Saflex®: Setting the Standard

When Saflex and Vanceva color PVB products incorporate a minimum 30 gauge interlayer, we are confident in stating that it passes standard ASTM/ANSI/CPSC standards when the same nominal thickness is used.

Approvals The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the architectural glazing safety sections of model building codes have set uniform requirements for the performance of glazing materials. Two-ply laminated glass with 0.015 in. (0.38 mm) thick Solutia's PVB based interlayer typically meets requirements for Category I, two-ply laminated glass with 0.030" (0.76 mm) thick Solutia's PVB based interlayer typically meets requirements for Category II.

Laminated glass with Solutia's PVB based interlayer meets requirements for ASTM F1233 Forced Entry Testing and UL 972.

Solutia's PVB based interlayers are approved for use in Dade County, Florida and have been issued as NOA#98-0728.05 and NOA#99-1227.02

European Norms

Saflex and Vanceva color products contain at least one PVB interlayer of a minimum thickness of 0.38mm. They therefore meet the European norms on laminated safety glass.
