UV Bonding glass is a very specialized process that needs to be completed in a 'clean room' environment by specialists who have been trained in the bonding of glass. Bear Glass NJ employees have worked closely with Bohle America, the world leader from Germany in glass bonding materials, to become certified UV bonders. Our employees have attended special seminars by Bohle to become proficient at UV bonding glass to glass and glass to metal. For years Bear Glass NJ has been a prominent leader in providing UV bonded cases for retail environments, airports, office applications and more.
The process of UV Bonding uses specialist adhesive cured by ultra violet (UV) light. This is a relatively new process that gives the opportunity to create a stunning look to many applications.
The finished bond is crystal clear without any of the normal silicone lines along the joints. Depending on the type of adhesive we use, the finished joints can be very hard or if needed elastic. The special advantage of these adhesives is their clean application as well as high stability.
Common applications for UV bonding include: glass furniture, glass shelving attached to mirrors and splashback panels, display cases and glass boxes etc.
