Cutting circular laminated glass?

Postby lawrieh » Wed Jun 19, 2019 5:17 pm

Hi
I regularly cut circular pieces of trueview AR70 up to about 90cm diameter and everything is fine.

I am considering using laminated glass for a specific order but I dont know if its possible or ever done? I have not even cut a square piece of laminated glass and the youtube videos I have watched make it look a little tricky.

does anyone have any experience of cutting shapes from laminated glass?

thanks

Hi
I haven’t any personal experience of cutting laminate glass but believe that Wessex can cut awkward shapes to order. Hope that helps :P

I think this is a case to farm it out, get your local glazing company to cut it, they cut laminated glass all the time

Take the glass to a fab shop with a water-jet machine.
