Who is GLAAST?

GLAAST GmbH was founded in early 2018 in Bensheim, Germany.

The name GLAAST stands for
GLASS LAMINATION – ALLIANCE – APPLICATIONS – SPECIALIST TECHNOLOGY.

The name is new in the market, but we are not!

GLAAST is an association of former key technical employees and partners of the company Bridgestone, which was present on the EVA market for laminated glass and photovoltaics for over 30 years.

GLAAST’s mission is to continue & then expand the tradition of unique Japanese developed EVA based lamination films for glass lamination.  

This via the application of special ‘calendared‘ production and design techniques to offer significantly higher performance than other generic and normally ‘extruded‘ forms of EVAs – and also PVBs – as well as in some key areas Ionomers.  

GLAAST has created a new specialist material partnership – which can produce to Glaast’s design and philosophy in large capacities in both Europe and Asia.

GLAAST products already offer highest in market performance matrices for the applications being addressed.

GLAAST also continues to offer special products made of EVA and POE for encapsulation in solar modules in photovoltaics.

FIRST CLASS – IN GLAAST


Glaast’s Unique Technical Experience & Competence

Key Features

Glaast EVA-based lamination films are Specifically Designed’ by experienced material, structural and application engineers especially for ‘Glass Lamination’!

Glaast products are primarily based on Japanese developed ‘Calendared’ methodology & design principles.  This technology enables completely ‘Unique Forms’ of EVA film which makes for fundamental differences relative to the usual ‘Generic, Extruded & Thermoplastic’ competitor material.

Glaast material & production technology enables:

  • Ultra high-density and strength materials & highly productively,
  • Highest setting capability => cross-linking in speed and absolute quantity of 3D molecular links,
  • Thereby excellent weather & humidity resistance – low ageing deltas,
  • Low Vinyl Acetate (VA content) = low levels of acetic acid by-products,
  • Balanced material flow properties (low edge stress & cleaning),
  • Simple additive possibilities (including best UV blocking agents!),
  • Exceptional optical clarity / cleanliness,
  • Fastest laminating speed possibilities (subject to hardware),
  • Superb adhesion + cohesion + other physical property balances,
  • Low material degradation (excellent storage / handling stabilities),
  • Non-hazardous material design and control.

The ‘Key Quality and Performance Advantages’ in glass lamination which the above material properties offer, enables Glaast’s products to be used in ‘External, Structural, Technical, Bent (incl. Cold Bent), Large Size, Electrical, Safety, Security, Fire, Acoustic, General Indoor, Decorative’ applications, etc.

Complete versatility with highest performance, reliability and safety!

Moreover and very importantly, Glaast offers uniquely competent, data and calculation based ‘Package Solutions’ including technical support, services, associated products and technologies.
