Bent Tempered Glass


Bent tempered architectural glass represents the future trend in construction and façade materials, and has seen rapid growth in worldwide demand. In response to an increase in architectural glass applications in sophisticated facades and the need for larger curved glass surfaces, Taiwan Glass has introduced the Rainbowmaker TSF Combi ™ Bending & Tempering System, a horizontal bending and tempering glass processor designed by Glassrobots, Finland. Exceptional technology adjusts the bending radius and control system parameters to achieve cylindrical and curved glass shapes. The glass is heated to the correct temperature in the precisely controlled furnace, which eliminates glass waviness as a result of overheating and ensures an outstanding glass quality.





Benefits

3-5 times harder than ordinary bent glass.
No tong marks on the glass.
Horizontal bending and tempering method ensures stable product quality.
Both sides of the curved glass surfaces can achieve outstanding quality.
Exceptional optical quality is especially prominent in bent tempered reflective glass.
