Cuttingis the first stage of glass processing. It may be manual or automatic depending on the specifics of the cutting.
Beveling is a process in which the flanges of the glass or mirror are being one-side beveled. It looks like a natural frame of the glass or mirror. There is single and double beveling. Beveling process can be executed on both straight lined or irregular shaped glass.
Edging is a process, which removes the sharp cutting edges and the inner pressure of the glass. A variety of shapes (edges) of the side surfaces of the glass sheet can be achieved by edging. The edges can also be sandblasted, grinded and polished. The types of edges that we can process are: Standard (FA edge), C edge, OG edge
Sandblasting is a process in which, as a result of chemical or mechanical processing, the glass acquires a milky white semi-transparent (translucent) color. This type of glass processing may be followed by fixing, which is done with a special chemical. The purpose of the fixing is achieving a long-lasting effect and preventing the glass from finger-prints and other marks. Glasstime can sandblast glass sheets entirely, we can also sand blast figures and engravings on the glass. Sandblasting is used in the advertisement for making company logos and for ornaments and patterns on glass.
Glasstime can perform long-term bonding of various materials, such as:
- Glass to glass
- Glass to metal
- Glass to stone
The glass bonding is implemented through the use of special UV adhesives.
Some of the glass details need to be preliminary processed by making holes in the glass in order to be mounted. Cutouts and notches for hinges.
- Cutouts and notches for hinges.
- Internal cutouts.
- Cutouts for glass holders.
- And other.
