Discover the possibilities of Vanceva® color by Saflex
The Vanceva® color studio encompasses a wide range of innovative color solutions that enable architects, designers, and engineers to use glass for functions and applications never before thought possible. Vanceva color interlayers are permanently laminated together between two pieces of glass to form a durable, easy to maintain glazing system.
About the Vanceva Color Interlayer Layering System
The Vanceva custom color interlayer system can produce a broad spectrum of colors and moods that are unachievable using stock selections of glass. The color system offers a full range of colors from neutral, soothing pale whites and browns to vibrant, stunning bright purples and oranges in transparent, translucent or opaque color options to help create the perfect tone and intensity in glazing design.

Vanceva interlayer is made with heat- and light-stable pigments instead of dyes to produce colors that resist fading. When subjected to vigorous test conditions, Vanceva interlayer retained its colorfast properties, and all performance properties such as safety, impact, durability andstability. The colors are layered between two pieces of glass, so they are easy to maintain and clean. Vanceva interlayer is available worldwide with easy access to replacement glass.
Saflex maintains a database that cross references Vanceva color interlayer to standard color pallete systems (e.g. Pantone®, RAL®, etc) which can be used as a means of communicating color requirements in lieu of submitting samples.
All users of colors should be aware of the color phenomenon known as metamerism. This is the scientific term that describes why colors often look different when illuminated with different light sources. In any request to match a color, the primary lighting source (incandescent, fluorescent, daylight) at the end use location should be specified so that the color match will be optimal when viewed under the installed lighting conditions.
