What is UV Bonding?

UV bonding is a cutting-edge technique used to join pieces of glass or glass to metal using a special adhesive that cures and hardens upon exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. This process creates an incredibly strong, virtually invisible bond, resulting in seamless, aesthetically pleasing joints without the need for mechanical fixings. Ideal for a wide range of applications, from bespoke glass display cases to customised furniture and architectural features, UV bonding offers unparalleled clarity and durability.

The magic of UV bonding lies in its precision and versatility. It allows for the creation of complex, innovative designs that were previously unattainable with traditional bonding methods. Whether it's for crafting elegant retail display cabinets, unique home décor items, or functional office fixtures, UV bonding glass techniques elevate the potential for creative and practical applications.

At its core, UV bonding is about blending form with function. It not only enhances the visual appeal of a piece by providing a clean, unobstructed view of the contents or structure but also ensures strength and safety, making it a preferred choice for designers and architects alike. In a world where design and durability are paramount, UV bonding stands out as a sophisticated solution that marries beauty with resilience.

What can you achieve with UV bonding?

UV Glass bonding plays a pivotal role in a variety of settings, showcasing its versatility and effectiveness. In supermarkets and restaurants, transparent glass counters created using UV bonding techniques provide a hygienic barrier that allows customers to see their food options without direct exposure to the environment. This ensures safety and maintains quality, while offering an appealing visual presentation.

In the retail industry, especially in jewellery stores, UV bonding is essential for crafting elegant display cabinets. These displays are designed not just for aesthetic appeal but also to protect the items from environmental elements and security risks. The addition of metal to glass in UV bonding projects enables the creation of functional features such as hinged doors and lockable sections, providing both accessibility and security for valuable items.

This innovative merging of glass and metal, achieved through UV bonding, offers a blend of beauty and functionality. It provides durable solutions that protect and showcase items, whether for commercial display purposes or unique, custom installations. A1deSIGNS utilizes UV bonding to forge strong, aesthetically pleasing connections, opening up a world of design possibilities that are both protective and striking.

Equally fitting for the home or office, UV bonded creations, including custom glass display cases and UV bonding glass solutions, bring a touch of sophistication and innovation to any space, far beyond their common applications in retail settings. Whether it's for personal use or to enrich a work environment, UV bonded solutions offer durability, style, and a clear distinction from the ordinary, making them perfectly suited for anyone looking to add a sophisticated and innovative touch to their interior spaces.



The glass we make your creation from is toughened, so it is not as fragile as standard glass and the UV Bonding is stronger than the glass itself.


Once cured, the UV Bonding between the two surfaces is stronger than the surfaces themselves.


With different thicknesses of glass, we can help create strong creations that can endure everyday use.


Using frosted glass we can add an even lighting into your creation without the chance of any visible dotting.
