Advantages of Tempered Glass
Strong tempered glass is approximately 4x stronger than annealed glass, or “ordinary” glass. The process used to manufacture tempered glass makes it stronger, but also make it more difficult to machine. If you need help picking out the right product for your needs, our experts are ready to assist!
Tempered glass is specially formulated to resist impact, an important feature in windows and other building applications. In the event that tempered glass breaks, it will shatter into small granules instead of sharp shards, making it safer for those who come in contact with it.
Tempered glass is heat resistant and can withstand temperatures up to 470 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of this, tempered glass is ideal for such appliances as ovens and stove tops, or for use in areas that may be in contact with heat or other sources of extreme temperature regularly.
Tempered glass is much stronger than typical glass. It can withstand impacts of around 100 times the pressure of standard glass, making it ideal for applications where there’s lots of movement and handling, such as car windows and doors, or mirrors in public spaces. Because it’s made by heating toughened glass to extreme temperatures, tempered glass still maintains its visibility.
