Solutia to expand PVB interlayer capacity in South America

The aim is to better supply the region's architectural and automotive glass markets. According to Solutia, especially Brazil and Argentina are rapidly expanding markets for the key automotive and construction industries. Saflex interlayers are found in nearly 40 % of laminated architectural and automotive glass worldwide, and are also used to encapsulate thin film photovoltaic solar cells, says the company. Solutia currently has six manufacturing sites worldwide that produce Saflex PVB interlayers and encapsulants, including a facility in San Jose dos Campos, Brazil.
