    Saflex business segments

    - Automotive: In automotive applications, Saflex PVB interlayers offer solutions for windshield weight reduction and reduced interior cabin noise without compromising passenger safety. Laminated glass made with Saflex enhanced acoustic interlayer is lighter than traditional automotive glass. As a result, Saflex enables automakers to reduce vehicle weight, helping them meet and exceed global environmental regulations such as the CO² emissions standards in the Kyoto Protocol as well as the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.

    - Architecture: Saflex interlayers are valued in architectural applications for the safety, security, acoustic, solar, and structural benefits provided. From hurricanes to bomb blasts, Saflex provides safety and security from shattered glass by holding the glass to the interlayer on impact. Saflex interlayers provide protection from damaging ultraviolet solar rays, in addition to acoustic sound dampening benefits that are valued in spaces such as airports, restaurants, and industrial complexes.
