The use of renewable energies will play a role at “glasstec 2020” as well as at its special show “glass technology live” held in Düsseldorf from 20 to 23 October 2020.
When we speak about technological progress in mechanical engineering in general terms, conversations often revolve around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG) is a unique thermally insulating window technology that can provide significant advantages over the conventional insulating units.
The Vacuum Insulating Glazing (VIG) is a highly thermally insulating window technology that outperforms existing insulating technologies.
The combination of the double-skin concept with unitized systems made current typologies of double glazed units possible.
The need for higher transparency in façades has led to the development of jumbosized glass. Until now, the almost jointless appearance of large-scale glazing could only be reached with laminated safety glass.
The use of laminated glass in structural applications has become more recognized and preferred as a safer choice to monolithic tempered or heat strengthen glass.
It is well known that laminated safety glass (LSG) is a material that is specifically processed because of its composition.
During a recent project to understand the ability to use Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA) via linear bonding for cable wall fittings, a unique aspect of the material indicates a potential novel method for cold bending glass.
This paper presents the results of an exploratory study into the metal-to-glass bond strength of a structural polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer.
Overview of the three available techniques for WS de-airing.
Numerous innovations have been seen in the last decades concerning new façade technologies. These were driven by new materials or new applications of known materials, such as glued-on wall structures (structural glazing) in the 60’s and 70’s.
The fragment count in the standardized fragmentation test in the standard EN 12150-1 is the way to define the safety level of tempered glass and a way to also get an indication about the stress and strength level of the tempered glass.
It is estimated that 100 million to 1 billion birds a year perish due to collisions with glass.(1-2) In North America, some communities have enacted legislation aimed at protecting birds by calling for the design and installation of birdsafe glazing.
Façades play an important role in the control of energy flow and energy consumption in buildings as they represent the interface between the outdoor environment and the indoor occupied space.
This paper will discuss the psychology of perception, threshold, and emotion in interior glass design.
Glass distortions may cause objects to appear irregular and out of focus when observed through a distorted glass panel.
Adhesive bonding is an efficient joining process with great potential for materialefficient constructions. Today, the technology is already applied in almost all branches of industry.
Modern architecture continues to produce ever more attractive and higher quality façade constructions.
The aim of this paper is to show that it is possible to reduce costs while maintaining clear architectural, constructive and structural concepts.
Structural, architectural and installation demands must all be considered in glass structures. The best solutions do not form a compromise between these demands but integrate them into one solution.
Windows have always been at the intersection of various technologies and architectural processes that evolved in parallel and often intertwined.
The New Hype in Top End Architecture – an Examination of Latest Product Developments and Projects
Three-dimensional formed glass products, manufactured from flat glass, are experiencing rapidly growing demand.

Curved insulated glass units formed by tempered bending or annealed slumped bending offer a bold expression of architectural design with transparency and energy efficiency.
In the constant search for original designs that truly push the limits, many building projects in the Middle East have been driving global innovation in engineering and façade design.
