  • Publication number: 20210059022
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a laminated glass for a vehicle, the laminated glass having an intermediate film between an outer glass plate and an inner glass plate, includes: a test area A defined by JIS Standard R3212; an information transmitting/receiving area in which a device installed in a vehicle transmits and/or receives information; a film capable of heating the information transmitting/receiving area, the film being adhered to an area that is outside of the test area A and overlaps the information transmitting/receiving area in a planar view between the intermediate film and either one of the outer glass plate or the inner glass plate.

  • Publication number: 20200154528
    Abstract: A laminated glass includes a pair of glass plates facing each other, a pair of intermediate adhesive layers positioned between the pair of glass plates and in contact with the respective glass plates, a wiring positioned between the pair of intermediate adhesive layers, and one set of bus bars connected to the wiring. The wiring includes conductive thin wires arranged in parallel with each other between the bus bars. The bus bars are arranged alongside a same edge of the glass plates. In an area corresponding to at least a part of a principal face of the glass plates, the conductive thin wires are arranged as one aggregation and include at least one turnaround. A resistance value of each of the conductive thin wires is within a range of 10% or less with respect to an average value of resistance values of the conductive thin wires.

  • Patent number: 10532636
    Abstract: There is provided a laminated glass for vehicle including a suspended particle device film excellent in property of switching transmittance of light for a long term by suppressing deterioration over time of the suspended particle device film, in particular, deterioration due to intrusion of moisture at an end portion. A laminated glass for vehicle includes: a pair of glass plates opposing each other; a pair of intermediate bonding layers in contact with opposing surfaces of the pair of glass plates respectively; a suspended particle device film arranged in a predetermined region in a region corresponding to a region except at least a part of band-shaped regions of peripheral edge portions of a main surface of the glass plate, between the pair of intermediate bonding layers; and a barrier layer arranged in the band-shaped regions between the pair of intermediate bonding layers and having predetermined adhesiveness and predetermined moisture permeability.

  • Publication number: 20190160920
    Abstract: A laminated glass includes a pair of glass plates opposite each other; a pair of intermediate bonding layers located between the pair of glass plates, each of the intermediate bonding layers contacting a corresponding glass plate of the glass plates; and a base film located between the pair of intermediate bonding layers, and being provided with a wiring in at least a partial area of the base film. A thickness of one of the intermediate bonding layers is thinner than a thickness of another one of the intermediate bonding layers. A thickness of a thinner intermediate bonding layer of the pair of intermediate bonding layers is 0.20 mm or less.
