The Profilon® films and laminates are manufactured by Haverkamp GmbH in Germany since 1978 and distinguish themselves from the rest of retrofit protective films for glass
in that they are manufactured in a proprietary “sandglider cold lamination” process called cold lamination to form an optically precise and clear product based on the same principle as plywood.
In addition to this process, additional strength is added by using a non hardening proprietary adhesive to bond the material layers together and the same adhesive coating, which is also 2 to 3 times thicker than conventional adhesives, is used to create a molecular bond with the glass. This helps to create a shock absorbing effect on the glass and thus creates phenomenal and proven resistance to breaking and penetration as it more aggressively holds the glass shards together if broken by impact.
