D Boy,

Quick recommendations for you:

1. Before you bed the panes, take the extra time to seal the edges of the laminated glass with a couple of coats of epoxy. This will add another layer of protection from water getting between the layers and delaminating the glass (which leads to the cloudiness.)

2. Choose your bedding compound carefully. Although the glass should be impervious, some sealants will attack the adhesives used to laminate the glass, giving water a runnning start at getting in there. (Hopefully not an issue if you do step 1, but why tempt fate right?)

Hope it all goes well,
