How-to DIY Portrait Laminated Glass(Fabricated Laminated Glass)
By Peter Lin
Step 1 What we are going to make?
Enhanced portrait glass
Step 2 Get the photos of yourself
If you want to print the photos of yourself, you need PP papers and the print machine. But you can also ask some printing company to make it for you. But remember that it’s better if the paper is PP or PVC.
Step 3 Pre-laminated the Portrait Glass
The combination is : Glass+EVA Film+Photo+EVA Film+Glass.
Remember that wait till the photo’s ink is dry.
And the EVA Film here is a hot melt adhesive film.
Cut the extra EVA Film and the photo outside the glasses smoothly.
Use high-temperature resistance tape to solid the pre-laminated glass.
Step 4 Put the pre-laminated glass inside silicone vacuum bag
Put the pre-laminated glass inside silicone vacuum bag
Seal the silicone vacuum bag.
Start vacuum pump, double check the vacuuming is working well, and the value of vacuum pump reaches the required value
Step 5 Heating in two temperature stages
Normally, the heating will be set in two stage:
Low temperature stage: 60 degrees C for 15 minutes
High temperature stage:120 degrees C for 40 minutes
Step 6 Stop heating and wait for the laminated glass to cool down
Don’t stop vacuuming until the laminated glass is cool to the room temperature, Or the bubbles will come out inside the laminated glass.
Then you can get your portrait enhanced glass of yourself out of the silicone bag.
Use the EVA thermal cutter(also named as Hot Knife, Heat Cutter, Foam Cutter, Fabric Cutter)to get fid of the remained EVA film of the laminated glass.
Prepare all the materials you need before take actions:
Silicone vacuum bag
Ethylene-vinyl acetate EVA Interlayer Film
High-temperature resistance tapes
Hot Knife, Heat Cutter, Foam Cutter, Fabric Cutter, EVA Thermal Cutter
