Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the quality requirements for cut sizes of flat laminated glass consisting of two or more lites of glass bonded with an interlayer material for use in building glazing. Depending on the number, thickness and treatment of plies, and the number and thickness of interlayers, the glass shall be laminated for applications including but not limited to safety security, detention, hurricane/cyclic-wind resistance, blast resistant, bullet resistant and sound reduction glazing applications. Furnished laminated flat glass shall be classified to the following kinds: Kind LA; Kind LC; Kind LD; Kind LHS; Kind LM; Kind LP; Kind LR; Kind LSP; Kind LT; Kind LW; and Kind LX. The following test methods shall be performed to meet the specified requirements: impact test for safety glazing; test for missile impact and cyclic pressure; test for security glazing; test for detention glazing; test for bullet resisting glazing; test for burglary resisting glazing; overall bow and warp; and size.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers the quality requirements of flat laminated glass consisting of two or more lites of glass bonded with an interlayer material for use in building glazing.
1.2 Depending on the number, thickness and treatment of lites, and the number and thickness of interlayers, the glass shall be laminated for applications including but not limited to safety security, detention, hurricane/cyclic-wind resistant, blast resistant, bullet resistant and sound reduction glazing applications. Laminated glass used in furniture applications is not included in this specification.
1.3 Optical distortion and the evaluation thereof are not currently within the scope of the standard. Mockups are recommended as a method to evaluate glass. (See Appendix X1.)
1.4 The dimensional values, except thickness designations, stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
