Bent Glass

Bent Laminated
Curved Glass, Bent Glass, Architectural Glass

  • Bent laminated glass is comprised of two or more layers of bent glass combined with polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or urethane interlayers in an autoclave system for material bonding.
  • In addition to safety from injury due to glass breakage, curved laminated glass provides sound transmission control and blocks 99% of the suns ultra violet rays.
  • Curved laminated glass can be combined with all of our decorative laminated glass options with colors, textures, patterns, as well as SentryGlas® Expressions™ digital images.
  • Bent laminated glass is available in multiple combinations as an insulated unit for increased thermal and solar performance.
  • Bent tempered laminated glass can also be provided for structural glazing applications.

Bent Tempered Glass
Curved Glass, Safety Glass, Structural Glazing

Through a manufacturing process of heating, curving, and rapidly cooling the glass, curved tempered glass is 4-5 times stronger than annealed glass and can be used in applications requiring safety glazing as well as structural glazing. Bent Heat-Strengthened glass is also available. Heat strengthened glass is 2 times as strong as annealed glass. While not a safety glazing product, it is used in applications where additional strength is required for load specifications or for applications and glass types that require resistance to thermal absorption.

State-of-the-art technology provides high quality optics with minimal distortion and strict radial tolerances.

Standard Bent Glass is a certified Guardian SunGuard Select Fabricator for high performance coated glass.

Bent tempered glass can be manufactured as a tempered/laminated product, as well as combined in an insulated unit for increased thermal and solar performance.

Applications:

  • Curved Balustrade
  • Spiral Staircases
  • Curtainwall and Storefronts
  • Interior Glazing
  • Structural Glass Wall Systems
  • Display Case and Showcase
  • Shower and Bath Enclosures
  • Skylights and overhead glazing

Direct To Glass Printing
Tempered Glass, Safety Glass, Decorative Glass

Ceramic inks are the only ceramic inks developed specifically for digital inkjet, drop-on-demand printing. A true glass ink - i.e. designed specifically for glass printing - they contain special sub-micron glass particles and inorganic pigments, and are fused into the glass during the tempering or annealing process. This means you can create vivid, durable designs that last as long as the glass itself. You can also use these digital ceramic inks to add functionality to glass, such as for energy efficiency, solar control, and light diffusion and transmission.   

The ideal ink for ceramic printing on glass
Dip-Tech Digital Ceramic Inks were developed along with Dip-Tech Digital In-Glass Printers, ensuring efficient productivity and optimized results.

Key points about Dip-Tech Digital Ceramic Inks:

  • Unmatched resistance to scratching, acid, UV and weather
  • Wide color palette - Based on six colors, mixed digitally or manually - ideal for creative architectural applications
  • Heavy metal-free inks - Do not contain lead cadmium metals
  • Suitable for a range of toughening and firing cycles
  • Compliant with demanding industry standards for quality and durability
