Impact Resistant Film For Improving Glazing Security

Huntsman Polyurethanes : 12 October, 2010  (New Product)
Krystalflex PE505 polyurethane film has been developed by Huntsman for the protection of critical buildings and airport premises through the provision of impact protection for windows
Impact Resistant Film For Improving Glazing Security
Huntsman Polyurethanes has developed a brand new, impact resistant thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film which can improve the security of glass employed at airports, banks and government buildings.

Krystalflex PE505 is an extremely tough, yet highly flexible, optical aliphatic TPU film that offers superior penetration resistance as well as excellent transparency and enhanced UV stability. With high hardness, medium modulus and the ability to perform exceptionally well at both high and low temperatures, Krystalflex PE505 enables the production of thin, lightweight glazing systems that offer improved anti-blast properties and ballistic protection. As such, this technical interlayer is being targeted for use in general security and intrusion resistant glazing projects as well as military vehicle and commercial aerospace and rail applications.

Krystalflex PE505 is the latest innovation to emerge from Huntsman's global TPU research and development center in Derry, New Hampshire, USA. It extends the company's film technology platform, already the broadest of its kind in the glazing and glass lamination sector.

Marco Zajac, Huntsman Polyurethanes Product Manager Krystalflex in Europe said: "While the basic chemistry of our TPU films has remained largely the same for many years, we have intensified our research and development programme to create innovative new products like Krystalflex PE505. The result is a portfolio of premium glazing films, built on solid scientific understanding, that enables us to meet modern glazing demands. Krystalflex PE505 is a unique new interlayer from Huntsman that provides superior impact performance at any temperature."

Like other TPU films available from Huntsman, Krystalflex PE505 can be produced at varying degrees of thickness to meet exact performance traits - a significant advantage for customers who want custom made solutions that offer superior performance. The film also comes with the added benefit of in-depth technical support. Huntsman is one of the only suppliers to the glass lamination sector to have experts readily available to answer customers' product and application specific questions. Helping manufacturers overcome design and production challenges, these individuals work closely with Huntsman's local sales staff in a support network that spans the globe.
