Colored Interlayer

The Colored Interlayer Collection is a series of translucent and transparent colored films laminated between two lites of glass. The collection illustrates many different combinations of textures, colors, translucent finishes and reflective glass types to achieve a multitude of decorative effects.

For a distinctive flair designers can create a double-sided, multi-color installation using colored interlayers. This is achieved by layering one translucent, colored film on one side of a white or black opaque film, another color on the opposite side, and then laminating them together. The black or white interlayer creates a barrier that light will not penetrate, so the light is reflected back through the colored film on that side.

Most commonly used in partition walls, sidelites and doors, wall cladding applications, Colored Interlayers are also popular for canopies and public art.
