Acoustical Interlayer from Kuraray Helps to Create Quieter Interior Spaces

Kuraray has introduced Trosifol® Sound Control (SC) interlayer, part of the Trosifol® PVB product line. This monolayer interlayer film product offers exceptional sound attenuation across a wide frequency range. Compared to float glass of the same thickness, laminates made with Trosifol® SC improve sound insulation by up to 5 dB.

     
Acoustical laminates are specified in both exterior windows and doors, as well as interior partitions, to create quieter, and more comfortable, living and working spaces. According to Christoph Troska, Manager, Global Architecture Segment, “The Trosifol® SC interlayer raises the performance of laminated glass beyond that of standard PVBs. The sound transmission rating will increase even further when laminates are incorporated into insulating glass units, which are typically required to meet energy codes.”

Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park utilized the Trosifol® SC interlayer to achieve sound control goals to help minimize noise from a variety of sources in the area, including truck traffic, helicopters flying overhead, and special events held in the adjacent waterfront park.

The Trosifol™ PVB Division of the Kuraray group is a global leader for interlayers for laminated safety glass. In 2014 it merged with DuPont’s Glass Laminating Solutions (GLS) division to a new combined business. Kuraray interlayers provide safety and security by retaining glass particles after breakage. They offer excellent edge stability, high mechanical strength and exception durability. Available from glass fabricators around the world, Trosifol® interlayers are found in both interior and exterior applications, including facades, canopies, balconies, partition walls, furniture, kitchens and floors.
