Insulating glass Glass, invented by Americans in 1865, is a new building material with good heat insulation, sound insulation, beautiful appearance and application, and can reduce the weight of buildings. It is composed of two (or three) tempered glass, with an air layer in the middle, and inert gas can be added. The glass sheet is bonded to the aluminum alloy frame containing desiccant by using high strength and high air tightness composite binder, Made of high-performance sound insulation glass.

Laminated glass is also called laminated glass. It is composed of two or several pieces of float glass sandwiched with strong and tough PVB (ethylene polymer butyrate) film, which is pressed by hot press and discharged as much as possible, and then put into a high-pressure steam kettle to dissolve a small amount of residual air into the film by high temperature and high pressure. Compared with other glass, it has the properties of shock resistance, anti-theft, bulletproof and explosion-proof. Even if it is broken, there is still adhesion of explosion-proof film, which can't fall down and hurt people.

Which is the best choice between laminated glass and insulating glass?

First of all, laminated glass and hollow toughened glass have the effect of sound insulation and heat insulation to a certain extent. However, the laminated glass has excellent seismic resistance and explosion-proof performance, while the hollow tempered glass has better thermal insulation.

In terms of sound insulation, there are different differences between the two. Due to the good seismic performance of laminated glass, when the wind is strong, the possibility of noise caused by its own vibration is small, especially for medium and low frequencies. But when it comes to isolation from external noise, hollow tempered glass has a slight advantage, while laminated glass has more advantages in safety performance. Therefore, according to different places, the glass to be selected is also different. If you live in a high-rise building with strong wind and low noise, laminated glass is also a good choice.

The direct embodiment of the two kinds of glass is the use of sunlight room. In general, the roof of sunshine room is made of laminated double-layer tempered glass. The facade glass of sunshine room uses hollow tempered glass. Because in case of falling objects, the safety of the laminated glass is relatively high and it is not easy to be completely broken. And the facade glass uses hollow tempered glass, in order to achieve better thermal insulation, let the sunshine room warm in winter and cool in summer.

Therefore, we can't say that the double laminated glass and the double-layer insulating tempered glass are better. We can only say that if we apply it better according to the demand, we can give full play to their great advantages. Window glass is to protect the home knight, suitable for their own home is good!
