About Glass Lamination Interlayer Films

SWM is a global leader in Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) interlayer film solutions. Our diverse Argotec™ interlayer film product line is custom engineered to offer precision extrusions for a variety of glass lamination applications. SWM films are unmatched in optical clarity, hot and cold characteristics and offer the best overall quality in the glass lamination industry. Our unparalleled quality and performance is recognized in the industry. You can find Argotec on the Safety Glazing Certification Council’s (SGCC) Approved Interlayers List.

 

Experience:

  • SWM has the cleanest, most modern interlayer film extrusion operation in North America, Europe and Asia and extrudes over 50% of the world’s total usage of TPU interlayers.
  • Our Argotec film products, available in aliphatic TPU and EVA resins, are the highest quality in the industry and built upon the Argotec brand dating back to 1988 and acquired by SWM in 2015.

Quality:

  • To ensure quality, we use digital camera inspection on all interlayer film production.
  • Computerized systems can detect and document pin holes, voids, gels, wrinkles, streaks and dark or light contaminants as small as 0.3 mm.
  • All of our interlayer extruders are housed in an atmospherically controlled hard walled white room.
  • Each extrusion line is in its own ISO Class 7, soft walled clean room.

Product Superiority:

  • Engineers know that the highest quality standards are found in the aerospace industry.
  • The vast majority of all TPU bonded aircraft canopies and windows are laminated using Argotec interlayer film.
  • Our products do not require refrigerated storage and do not contain plasticizers that can migrate and degrade a composite structure.

As the dependable choice for glass lamination interlayer film, SWM is the leading manufacturer of extruded thermoplastic polyurethane optical interlayer films around the world. The clear choice for optical interlayer films, SWM Argotec TPU and EVA glass lamination films provide unmatched optical clarity, lay flat, and overall consistent quality. Known for its extrusion expertise and quality, SWM produces the cleanest, most optically clear films on the market and is the industry leader in TPU interlayer film technology.

 

SWM thermoplastic polyurethane TPU optical interlayer films are used for laminating glass-to-glass and glass-to-polycarbonate applications. SWM glass lamination films are used in numerous commercial and military bullet-, blast-, impact-, and hurricane- resistant glass composites. To ensure consistent quality, the extrusion lines are located inside a clean room with digital camera inspection and gauge control on all its interlayer film production lines. Designed for ease of use, the interlayer films are available in widths to match the lamination process. The glass lamination films are engineered to work correctly in the laminator's equipment, whether autoclaves, nip rolls, or bladder presses. They lay up well, are not tacky, and laminate with minimal voids.

Clean and Clear Glass Lamination

EVA optical interlayer film is used to laminate switchable glass composites. These dynamic, smart composites function as dimmable or decorative glass to provide on-off privacy in highly visible architectural glass-walled or glass-windowed applications where visual isolation is the desired design element.
