8mm Toughened Glass by Elite Safety Glass

It is processed by heating 8mm clear float glass, 8mm low iron glass, 8mm reflective glass, 8mm patterned glass, or 8mm Low-e glass to 650 degrees softening point, and then quenched rapidly. It creates tension inside the glass and compression outside the glass surface.

Heating Time

8mm clear/low iron tempered glass in Radiant furnace: 39s/mm, total 310 seconds~320 seconds

8mm clear/low iron toughened glass in Forced Convection furnace: 28s/mm, 220 seconds~230 seconds

8mm tinted/colored tempered glass in Radiant furnace: 36s/mm, 282 seconds~290 seconds

8mm tinted/colored toughened glass in Forced Convection furnace: 28s/mm, 220 seconds~230 seconds


Quenching Time

8mm toughened glass Quench Time = Glass Thickness^1.8=8mm^1.8=42s

Compression & Tension Zone

21% (1.68mm) up & down part with compression, 58% (4.64mm) middle part with tension.

Surface compression >90Mpa (over 13000Psi).


8mm Toughened Glass Standard & Certificate

North American

ASTM C1048 standard, SGCC certificate


EN12150 standard, CE certificate

Australia & New Zealand

AS/NZS2208-1996 standard, AS/NZS 2208 certificate


Features & Benefits


Quality Standard

<0.2% local bow & <0.3% arc bow standard, with non-visual defects in the surface.


Processing Flexibility 

3~5 stable cooperative factories to guarantee lead time based on different requests.


Turnkey Solution

From smaller size glass louver to giant glass 3660mm*18000mm toughened glass.



when 8mm tempered glass is broken, it will break into granularities to prevent series of injuries.   



8mm tempered glass is about 4~5 times stronger than 8mm annealed glass.



tempered glass can withstand 280℃ temperature variation. 


Typical Applications

Shower Screen

Glass door for pool fencing

Glass table top

Glass furniture

Windows, doors, facades
