Satinal is proud to announce that STRATO® interlayer is now the first EVA film approved for use in Dade County Florida and meets its toughest standards: STRATO® has passed the weathering and flammability requirements that have been set and mandated by Dade County Florida to allow the sale of the product in the windborne debris zone.
STRATO® is the first and only EVA film which received the Notice of Acceptance (NOA) approval. Before buying a product, glaziers and system designers should check that the interlayer has been truly certified. In this specific case, it is possible to search the Miami Dade’s database for products, certificates and listings that have been approved complying with the Florida Building Code, including the High Velocity Hurricane Zone.
The sample of laminated glass (33.1) with STRATO® EVA interlayer successfully passed the following tests:
- ASTM G155-13 | Xenon weathering
- ASTM D638-14 | Tensile strength
- ASTM D1929-10 | Self ignition temperature
- ASTM D2843-10 | Average Smoke density
- ASTM D635-10 | Average liner burning rate – Average extent of burning – Average smoke density
Damage to glazing systems can be prevented, or at least minimized, by using glazing that have been designed to resist wind and windborne debris forces specified in the building code. Impact-resistant systems provide protection through the use of laminated glass with STRATO® EVA interlayer. As a result, architects now have the option of using an advanced high-quality glazing system in hurricane applications or other areas (interior or exterior).
Satinal continues to invest in quality in order to offer the market a product that can be safely used in a variety of applications and in compliance with the different building codes: STRATO® is now certified according to European (UNI EN ISO), American (SGCC – ANSI) and Miami Dade (ASTM) standards.
