Patent
Solutia Inc. | Date: 2017-01-27

An interlayer comprised of a high flow, low molecular weight thermoplastic resin, and at least one plasticizer is disclosed. The use of a high flow, low molecular weight thermoplastic resin, and a plasticizer creates synergy allowing the flow of the interlayer to be increased without sacrificing other characteristics typically associated with an increased flow (e.g., increased blocking, decreased mechanical strength, and decreased manufacturing capability). In this regard, the high flow, low molecular weight thermoplastic resin provides a flow improvement, resulting in a high flow interlayer. As a result, a thinner interlayer can be utilized in forming multiple layer panels because the resulting thinner interlayer has improved flow properties.

Multilayered interlayers comprising stiff skin layers and a soft core layer(s) are disclosed. The multilayered interlayers comprise: a first polymer layer (skin layer) comprising plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resin; a second polymer layer (core layer) comprising a blend of two or more plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resins having different residual hydroxyl content wherein the plasticizer is a high refractive index plasticizer having a refractive index of at least about 1.460; and optionally, a third polymer layer (skin layer) comprising plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resin.

Multilayered interlayers comprising stiff skin or outer layers and a soft core layer(s) are disclosed. The multilayered interlayers comprise: a first polymer layer (skin layer) comprising plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resin; a second polymer layer (core layer) comprising a blend of two (or more) plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resins having different residual hydroxyl content; and optionally a third polymer layer (skin layer) comprising plasticized polyvinyl butyral) resin.


Resin compositions, layers, and interlayers comprising two or more thermoplastic polymers and at least one RI balancing agent for adjusting the refractive index of at least one of the resins or layers is provided. Such compositions, layers, and interlayers exhibit enhanced optical properties while retaining other properties, such as impact resistance and acoustic performance.

An interlayer comprised of a thermoplastic resin, at least one high refractive index plasticizer and, optionally, a conventional plasticizer. The use of a thermoplastic resin, a high refractive index plasticizer, and, optionally, a conventional plasticizer reduces or minimizes the optical defects caused by different refractive indices without sacrificing other characteristics of the interlayer.


Patent
Solutia Inc. | Date: 2017-06-28

An interlayer comprised of a thermoplastic resin and at least one special effect metal pigment. The use of a thermoplastic resin and at least one special effect metal pigment provides a special effect metal appearance without sacrificing other characteristics of the interlayer, and wherein the color of the interlayer measured in reflectance mode is different from the color measured in transmission mode.


Patent
Solutia Inc. | Date: 2017-01-17

A high frequency semi-isotropic embossed polymer interlayer sheet is disclosed. The embossed polymer interlayer sheet has a first side; a second side opposing the first side; and an embossed surface on at least one of the sides, and a surface texture ratio, Str, (as measured per ISO 25178) of between 0.1 and 0.99. The embossed polymer sheet may have at least 50 roughness peaks per centimeter (R PC, as measured per ASME B46.1 (1985)). The embossed polymer sheet may have a mottle value of less than or equal to 2.5 (as measured by a Clear Mottle Analyzer (CMA)). The embossed polymer sheet may be polyvinyl butyral.
