                                                                    LAMINATED GLASS

The concept behind laminated glass is at once both very simple and very clever; the idea is that if the glass should shatter – and a normal pane of window glass would fragment into sharp edged dangerous pieces – it does not fall apart.

Laminated glass is prevented from shattering as it consists of two sheets of glass with a special film between them; this special film is generally made from a material called polyvinyl butyral, otherwise known as PVB, and the broken fragments stick to the PVB film after breaking.
