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.
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
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
ASTM C1048 standard, SGCC certificate
EN12150 standard, CE certificate
Australia & New Zealand
AS/NZS2208-1996 standard, AS/NZS 2208 certificate
Features & Benefits
<0.2% local bow & <0.3% arc bow standard, with non-visual defects in the surface.
3~5 stable cooperative factories to guarantee lead time based on different requests.
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.
