How to contact Bohle 75
An innovative technology is setting trends: Bonding glass parts has become more popu-lar than ever. In the past, however, bonding glass was a time-consuming and delicatejob: from positioning the glass parts precisely to difficult application of the adhesiveand troublesome holding by hand. The result back then: high processing costs, unfavou-rable price/ benefit ratio for the customer, lost orders.
Bohle offers you everything you need for perfect bonding. Not only the know-how fromtwenty years of experience in glass bonding, but also the world's largest range of pro-ducts related to this technology. The advantages for your business are clear: practicallyunlimited design possibilities, for example in the construction of glass furniture, by invi-sible bonds and extraordinarily high bonding strength, very short processing times andlow investment requirements for equipment.
What is glass bonding?
Why bond instead of using screws?
Bonding in general is increasingly gaining importance in all areas of production.
The advantages of glass bonding at a glance:
Distribution of forces over a surface, thus avoiding punctual loads (e.g. by mechanical fixations)No weakening of the glass by drill holes or cut-outs, for exampleCrystal clear bonds, no adverse effects to the appearanceNew, previously impossible design variationsExtremely high bonding strengths in static and dynamic bondsVery short processing and curing timesLow investment in equipment required
Bonding glass parts has become morepopular than ever
Only with an absolutely clean surface is it possible to achieve optimal bonding results. Therefore, a thorough pre-cleaningand possible pre-treatment of the glass is very important. All bonding surfaces must be dry, clean and grease-free.Following you will find products suitable for surface cleaning. Please remember: Not every commercially available cleaningagent removes the actual types of dirt and contaminants that are on the surfaces of the bonding parts.On the contrary:"anti-spotting" additives form additional layers.
Bohle Special CleanerIdeal for cleaning prior to glass bonding or sealing. The Bohle special cleaner cleansand degreases glass, metal, ceramic and rubber. The special composition of the cleanerensures a very thorough cleaning.

After cleaning the bonding surfaces, an invisible moisture residue still remains whichcan negatively affect the strength of the bond. To avoid this from happening, the moi-sture must be removed - quickly and reliably with a suitable hot air fan.

PYROSIL Surface Pre-Treatment
For improved long-term adhesion of challenging bonds
The load-bearing capacity of a bond is measured by its tensile strength, which indicatesat which level of force the bond fails.Optimal effectiveness is achieved when the grea-test possible adhesion of the adhesive is attained. To make sure that bonds of proble-matic surfaces stay securely and durably bonded, e.g. when using glass treated withClearshield or glass subject to continuous stress such as humid rooms, a surface pre-treatment is essential.With the Bohle PYROSIL technology, a silicate sinter layer is brought onto the glasssurface with the help of a flame burner. In a second step, a coupling agent is applied,which reacts with the silicate sinter layer and subsequently also forms a permanentchemical bond with the adhesive when bonding. Such a pre-treated bond is durablyprotected against moisture infiltration.
Silicate particles connect and forma densely interlaced layer on thesurface for strong adhesion of theadhesive.
The surface is treated with the "pale blue section" of the flame. For uniform activation of the surface, theflame must be waved back and forth over the surface for at least five seconds. Leave the materials to cool,then apply the coupling agent. The cleaning and/or activating result may be negatively affected if the flameis held too close to or too far from the surface. The illustration shows the "pale blue section" of the flame.
Both bonding surfaces must be treated.Only the combination of flame and coupling agent produces the targetedcharacteristics.The coupling agent must be applied thinly and be allowed to flash off sufficiently.All further instructions relevant to glass bonding equally applyto the silicate technology.As far as possible, bonding should be done immediately after pre-treatment.
