The thin, transparent, plastic film which serves as the adhesive between layers of safety glass is substantially hygroscopic. Hygroscopic products are sensitive to high relative humidity rather than absolute humidity, and relative humidity can be high at any time of the year.
If exposed to moisture, the film will boil off in processing, creating steam bubbles which get trapped in laminated glass, causing quality issues and costly product loss. Munters’ desiccant dehumidifiers create low humidity environments for manufacturing, storage and use of this laminating adhesive.
To solve the humidity issue, conditions need to be held at 70°F/21°C at 20-22% relative humidity. A Munters industrial dehumidification system is ideal for glass production, as it can reliably maintain conditions as rigorous as -70°F/-57°C dew point and is available in multiple configurations with capacities up to 100,000 SCFM.
Munters dehumidification systems provide optimal production conditions throughout the year, with minimal scrap and consistent quality.
