Glass  |  Laminating Lines
Laminated glass consists of a tough interlayer commonly made of PVB (PolyVinyl Butyral) bonded together between two panes of glass under heat and pressure to be applied in an Autoclave. Alternatively, it becomes popular to use EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) as a bonding agent since its application is simpler and eliminates the necessity of autoclave.
EVA - Lamination Furnaces
It is a typical truck furnace equipped with high efficiency vacuum pump and a PID vacuum regulator. Once glass panes to be laminated with EVA are placed into the furnace in special vacuum bags, then curing process is applied with high speed circulation fans and the vacuum pump.
It is simply a pressure vessel that can be operated at about (10 ~ 14) bars and (100 ~ 150)°C. Prelaminated glass pans are loaded by a truck into the autoclave and curing cycle is applied. It is a standard equipment of facilities for PVB lamination.
