This is corroborated by a number of forums that defend this data, and the number of architects beginning to use EVA for their most important projects.
While it is accepted that EVA was an expensive material but with higher quality in terms of moisture resistance, better fluidity for decorative interlayer insertions and higher adhesion, resulting in fewer delamination problems, the fact remains that to start a revolution in the laminate market, Pujol had to develop two points that converged over time, leading to the present success.
On the one hand, a material (Evalam Visual) which provides technical advantages over PVB in terms of transparency, acoustics, delamination, durability and resistance at the same cost as PVB and, on the other hand, a new process with higher production capacity compared to an autoclave, with three-times lower investment and lower production and maintenance costs. All this results in a lower cost per unit output of laminated glass, with the Automatic EVA Fast Curing Plant.

Evalam Visual
Evalam Visual is manufactured in Europe and is the only film that has, so far, been able to obtain values of transparency better than those achieved by PVB with 0.38mm of thickness.
