Launches UVEKOL® A Glass Laminating System in the Americas
Cytec Industries Inc. of West Paterson, N.J., has launched the
UVEKOL® A glass laminating system for acoustic applications requiring
superior sound control along with strength, architectural design
flexibility, and optical quality.
UVEKOL A is a pre-formulated liquid system that enables companies
of all sizes to laminate their own glass safely, consistently and
VOC-free using low-intensity ultraviolet (UV) light for fast curing.
The UVEKOL A interlayer produces glass laminates that are transparent
and clear, and have excellent acoustic performance, according to
Like the other UVEKOL® glass laminating products for safety, hurricane
protection and security, UVEKOL A typically cures in about 20 minutes,
with no additional processing required. The company says that the
UVEKOL A glass lamination process also has significantly lower start-up
and operating costs, reduced cycle time, and less waste compared
with the traditional PVB lamination process.
"UVEKOL A meets a real need in the Americas for designing and constructing
aesthetically-pleasing, durable and quiet buildings using green
technology," said Jeff Rodrigues, Cytec's market manager for RADCURE™
Industrial Coatings in the Americas.
"On the other side of the coin," he added, "UVEKOL A helps our
customers to better produce and supply top-quality acoustical glass
laminates, at a very competitive cost."
