Video: The Basics of Fabricating Recycled Glass Slabs

Posted on 08 June 2017 by cradmin

This video produced by Vetrazzo shows the basics of fabricating recycled glass slab materials, such as cutting, feed speeds, polishing, overhangs, sink cut-out reinforcement, suitable applications and the effects of temperature change.

While this is certainly just a broad overview, it does explain how fabricating this type of material is similar and different to fabricating other hard surfaces, such as granite.
