UV Glass Bonding

Osborn Glass > Osborn Product Range > UV Glass Bonding

If you’re trying to achieve a unique display in your home, whether that be a mirror with accompanying shelf design or a series of glass containers, the glass will need to be bonded. Whatever ideas you have, we can help you achieve them.

We’ll bond your glass design flawlessly and bring your idea to life. 

What Is Glass Bonding?

It is the joining of glass edges and surfaces glued together with a transparent adhesive, which sets (or cures) by exposure to ultraviolet light. The sequence is where the term UV glass bonding comes from; it is also possible to bond metal fittings to glass. 

Typically, shelving units and furniture are produced in this way, although there are certain limitations so far as weight bearing is concerned.

What You Can Achieve 

Our UV bonding facilities enable us to join all kinds of glass and mirrors clearly and seamlessly, without an obvious glue-line. We can: fix shelves to mirrors, splashbacks, a shower enclosure and more. Also, we can produce: 

  • glass containers, 
  • furniture, 
  • artworks,
  • showcases, 
  • bookcases, 
  • display aids, and 
  • serving displays.

We Use Low Iron Glass In Bonding Projects to Reduce Green Tint

When you see the edges of bonded glass, they can appear green if the low iron-type glass isn’t used. This tint can add an aged effect which you might like, however, if you don’t, and you want a clean finish, we can happily provide. 

The Production of Glass Showcase Using The UV bonding Technique.

  • The adhesive, which sets (cures) with ultraviolet light, is run into the joints to be bonded. 
  • We use suction-cup clamps to hold the glass panels of the showcase (usually in toughened glass with polished edges) in position. 
  • Finally, we apply the adhesive, which is entirely invisible.
