Glass triplex
Triplex is a laminated, laminated glass consisting of several layers bonded to each other over the entire surface. As a bonding base and a protective component, a special polymer film is used. Layers can be of the same type (made of glass of the same type) and combined (of glass of various types), as well as straight and bent (the form is provided before gluing).

Basic properties
Shock resistant and scratch-resistant and penetration-resistant, heat and frost-resistant (up to + 60 ° С and -4О ° С, respectively), Fire and moisture resistant, optimal sound insulation performance . When breaking, the fragments of triplex do not fly apart, like in ordinary glass, but remain as if "hanging" on the adhesive film, which makes this glass to a certain degree safe. It has a high degree of transparency and color stability. It is also bulletproof, but the characteristics of this property depend on resistance to various types of weapons, ranging from a Makarov pistol and ending with a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
Technical specifications
They range from a minimum (if a single polymer layer is used) 5mm (2x1x2) to a theoretically unlimited maximum. However, you should be aware that the increase in weight of the structure will occur in proportion to the addition of layers.
Composition, manufacturing technology, types
Usually it consists of a sheet of polished glass, film, or, alternatively, a photoreflecting element. Triplex can be obtained by using filler and film technologies, as well as by vacuum lamination. The main types of laminated glass are ordinary triplex (the glasses are glued together with a special polymer film), decorative triplex (the same glasses, but in addition to the film between them, for example, there can be a fabric with a printed image).
Areas of use
It directly follows from the properties of the triplex, which are mainly of a protective nature. So, it is used to decorate the entrances and lobbies of buildings; in the manufacture of partitions in offices, glass floors, automotive glass and glazing of stairs, balconies, shopping pavilions, schools, gyms, kindergartens; in double-glazed windows on the roofs of buildings, as well as for non-standard designs in bars, shop windows, and wardrobes.
