SATINAL: The Italian ecosystem for safety glass manufacture

Innovation, technological research, high-performance polymeric interlayers, Industry 4.0 machinery for the glass industry. These are just some of the important features of SATINAL, set up thanks to the long tradition of its founders – the Bresciani family – in the glass sector. The company operates internationally in over 60 countries, constantly searching for the highest performance of all its products.

Innovative solutions and 360° support for customers are a fundamental part of the work that SATINAL carried out each and every day, at global level. The company provides the worldwide glass market with the widest range of EVA films for safety glass in interior and exterior projects, encapsulating films for the photovoltaic industry and high-quality machinery specially designed for customers, with assistance and constant advice over time.

MULTI-BRAND ARCHITECTURE
SATINAL features a multi-brand architecture, which encompasses a range of products and machinery for the glass industry worldwide:

  • TK – Engineering and manufacturing of glass processing machinery (lamination, tempering, chemical tempering, heat soak testing);
  • STRATO® – Manufacturing of polymeric interlayers for glass lamination/encapsulation;
  • SATINAL – Production of chemicals and machinery for glass frosting and acid-etching.

S-LAB is SATINAL’s in-house R&D Laboratory, where new products are developed and tested. The company technical staff focus on providing complete technical assistance and consulting services all over the world.

STRATO®: THE FIRST MADE IN ITALY EVA GLASS INTERLAYER
STRATO® is the first ever EVA glass interlayer ‘Made in Italy’. SATINAL’s proprietary and innovative EVA interlayers are processed from the granular raw material into a cast film that is then used to manufacture laminated safety glass.
The STRATO® production site is the first ever located in Italy and ensures the high standards required by a premium-quality product.
SATINAL operates two branches in North and South America in order to provide a close customer service in international markets.
Being a cross-linking material, STRATO® can be used for laminating safety glass for both architectural and interior design applications without running the risk of de-lamination and yellowing over time.
Particular attention is paid to customer service intended primarily as research: the SATINAL laboratory not only formulates increasingly advanced interlayers in performance, but is at the service of customers to perform tests on request and to offer their advice.
The application of EVA film is, in fact, a sensitive process that requires precise temperatures and cycle times. The quality controls carried out in-house are meant to ensure the perfect adhesion of the material with the glass surface.
SATINAL’s in-depth expertise acquired in treating EVA-based materials is essential to master all their potential applications and thoroughly exploit the advantages they offer.
STRATO® EVA film is a thermosetting material, and is significantly different from PVB film (Polyvinyl butyral), which is a thermoplastic material. STRATO® EVA film creates three-dimensional bonds at molecular level during the lamination process. The interlayer is not sensitive to humidity or water, and therefore does not need to be stored in controlled humidity and temperature conditions.
