Crown Operations International, LLC has specialized in converting and laminating interlayers for the automotive and architectural laminated glass markets for over 25 years. This expertise has proven very beneficial to glass fabricators seeking to add value to and/or tailor interlayers to their specific interests.
Crown’s converting activity primarily involves tolling for Saflex® and XIR® laminated interlayers, and for Heat Mirror® films, though other work has been and may be considered.
Crown has a great deal of experience with laminated interlayers – involving XIR films, Saflex PVB, and other customer-provided materials – in a variety of multi-layer configurations. Once again, working with other Eastman teams, Crown is generally able to tailor these assemblies to specific, customer functions and performance needs.
