This European Standard defines the characteristics, properties and classification of adhesive backed polymeric filmed glass, i.e. glass product that has had an adhesive backed polymeric film applied, for use in buildings. The adhesive backed polymeric film is based on biaxially oriented polyester film as defined in
FprEN 15752-1. This applies to both site and factory applications.
This European Standard does not apply to adhesive backed polymeric films manufactured using polyvinylchloride (PVC).
Other requirements, not specified in this standard, may apply to adhesive backed polymeric filmed glass that is incorporated into assemblies, e.g. laminated glass or insulating glass units. The additional requirements are specified in the appropriate product standard. Adhesive backed polymeric filmed glass, in this case, does not lose its mechanical or thermal characteristics.
