Bending

Glass bending is performed under high temperatures. The glass plate is evenly heated and then shaped using a press/bending procedure or a sagging process combined with a bending tool. A range of different forms are available, also in combination with thermal toughening (bending+toughening).

SolGel-coated glass from SCHOTT is highly versatile for shaping and, in contrast to sputtered products, can achieve shorter bend radii and therefore better performance.
