Silicone membranes and vacuum bags for the glass industry

As a supplier for well-known manufacturers of vacuum tables, laminators and presses we offer you rollable, extremely elastic silicone membranes and vacuum bags of very good restoring quality. They adjust any form so that the pressing of flat components in the glass industry is easily done. The membranes and vacuum bags in different thicknesses and qualities serve the foiling and coating of glass panes.

In the glass sector are mainly silicone membranes, with the following properties:
Material thickness:  0.5 - 4 mm
Material hardness:  35 - 60 Shore A
Elongation at tear:  300 - 800 %

Silicones are relatively new materials with a unique spectrum of applications and qualities not able of being achieved by any other synthetic material.

In addition to basic silicone membranes we offer you as a special product a flat vacuum bag from silicone of high resilience and heat resistance at temperatures up to 200°C. The bag consists of 2 pieces with chequered sealing edge and perfectly fits flat components of glass. The glass pane is put at the bottom part of the bag. Subsequently the other part is attached on top. Due to this bisection it is possible to put large, heavy glass panes into the bag from the top using a vacuum cup, for example when manufacturing laminated safety glass. In the top half of the bag there is a conventional profile contact for vacuum pumps assuring an easy handling.

Products made to measure and individual consultation on-site
The 2-parts vacuum bag and our membranes are offered in different sizes. We manufacture our products according to your individual measurements and we like to consult you on-site. Even a stockage in our warehouse is possible.
Get into contact with us. We look forward to extensively consulting you!
