DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions recently announced the commercial launch of DuPont™ SentryGlas® N-UV ionoplast interlayer, a new interlayer technology for durable architectural safety glass with unsurpassed transmission of natural UV light into spaces containing special light-requiring flora and fauna.
In this issue, learn about the benefits of SentryGlas® N-UV and how botanists and other life science professionals benefitted from this innovation.
Projects with High-UV-Transmissive DuPont Interlayer
- South Korea's National Ecological Institute (NEI) "Ecorium," a 33,090-square-meter, multi-domed, multi-climate-zone nature reserve and sustainability-minded study center
- Indoor Amazonian rainforest exhibit at the CosmoCaixa science museum in Barcelona
- "Tropenhaus" rare species botanical garden in Berlin, Germany
- Dolphin rehabilitation center in Atlanta, Georgia.
SentryGlas® N-UV offers up to 100 times the stiffness and 5 times the toughness of traditional safety glass interlayers, allowing for larger glass spans, further improving natural light transmittion when used in combination with high-transmissivity glass.
