DuPont: New Capacity for Safety Glass Interlayers

DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions announced that new production capabilities for its safety glass interlayers are now operational. The facilities expansions were put in place in response to strong global demand growth for impact-resistant glass. Key to the expansion is opening of the company’s new manufacturing line in Fayetteville, North
Carolina, which makes DuPont SentryGlasPlus interlayers for global markets.
SentryGlasPlus continues to be used to address the extreme demands of
applications around the world and is finding new applications including
embassies, high-rise building facades, balustrades, handrails, floors and
overhead glazing. DuPont’s latest glass interlayer offering provides
architects with expanded capabilities for meeting increasingly stringent
building codes, especially in hurricane markets. It is stronger, clearer and
more durable than traditional interlayers.
DuPont also opened a new facility in Wilmington, Del., for making
SentryGlasExpressions, an innovative safety glass offering that brings
together DuPont inkjet and polymer science to meet the need of architects
and designers for decorative architectural glazing. With the new
technology, designers now have the ability to customize designs and images
with photographic realism, along with the safety and security benefits of
laminated glass.
“The investment in these facilities responds to strong global demand growth
and demonstrates DuPont’s commitment to this business and to becoming
the leading supplier and innovator of glass laminating solutions for a better,
safer world,” said Luigi Robbiati, global business director for DuPont Glass
Laminating Solutions. “SentryGlas® solutions are opening up entirely new
applications for the use of glass in buildings where it has never been used
before, with many new possibilities for building design.”
