Features of Shinko bent glass
- In finishing bent glass, the glass pane is placed on a shaped mould, and then putted into an electric or gas heating furnace to heat the glass to reach softening temperature (580~620℃). After softening, the glass pane is bent by gravity along the mould. After bending, stop heating, and make the glass cool down to eliminate distortion caused by heating.
- Both heating and cooling time is ten minutes, and is gradual. Thus, the products are free of twist or residual stress, and the curved face can be cut.
- Etching of bent glass, and finishing of insulated glass and laminated glass (different shapes may have limitations).
- Our products have been used for many famous buildings throughout Japan. In addition, they are used for large showcases, front glass of vehicles of JR·privately-operated subway corporation, monuments and glass artworks.
