Structural Adhesives for Frame to Glass bonding
The use of glass as a reinforcing element in window construction with excellent bonding techniques is based on our 30 years experience in the vehicle and façade market. The principle is based on elastic but structural bonding between a frame and the relatively rigid glass. The frame can be made of different materials such as metal, plastic, wood or a combination of materials.
Be it glass, PVC, metal, wood or new material combinations - Sika structural adhesives and sealants bond the materials into a single unit.
When stiffening the frame with the help of the glass unit, the frame can be built relatively light-weight, resulting in a significant saving of material. The bonding also opens new possibilities in the design of the frame. This allows windows to be manufactured that are not possible on such a scale in terms of frame slimness and full glass aspect.
