PPG has posted a new video to the online PPG Glass Education Center demonstrating how bent and laminated glasses are manufactured.

The 3 ½-minute video, which was filmed at Standard Bent Glass in East Butler, Pennsylvania, presents in step-by-step fashion how finished flat glass is transformed into bent glass, from initial cutting and washing to shaping in the hearth, temperature and pressure treatment in the autoclave, and final quality check.

The video also chronicles the parallel process for laminated glass, including application and sealing of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers between multiple lites of glass.

Launched in 2013, the PPG Glass Education Center is a growing online library of technical information that serves as an objective, user-focused resource about designing, specifying and building with glass for architects, specifiers, students and professionals in the glass, construction and building industries.

Content is updated regularly based on the most frequently asked questions PPG gets on its website, during sales calls and through its call center.
