Beveling
Beveling creates angles on glass pieces that meet customer specifications. WHEATON has the ability to bevel both the inside and outside diameter of glass pieces to provide as uniquely a
beveled edge as desired.
Coatings
A variety of coatings are available including silverization and heat resistant coatings. A plastisol coating can also be applied to glass containers; which can darken a container for storing light
sensitive materials. PVC-based plastisol coating on outside of bottle promotes safety by retaining contents if bottle is accidentally broken.
Conturax
®
Conturax glass tubing and rod produces increased surface to volume ratios compared with purely cylindrical shapes, and this combined with the corrosion resistance and smooth surface of the
glass are significant features. These glass profiles have interesting optical properties, a feature which provides considerable scope for use in lighting, as pendants for light fittings, and in the
design of distinctive interior decorations. Conturax is manufactured from borosilicate glass and avaliable in diameters from 10-70mm.
Cutting
WHEATON cuts glass with the precision the industry requires. Pieces of glass can be cut to exact dimensions without the worry of excess or waste.
Custom Cut Tubing and Rod
WHEATON works with and makes available to customers a wide range of glass tubing sizes. Custom products are produced with precision tolerance with a high degree of reproducibility.
Decaling and Screening
Decaling and screening is the process of printing directly onto the glass. This allows company logos, content or measuring information to be placed on product.
Drilling
WHEATON has the ability to cleanly drill holes into glass; which is often necessary when working with hanging glass pieces as well as in lighting applications.
Frosting
Sandblasting creates a matte appearance on glass; which is often referred to as “frosted.” This process gives glass the unique finish that may be required for specific applications.
Grinding
The process of grinding creates flat surfaces that make it easy to join components together. This reduces the time and cost needed to achieve advanced processes at any facility.
Lathing
Lathe work is available for scientific, artistic, and architectural applications. WHEATON specializes in a variety of techniques including round-bottoming, flat-bottoming, flaring and custom
apparatus work.
Lamination
Lamination combines different sizes of tubing to achieve custom outside diameter / inside diameter combinations.
Overflow
WHEATON has the capacity to handle customer’s overflow work during peak demand.
Polishing
Polishing creates a smooth finish which is ideal for components that have exposed edges. It can be an economic and efficient alternative to grinding.
Safety Coated Containers
A PVC-based plastisol coating can be applied on the outside of a glass container; which can darken a container for storing light sensitive materials. A coated bottle promotes safety by retaining
contents if bottle is accidentally broken.
Sandblasting
Sandblasting creates a matte appearance on glass pieces which is often referred to as “frosted.” This process gives glass the unique finish that may be required for specific applications.
Screening and Decaling
Screening and decaling is the process of printing directly onto the glass. This allows company logos, content or measuring information to be placed on finished product.
Silanization
Silanization is a process which creates a chemical reaction in the surface of the glass. This translates into a non-stick surface for liquids and powders; which reduces the amount of liquid left in
a container and eliminates a meniscus when measuring exacting amounts.
Step Grinding
Step Grinding is the process of grinding into the wall of a glass fitting without going through. It creates a small step in the lip of the fitting that can be used to produce a more efficient seal.
Tempering
Tempering is a process that heats the glass for a specific amount of time to release certain atoms. This provides a stronger level of heat resistance than normal glass.
