Glass Bonding

Glass Bonding from Osborn Glass

Glass edges and surfaces may be bonded (in effect, glued) together with a transparent adhesive, which is set (cured) by exposing to ultra violet light, hence the term UV glass bonding.  Metal fittings may also be bonded to glass.  Typically glass shelving units and furniture are produced in this way, although there are certain limitation so far as weight bearing etc. is concerned.

Our UV bonding facilities enable us to join all kinds of glass and mirrors in a clear and seamless fashion, without an obvious glue-line. This enables us to fix shelves to mirrors, splash backs, shower enclosure etc. and to produce glass containers, furniture, art works etc. We also produce showcases, bookcases, display aids and serving displays.

Use of low iron glass in bonding projects reduces the green tint in regular float glass which is particularly apparent when the edges are seen, so the edges and lines appear much clearer.

  •   Production of glass showcase using UV bonding technique. Adhesive, which sets (cures) with ultra violet light is run into the joints to be bonded. (see image below)
  •   Special suction-cup clamps are used to hold the glass panels of the showcase (usually in toughened glass with polished edges) in position. (see image below)
  •   Application of adhesive, the adhesive is quite invisible. (see image below)
