Solutia Issues 2013 Vanceva® Color Forecast for Architectural Laminated Glass
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Solutia Inc. (NYSE: SOA), a market-leading performance materials and specialty chemicals company, today announced its 2013 Vanceva® color forecast for architectural laminated glass. The 10 unique colors can be achieved by utilizing two or more layers from the Vanceva Color System by Saflex(TM) line of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers for laminated glass.
No longer reserved for paint and wall coverings, Architects and Designers continue to push the envelope, developing innovative color design methods for every glazing application. When exploring light, form, and space in the design process, glass can be the answer for all three considerations with the addition of Vanceva Color System by Saflex. Now airports, living rooms, and urban facades can showcase color in the glazing design.
“No other interlayer brand delivers the complete spectrum of colors for laminated glass like Vanceva Color System by Saflex,” said Julie Schimmelpenningh, global architectural applications manager for Saflex. “Used in curtain walls, atriums, skylights, partitions and conference rooms, Vanceva color interlayers allow the most expressive designs with distinctive hues from the subtle to the dramatic.”
Producing a broad spectrum of colors and moods that are unachievable using stock selections of glass, Vanceva Color System by Saflex gives architects and designers more creative freedom with glass than ever before. Vanceva color interlayers can be combined to produce more than three thousand transparent, translucent or opaque color options to help create the desired tone and intensity. When Vanceva color interlayers are combined with tinted or reflective glass, the design possibilities are nearly limitless.
