are: 

·        Structural post-breakage resistance across a wide range of low and high temperatures

·        Excellent open-edge stability, not subject to moisture infiltrations

·        Compatibility with STRATO® CLEAR and STRATO® COLOUR system

·        Possibility to use thinner glasses, reducing costs and carbon footprint

·        Developed for hurricane glazing, ballistic resistance, facades, balustrades, stairs and partitions

S125 Static Table - Interlayer Cutter

Single- to low-ply precision cutting, marking, and punching of glass interlayer material

Eastman’s static table system is capable of cutting, marking, and punching virtually any flexible material at speeds of up to 60 inches per second (152.4 cm/sec.). The static table system is available in a range of system lengths and widths to meet the demands for prototypes, one-offs and full-production runs. The system’s high-precision configuration features multi-axis motion for more defined and accurate cuts. Material is spread across the static table by an operator or with the use of a pneumatic gripper bar. The open plenum vacuum system design ensures evenly dispersed airflow for optimal material hold-down. This computer-controlled system features zoning capabilities to enable cutting in one area while the operator is simultaneously picking parts in another, maximizing daily production capacity.

  • Choice of standard, heavy-duty, or fiber tool head, featuring individually aligned and calibrated tool spindles with your choice of over 60 blades, punches, and notches.
  • A library feature within the operating control software allows the operator to save commonly used tool pressures and blade assignments based on job and material files.
  • Prevent unauthorized changes to the system and software with restricted login access.

C125 Conveyor System - Interlayer Cutter

Continuously cut and convey glass interlayer material with consistent speed and control

The Eastman Eagle C125 conveyor system, an automated interlayer cutter, boasts supreme capabilities for single- to low-ply cutting requirements. It has the ability to continuously convey rolled material goods with consistent speed and control. Eastman's gantry and tool head design are engineered to cut a variety of interlayer materials while exceeding industry standards for accuracy. The robust conveyor design delivers unrivaled levels of material utilization and is often capable of cutting multiple layers without plastic overlay. This computer-controlled cutting system requires minimal operator guidance to automatically feed and spread the material to the identified start position.

  • Exclusive InMotion™ software enables the conveyor to continuously move while the gantry is cutting (option)
  • Tremendous efficiency for pattern pieces exceeding the table length
  • Choice of 60 blades, punches, and notches
