Toughened glass also know as tempered glass, is processed by heating annealed glass to its softening point, and then quenched rapidly by compressed air flow. It increases the physical properties and stability of the float glass.
As long as keep the same thermal performance with normal glass, toughened glass is four to five times stronger than non heat-treated glass.
Toughened glass is additionally called safety glass, due to the fact that it is more difficult to damage. In case of a breakage, it breaks into little obtuse fragments that are much less dangerous than the sharp-edged shards by normal flat glass.
The safety glass is extremely recommended for areas that call for extra strength yet stunning transparency. Continue reading and learn about the various applications of different thickness toughened tempered glass from 4mm to 19mm in the exterior and interiors of the world.
