DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions has licensed its DuPont™ SentryGlas® Expressions™ digital interlayer technology to Sharda Glass, Ltd. located in West Drayton, United Kingdom. Established in 2006 by Neil Sharda, Sharda Glass is a UK-based company specializing in the production of high performance structural and architectural glass products.
The agreement allows Sharda Glass to produce and distribute high-definition, decorative laminated safety glass to meet growing demand for custom designed imagery and aesthetics in laminated glass.
Sharda Glass, Ltd. was chosen by DuPont Glass Laminating Solutions to help expand the use of SentryGlas® Expressions™ through its decorative market access and its reputation for high-quality laminating. Both the printing and the lamination of the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) decorative interlayers will be done in their West Drayton facility, providing a faster, efficient response to customer needs.
Sharda Glass, Ltd. is the first licensee in the United Kingdom offering SentryGlas® Expressions™; they are accepting commercial project orders immediately.
"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."
