Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. At least 2 Glass Panels and 1 Binding Agent is necessary to produce Laminated Glass.

Laminated glass is ideal for providing both impact resistance and security since it may break on impact but the glass is held in place thus preventing injury or intrusion. It produced by combining two or more sheets of glass with one or more plastic interlayers.
