Fusion Glass from RegaLead proves popular with glass processors

“We believe the success of Fusion Glass is mainly because it’s a cost-effective system, built around the inspired concept of float-compatible glass, which has made the artisan process suitable for industrial usage – and all of the glass processors we have been working with tend to agree,” explains Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director of RegaLead. “This technique allows you to fuse coloured glass directly onto float glass, so there is no requirement to purchase specialist and expensive base glass.

The size of the kiln would determine the size and volume you are able to produce, but as the fusing process is easier, you can produce larger volumes of work at a much faster rate.

 

“The process of fusing glass is so simple and works by superimposing stained, transparent, opaque or veined glasses to base glass through a melting process.  Once the design is produced, the glass is cut and laid on float glass before it is fused together at 840°c in the programmable kiln. Float compatible, Fusion Glass opens up the possibilities for volume production of contemporary decorative glass at prices comparable with other techniques used in the UK market.  Suitable for a whole host of applications, Fused Glass can be used to produce glass panels for the home, such as kitchen splashbacks, wetroom walls or glass worktops.  We have also launched an extensive range of stainless steel moulds designed for glass slumping, which allows Fused Glass to be used in order to make dishes, bowls and other decorative pieces.  A small selection of these along with all of our other Decorative Glass Products can be found in our new Definitive Product Catalogue, which is available now to download from our website.”
