A UNIQUE EXPERTISE
With more than 60 years of experience
in glass, we are proud to offer our
knowledge and technology to any large
or small projects with state-of-the-art
equipment and high quality thin glass.
TYPES OF GLASS
ShapeYourGlass offers two types of extra thin glass in different thicknesses to fit your needs.
The Falcon Glass is a premium glass developed by AGC. Thanks to its special composition, the Falcon Glass is stronger than regular glass (up to 5x more resistant than Sodalime glass). It is especially the material of choice for thin coverglass in touch-enabled applications for example. Last but not least, its optical performances ( neutral color and high light and energy transmission ) makes it the perfect solution for design and energy application.
Soda-lime is the most prevalent type of glass across the industry.
It has high light transmission, and its qualities can be improved thank to our several surface treatments available. On the contrary of the Falcon glass, sodalime glass has a light blue tint, especially visible on the edges.
Chemical strengthening allows the thin glass to be highly hit-proof.
Edges have a clear aspect to prevent any changes in the render.
Our glass is scratch-resistant and does not become dull with time.
Significant weight reduction compared to traditional glass.
LASER CUTTING TECHNOLOGY
True form freedom
Glass cutting is a complex process requiring innovative technologies. Our laser-cut technique allows many possibilities in terms of shape whether straight or rounded. Moreover, this step does not alter the resistance of the glass and provides high-quality straight edges finish.
High quality 90° angle
No need for grinding
Suitable for mass production
Very high tolerance
We offer different types of surface treatments to fit your requirements
Chemical strengthening, via ion exchange, is commonly used to reinforce ultrathin glass for high-tech applications. This process tremendously improves the mechanical strength and the scratch resistance of the glass and then offers new possibilities for applications such as curved displays e.d for automotive, interior building, or other device applications.
Glare is the negative sensation produced by too much reflection in the visual field. As a result, glare causes reduced visibility (less contrast e.g.).
This treatment is designed to reduce the negative effects of the incident light, by diffusing the reflections. This gives anti-glare performances while offering optimum contrast and faithful color rendering with a controlled amount of halo.
This treatment improves the touch feeling of the glass (paper-like or cotton-like depending on the treatment).
Anti-reflective is an optical coating that reduces reflection and increases light transmission. As a result, it provides better transparency and view through glass. It is typically recommended when there is a great difference in brightness on one or both sides of the glass (such as displays, windows, facades...)
If you add our anti-reflective to our anti-glare treatment, you will improve the optical performance towards zero reflection (except soda-lime).
Anti-finger print is a treatment based on the combination of oleophobic and hydrophobic materials. It means that it is repellent to water and grease/ Its special feature allows the glass to be easily cleaned without changing the appearance of its surface while giving a uniform aspect. This also provides better optical properties and a real softness in touch feeling.
Our multi-disciplinary team composed of designers and engineers is here to assist every step of your project.
We are able to create the required technical drawings, show you a variety of samples so you can have a better idea of the final render, and create the printing files with you as well.
