What is the most suitable safety glass in interior design?
Our STRATO® CLEAR product range.
STRATO® EXTRA CHIARO can be safely applied in interior design, inside buildings as well as in outdoor areas exposed to weathering conditions.
Thanks to its outstanding clarity STRATO® EXTRA CHIARO allows a very high light transmission but on the other hand it also offers a full protection against UV radiations. Filtering more than 99% of UV rays, it avoids the fading of interior furnishings. It is specifically formulated to provide exceptional durability when exposed to weathering conditions.
STRATO® PLUS is the non plus ultra of the EVA films for the architectural glass market.
It provides a completely natural and neutral-looking glass thanks to its high degree of transparency and UV protection.
It has a higher degree of fluidity and elasticity compared to STRATO® EXTRA CHIARO: this allows the customers to laminate special inserts such as LCD (Smart Glass), PET or fabrics without problems of distortions or air bubbles ensuring, at the same time, the highest degree of transparency even with low temperature lamination. STRATO® is certified according to European (UNI EN ISO) and American (SGGC – ANSI – Miami Dade) standards. STRATO® Plus is delivered in rolls up to a width of 2600 mm

What are exterior end-use application of STRATO® EVA interlayers?
Laminated glass with STRATO® EVA is ideal for external applications. STRATO EVA interlayers—when properly laminated and installed—are certified to resist against humidity and water, UV radiation and any kind of weathering agent
Our EVA interlayers suit various outdoor end applications:
Storefront or commercial window
Street furniture and exterior structures
Meeting building codes and providing strength, sound reduction, solar control, visual beauty, and impact resistance for safety, security, and post-breakage performance are all attainable with laminated glass when using proper design. The multifunctional capabilities of STRATO interlayers can help meet changing guidelines and building safety codes.
In several years, laminated glass for impact resistance has demonstrated its protection capability. Now, thanks to STRATO interlayers, coupling that capability with sound control, color options, solar control enhancements, and security performance in a multifunctional glazing is not just easy to do—it’s a required option.
Do the STRATO® EVA interlayers meet the EN 16612: 2019 and 16613: 2019 standards?
In December 2019, standards EN 16612 and EN 16613 were designed and published and they are closely related to each other: in fact, the first one determines the resistance of glass panes to lateral loads by calculation, while the second one specifies the mechanical properties of the interlayer used to make laminated safety glass.
These standards have been under construction for years and their issue finally formalizes the importance of the choice of the interlayer for the design of architectural elements. Therefore, they will replace or complete the individual regulations in the different European Union countries.
Selecting the type of film to be used is a very important decision: it determines the behaviour of laminated glass, whose properties depend on the temperature and the loads to which it is subjected.
Many samples been tested in an independent certified laboratory in accordance with the configuration provided by ISO EN1288-3:2016 (4-point bending test), in order to define the characteristics of STRATO® EVA film. Tests were carried out with the aim of calculating the values of the Young Modulus and the Shear Modulus which express the behavior of the laminated glass under different types of loads and which determine the stiffness family (type 0.1.2) of the interlayer per load condition.
Following there are some conditions listed in EN 16613: wind gust load, wind storm load, balustrade loads, climatic loads on insulating glass units etc.
STRATO® is certified according to European (UNI EN ISO) and American (SGGC – ANSI – Miami Dade) standards.
An important goal for Satinal is the achievement of ISO 9001 certification which demonstrates its commitment to constantly guaranteeing the highest quality products on the market. Satinal started all the activities of standardization and finalisation of the in-house production processes, with the aim of achieving the ISO 9001 certification.
Satinal collects a sample of each item produced and delivered to customers in order to promptly check any problems encountered by the end user. This allows to make double quality checks and to establish the true causes of post-laminating problems should they occur. Furthermore, the strict quality controls during the production process ensure the provision of high-quality products in compliance with the standards required.
As a thermoset material, different from other thermoplastic interlayers available on the market, the chemical composition of the cross-linking EVA film allows the internal molecules to generate strong three-dimensional connections, thus ensuring an additional degree of protection for all architectural elements exposed to exceptional conditions, such as high temperatures, high humidity and extreme weathering conditions.
High moisture resistance: EVA is more resistant to moisture than PVB at open edge. PVB suffers a high degree of delamination at open edge
Good sound insulation performance particularly in the higher frequency range compared with PVB. Given its high degree of soundproofing this is the ideal product for noisy areas.
High UV filtering: the 99% of UV filtering at 380nm wavelength is an indication of its suitability to protect from sun beams.
Lower processing costs: EVA laminated glass can be produced in convection (e.g. Lamijet Convection) or infrared lamination furnaces (e.g. Lamijet 04-2c); these furnaces are small and accessible to small and medium-sized enterprises. Processing with PVB film requires a special temperature-controlled chamber and the glass must then be processed in an autoclave, an expensive and large machine suitable for companies with large volumes.
Cross-linking rate > 94% (test result on STRATO® EXTRA CHIARO): EVA is thermally and mechanically stable, making it a material with a durability and stability well over any thermoplastic.
3D Reticulation: can also reduce the number of layers in a tempered glass reaching a 50% reduction in manufacturing costs Vs an Autoclave.
Excellent compatibility with various insert media and easy lamination process with a wide variety of glass such as figured glass, tempered glass, curved glass, etc. as well as with inserted materials like fabrics, wood, perforated sheet metal and others
Good adhesion, strength, stability and physical properties to various kinds of substrates ranging from glass, metals to plastic films, etc.
Excellent durability against heat, moisture, UV, etc.
EVA is hydrophobic, has a three-dimensional cross-linked structure
It displays high long-term reliability also under severe conditions in outdoor uses
Easy handling, processing, high productivity and reliability
Good impact resistance over a wide temperature range /humidity /UV/ aging
Excellent durability and stable optical performance
