Class of 2020

Held in February the Bohle UV Bonding Unit is designed to provide an introduction to UV bonding, in addition to more advanced modules.

Attended by members of the team from shop fit out specialist Scoppio on day one and Chorley Glass and S Taylor & Son on day two, attendees were provided with a comprehensive grounding on the principles underpinning effective UV glass bonding. This includes training on optimum environments for UV bonding covering everything from room and glass temperature to storage of adhesives. It also explores glass requirements and cleaning to safe manual handling, UV light and equipment and adhesive application and clamping.

Amanda Carr, Business Development Executive, said: “We went through our own accreditation process with GQA last summer, which means that we’re now an accredited training provider for UV bonding. It means that attendees on our courses get to leave with hopefully not only a better understanding of UV bonding, its applications and how to achieve a really excellent bond but also end the day with an accreditation which can contribute to their professional development.”

The Bohle GQA Approved Glass Bonding Unit emulates the consumables, machinery and tooling wholesalers, core customer workshop but with the addition of a series of Q&A and practical assessments. This includes a range of different UV bonding methods and the tools required to support them. The course then covers off the key principles and environmental requirements, which underpin and can influence the UV bonding process, including everything from temperature through to cleaning and preparation and pre-treatment of glass. The course also provides guidance on how to select the right, adhesives and lamps, dependent on application and material, including to achieve effective glass-to-glass and glass-to-metal bonds.

“UV bonding is key in a wide range of applications of glass from furniture making, to shower installation and retail. The course is deigned to give attendees an understanding of what’s possible – and then how to do it”, Amanda concluded.

In addition to its UV bonding training days, Bohle also runs a series of training programmes covering topics as diverse as safe glass handling to sliding door installation; machinery maintenance and industrial glass cutting.
