The interlayer film for laminated glass is a resin film that improves all
manners of functions, one function being glass spatter prevention; this
prevention is because the film is sandwiched between two layers of glass.
Sekisui Chemical has seen smooth growth to now hold the world's No. 1 share
(Sekisui Chemical estimate) through development centered on automobiles and
technology to improve the high performance of interlayer film as the S-LEC^TM
brand.

"Cielora^TM" is the world's first (according to Sekisui Chemical research)
interlayer film with excellent designability and milky-white gradation for a
naturally beautiful flow in addition to glass spatter prevention and UV
filtering, which are the basic functions of an interlayer film. There were
major reactions when we exhibited reference samples at Glasstec 2012, which is
the world's largest EU glass exhibition. The world’s first milky-white
gradation interlayer film "Cielora^TM" creates a new interlayer film market in
the construction field by adding the fresh viewpoint of designability.

"Cielora^TM" Features

(1) Safety and Crime Prevention
The product prevents spatter and penetration by flying shards if the glass
breaks, and is also effective in crime prevention.

(2) UV Filtering Performance
The product cuts off over 99% of UV light, which burns skin and causes
interior discoloration and wear.

(3) Designability
The beautiful gradation enables high designability for buildings and presents
spaces with a high degree of freedom.
It also lends the glass the ability to protect privacy through shielding
bothersome lines of sight.
