March 1, 2021 Product Hunt11

Distributed By Saugaat In India, Product Available As Single Layer In Thicknesses Of 0.76 mm & 1.52 mm

Trosifol SC from Kuraray is an advanced acoustic PVB interlayer that is based on monolayer technology and has a great competitive edge over the conventional acoustic PVB based on multilayer technology.

Basic differences between advanced acoustic PVB and conventional acoustic PVB.

Advance Acoustic PVB
(Monolayer Technology)
Conventional Acoustic PVB
(Trilayer Technology)
It’s a homogeneous monolayer. Available in 0.76 & 1.52 mmBased on trilayer technology. Softer core layer is sandwiched between two layers of standard PVB. Its available in 0.76 mm thickness
Improves acoustic performance by 3dB compared to standard PVBImproves acoustic performance by 3 dB compared to standard PVB
Stacking not required as 1.52 mm thickness is available. Normal de-airing process is sufficient as there are no interfaces.Requires stacking with 0.76 mm Clear PVB to achieve 1.52 mm. A good de-airing process is necessary to remove entrapped air pockets between the interfaces
No ice flower defects as structure is homogeneous.Vulnerable to Ice Flower defects due to heterogeneous structure of the interlayer
Has a high adhesion that makes it ideal choice for tempered glass.Best suited for automotive applications that make use of annealed glass laminates. Does not have a high adhesion and thus not suitable for tempered glass laminates.
No optical distortionOptical distortion is apparent when used laminated IGUs
