Safety back film also called anti-shatter film is a permanent film laminated at the back of the mirrors or lacquered glass.
It holds together the shattered pieces of mirrors or lacquered glass in case of breakage.

To ensure the users the NOVACEL 9212 safety film is reliable, Novacel has certified through an independent laboratory.
​NOVACEL® 9212 has passed the European norm EN12600 with success.

​​
The EN12600 norm is also called « impact norm ». It is based on a pendulum test.

 

EN12600 norm defines a method to evaluate the resistance to the impact of the flat glass and the way it breaks. Also called « impact test » or « pendulum test ». This resistance is verified by the realisation of a shock simulating a body impact. In the test the body shock weights 50 kg and is simulated by two tyres. The standard requires 3 drop heights and consequently 3 levels of impact.

After the standard test : the glass is given 1 figure and 1 letter and can be classed in 3 categories. ( 1, 2 or 3)

Classification figure :

  • Level  1 : the glass meets the requirements of the test at a drop height of 1 200 mm

  • Level 2 :  the glass meets the requirements of the test at a drop height of 450 mm

  • Level 3 : the glass meets the requirements of the test at a drop height of 190 mm

Classification letter :

  • Class A : The sample is breaking and numerous cracks appear forming numerous shattered pieces with sharp edges.

  • Class B : The sample is breaking and numerous cracks appear but pieces stay together, they do not separate

  • ​Class C : The sample is disintegrating in many non dangerous pieces.

NOVACEL® 9212 is classed in the category 2B2 further to a standard test done by the independent laboratory of the CSTB.
