About DuPont™ SentryGlas® Expressions™:
SentryGlas® ExpressionsÔ is a revolutionary new way for designers and artists to harness digital technologies to produce a wide range of decorative glass results. The technology uses a proprietary process developed by DuPont that performs printing directly onto the plastic interlayer for laminated safety glass.
Whether the laminated glass is used for self-standing internal walls, partitions and doors, stairway balustrades, tabletops, elevators, windows or entire external building facades, it always adds a flare to any space. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the many benefits of the laminated glass include safety, security, excellent outdoor weatherability, protection from UV rays, noise reduction and solar/thermal control results.
