PPG Glass Education Center Video Focuses on Bent, Laminated Glass
PPG has posted a new video to the online PPG Glass Education Center.
PPG has posted a new video to the online PPG Glass Education Center demonstrating how bent and laminated glasses are manufactured. The 3½-minute video, which was filmed at Standard Bent Glass in East Butler, Pa., presents step-by-step how finished flat glass is transformed into bent glass, from initial cutting and washing to shaping in the hearth, temperature and pressure treatment in the autoclave, and final quality check. The video also chronicles the parallel process for laminated glass, including application and sealing of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers between multiple lites of glass.
Launched in 2013, the PPG Glass Education Center is a growing online library of technical information that serves as an objective, user-focused resource about designing, specifying, and building with glass for architects, specifiers, students, and professionals in the glass, construction, and building industries.
