Bullet Resistant glass is also called “Bullet Proof Glass", “Transparent Armor”, “Bullet-Resistant Glass” or "Ballistic Glass". It is achieved through the multiple layering of laminated glass. Laminated glass is basically two or more sheets of glass, bonded together by a polycarbonate material, viz. Polyvinyl Butyrol (PVB). The PVB interlayer helps to sustain a bullet's blow and slows down its penetration. PVB adds another element of safety by maintaining the structural integrity of the glass construction.
Mostly Ballistic glass finds application in safety and security areas. The glazing systems that use SKTuff Ballistic Glass helps in improving design of facilities as well as reduce physical damage and human injury possibilities that can result from accidents, criminal acts and terrorist attacks.
