Solutia Inc. is a global manufacturer of performance materials and specialty chemicals including polyvinyl butyral , ethylene vinyl acetate , and thermoplastic polyurethane interlayers for laminated glass, aftermarket window films, protective barrier and conductive films, and rubber processing chemicals, used in architectural, automotive, alternative energy, electronic devices, consumer and industrial applications. In July 2012, the company was acquired by Eastman Chemical Company.Solutia's worldwide headquarters are located in Town and Country, Missouri, USA, with regional headquarters located in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium; São Paulo, Brazil; and Shanghai, China.Solutia is currently known as the world's leading manufacturer of PVB, EVA, and TPU interlayers, custom-coated window and performance films, and chemicals for the rubber industry. In 2009, the company completed the sale of its nylon division, with closure of the sale in the second quarter 2009. In 2010, the company purchased Etimex-Solar and Novomatrix, further enhancing its portfolio of interlayer and film products.Solutia was bought by Eastman Chemical Company in 2012 for $4.8 billion.

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.


Processes and systems for making a poly(vinyl acetal) resin particles are provided. The processes and systems described herein utilize one or more methods, including, for example, slurry dilution and/or filtration of various process streams, to optimize the transport and recovery of the poly(vinyl acetal) resin particles. Systems and processes described herein facilitate increased production of the final resin product by minimizing product loss and maximizing on-line operation time and production flexibility.

A tapered interlayer comprising at least one polymer layer and a having tapered zone with an overall wedge angle of not more than 0.85 mrad is provided. The refractive index of the polymer layer is 1.480 or higher. Multiple layer panels formed from such interlayers may exhibit desirable optical properties, including, for example, less image ghosting, when used as part of a heads-up-display (HUD) display panel for use in automotive and aircraft applications.
