Bonding and Assembly
Bonding attachments to the glass greatly expands the applications for automotive glass. Directly bonding hardware to a glass substrate reduces components and labor during installation. Guardian Automotive has a long history of bonding with a broad range of materials, from epoxies to urethanes to PVB and films.
Bonding expands the role of a fabricated glass product beyond the typical enclosure function. It will allow a piece of glass to have a structural, functional or cosmetic role. Guardian bonding expands the capabilities of a piece of glass to fit your requirements. For example, it can help you in the following areas:
Encapsulation combines a fabricated glass piece with an injection-molded profile to provide a single-piece enclosure. It reduces the number of components and installation time while improving aesthetics and functionality of the finished glass product. It gives you the ability to combine complex profiles, expand styling options and, with certain materials, insert molding of structural components.
