UV Bonding

UV Bonding

Futureglass designs its products with adhesive joints which offer significant benefits over traditional construction methods. An adhesive joint distributes loads and stresses over the total joint area to give a more even distribution of static and dynamic loads, instead of concentrating these at high-stress points. The adhesive bonded joint is therefore more resistant to flex and vibration than, for example, a bolted joint. 


The UV (Ultra Violet) curing adhesives used by Futureglass are invisible, clean to use and can be used on the UV passing glass to form a permanent and strong bond. Futureglass uses the performance benefits of UV bonding technology to create clean minimal forms for glass-based products.

In particular, UV (Ultra Violet) curing adhesives used by futureglass are invisible, clean to use and can be used on the UV passing glass to form a permanent and strong bond.
