Glass is an indispensable material for the implementation of modern designs. Bonding glass is a task that must meet high aesthetic standards regardless of whether one is working with glass tables or shower enclosures. One of the most crucial aspects of glass-to-glass or glass-to-metal bonding is that the used adhesive is permanently transparent and yellowing-resistant.
Light-curing acrylates, such as the glass metal adhesive DELO PHOTOBOND offer a multitude of possibilities in the making of glass furniture or the production of state-of-the-art glass partition systems. The glass bonding adhesive is and remains transparent.
DELO’s glass metal adhesives are great for bonding glass to aluminum or other metals, as they offer significant elasticity in contrast to other bonds. Because of this feature, the adhesive is able to counterbalance the materials’ difference in linear expansion.
Due to its extraordinary long-term stability and humidity resistance, the glass metal adhesive is particularly suitable for use in sanitary facilities. Elaborate climate tests have been carried out in order to confirm that the adhesive meets the relevant requirements. In addition, the adhesive’s long-term translucence transparence and yellowing resistance have been successfully tested in a sun simulator.
