First introduced in 1998 as SentryGlas® Plus (SGP) based on the ionoplast technology, this film is widely used in laminated glass façades, skylights, canopies, glass railings and glass walkways. Exceptionally robust and with unparalleled clarity, the film exhibits the lowest yellowness index of any laminated glass interlayer. It is 100 times stiffer and five times more tear resistant than PVB and, in addition, exhibits the highest post-breakage strength over a broad range of temperatures and loads. In 1992, the SentryGlas® team began testing glazing systems to meet impact and pressure cycling requirements developed for wind-borne debris protection in Florida.
