What is tempered glass

Tempered or toughened glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the interior into tension. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass (a.k.a. annealed glass) does. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

(This is how the tempered glass breakage look likes.)

  1. Fully tempered glass is about four times stronger than annealed (non-tempered) glass of the same thickness.
  2. Glass breaks into small, dull fragments ensuring the protection of individuals.
  3. Provides increased resistance to wind and snow loads as well as high thermal stresses.
  4. Meets the requirements of Safety Glazing Standards.
  5. The glass maintains its colour, its chemical properties as well as light transmission properties after it has been heat-treated.

In the cooperation of FSG, it has received a lot of support in glass engineering. So as to make our project progress faster to carry out and complete.
