Curved glazing

Curved glass is made by gradually heating flat glass to above its softening point and letting it mould itself, by gravity, to a concave or convex mould positioned horizontally in a bending oven.

Once the shaping process is finished, the curved glazing is cooled at a controlled rate to produce a finished product free of internal stress.

Bending technology can be applied to the following glass: clear glass, body-tinted coloured glass, pyrolytic-coated glass (Stopray Smart, Stopsol and Sunergy). Curved glazing can also be used in laminated glass, screen-printed and sandblasted assemblies.
