 Triplex glass
What is triplex and its advantages
Due to the rapid evolution of production technologies, the initial associations with the fragility and delicacy of glass materials have firmly sunk into oblivion. Particularly contributed to this fact by the invention of the French chemist Edward Benedictus at the beginning of the last century, the laminated glass unit triplex. The name itself, translated from Latin meaning "triple", implies the principle of multi-layering, and the principle of production is based on the combination of glass and polymeric materials.
The glass structures manufactured using triplex technology have a number of unique advantages, despite the higher price compared to ordinary glass:
They do not form splinters and possess enhanced traumatic safety characteristics for humans,
Doors triplex prevent vandalism and penetration into the room,
Provide sufficient heat and sound insulation - the composition of the polymer film includes sound-absorbing resin with a level of 30-40 dB,
Able to perform decorative functions.

Compared with tempered glass, the increased strength of which depends on the alternation of the processes of heating and cooling, triplex is a multi-layer fabric in which all glass layers are connected with polymers. At the same time, if the tempered glass sheet is over-resistant to temperature effects, then the glass unit triplex - to mechanical. The production of the triplex is a complex and multi-step procedure, an integral part of which is the bonding of several float glasses with a polymer composition. Versions of triplex glass depend on several factors: the number of layers, thickness, and features of the used glass cloths and bonding composition. On the one hand, this allows to obtain optimal sound and thermal insulation characteristics, strength properties, and on the other, to coordinate the overall thickness and weight, as well as the price of the product. Depending on the modification of the polymer, there are:
Jellied triplex - glass webs glued together with a liquid polymer composition, photocurable

Film glass unit triplex - in this case, an EVA film is used as a binding material. The thickness of the film varies from different manufacturers, but the minimum value of the total thickness will not be less than 5 mm.
The filler triplex in terms of strength characteristics significantly exceeds the film one, which in turn is inferior to ordinary tempered glass. The main feature of glass manufactured using triplex technology is the retention of structural integrity with significant mechanical stress. In glass units triplex maximum it will be possible to make a hole with a size not exceeding the parameters of the object of impact. At the same time, the construction still remains stable, does not lose its protective properties and does not allow penetration inside, despite the "web" of cracks in the plane. Having taken a similar effect, tempered glass, for example, breaks up into safety fragments. Paying attention to the photo, you can see how the bullet-proof glass is tested for durability.

It is also worth adding that for the convenience of classification according to the level of safety and impact resistance, triplex glass is divided according to the protection class:
Classes "A" and "B" - anti-burglary, resistant to impact and penetration glazing. Suitable for commercial buildings, office buildings, lower floors of residential buildings.
Classes "B" and "D" - armored glazing, resistant to explosions and armed attacks. Provides reliable protection, has a high price and is suitable for construction sites with significant values ​​inside.
