The Vanceva Color Interlayer System offers architects and designers unparalleled creative freedom to incorporate color into glass and glazing systems using tinted interlayers, which are laminated between two pieces of glass. A palette of 16 colors can be combined in up to four layers to produce more than 17,000 transparent, translucent and solid glass colors. This gives designers unmatched flexibility to create custom colors and one-of-a-kind aesthetics. Vanceva color interlayers also offer all the benefits of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers for laminated safety glass, including security, solar control, sound insulation, and UV protection.
The Vanceva World of Color Awards competition is an international recognition program open to all industry professionals. All entries must include liberal use of Vanceva color interlayer products, including Vanceva Colors, Earth Tones, and the White Collection.
