Machining is widely used in interior and exterior products.
We have a large range of machines manufactured by leading manufacturers that are required to satisfy and
the most specific requirements of our customers.
Once the glass is cut, its edges remain cut, so the edges must be sanded. This is precisely the function of the edging of the windows and mirrors. GLASS STAR offers edging of straight and non-linear shapes on glass from 3 to 24 mm thick. We also have machines for cutting and edging laminated glass up to 32 mm.
The facet is a technique that is most often applied to mirrors and gives an aesthetic finish. Of course, glass facetting is also not excluded. Generally, the veneer is bevelled and is usually about one or two centimeters, but could be more or less depending on your preference. Here again we can emphasize that no matter what the shape of the glass or mirror you want, GLASS STAR offers you a straight and curved facet.
Depending on the various fastenings, openings, hinges, grips and handles of the glass, a certain opening may need to be made. GLASS STAR can offer holes and openings on the glass with a minimum u = 4mm and no limit on the maximum opening size.
By increasing the durability of glass at times, laminated glass also increases your security. In fact, the laminating process itself is achieved by thermal treatment with special temperature and vacuum conditions that create conditions for the adhesion of two glasses and the thin film between them. Of course, laminating multiple windows is possible and would contribute to even greater security.
TEMPERATURE OF GLASS
Glass heated to a temperature close to its melting point and then subjected to rapid cooling under certain conditions is called tempered glass. The heat treatment process creates an induced stress in the glass, which results in its additional strength, resistance to heat and shock. In this process, the glass is heated to 650 ° C, after which it is cooled by jets of cold air. It is this sharp and prolonged cooling that causes the glass to harden, giving the glass four to five times the strength of ordinary glass. The popular belief that tempered glass is unbreakable or nearly unbreakable is incorrect. However, when broken, hundreds of small pieces without sharp edges are obtained, which, on the one hand, are a guarantee of quality hardening, and on the other, make tempered glass an ideal choice for safe glazing.
Gluing with UV glue
UV bonding is a process that uses special adhesives and ultraviolet lamps in a particular spectrum of rays for long-lasting and reliable bonding. The UV adhesives are completely transparent, which makes them suitable for bonding glass to glass when making glass furniture. It should be known that the surfaces to be glued should be perfectly clean and even, and the metals should be uncoated. Only then can the quality and strength of the adhesive be guaranteed.
