This company specializes in the bending of cylindrical, spherical, conical and parabolic float glass (monolithic, laminated or insulated, clear or tinted), tempered glass (monolithic or laminated) and heat-strengthened glass (monolithic or laminated). The insulated glass can have an air- or argon-filled cavity from 2 to 20 cm deep.   
Tambest also produces curved solar protection glass with pyrolitic or low-emissivity treatments, wire-embedded or decorative glasses, as well as laminated safety, security and bulletproof glass.
Maximum radius of curvature and dimensions vary depending on glass type and thickness, and it is also possible to fabricate more complex geometries. Consultation with the company is recommended to adapt the glass product to the specific requirements of each project.
