The licensing agreement allows Sharda Glass to produce and distribute high-definition, decorative laminated safety glass.

DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions has licensed its DuPont™ SentryGlas® Expressions™ digital interlayer technology to Sharda Glass, Ltd., West Drayton, UK. The agreement allows Sharda Glass to produce and distribute high-definition, decorative laminated safety glass to meet the growing demand for custom-designed imagery and aesthetics in laminated glass.

Both the printing and the lamination of the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) decorative interlayers will be done in the company’s West Drayton facility.

“In response to growing demand for innovative ways to combine safety and aesthetics in buildings, we are licensing trusted, quality-oriented partners to provide our decorative interlayer technology to architects, designers, builders and contractors,” said Valerie A. Aunet, global marketing manager for DuPont SentryGlas Expressions. “By increasing our collaboration and cooperation with important customers, such as Sharda Glass, we can continue to deliver the high-quality imagery and design textures of SentryGlas Expressions to unique projects around the world.”
