What is Tempered Glass Technology?

  • Glass that has been heated to around 700°C is suddenly cooled by cold air ventilation
  • This treatment creates controlled stress in the glass which improves most of its physical specifications: resistance to mechanical stress (bending, impacts) and thermal shock
  • A tempered glass product is about 2.5 times more resistant than an annealed product of the same thickness and resists a thermal shock of 130°C whereas annealed glass breaks above 40°C
  • Tempered glass, if broken, shatters into many small non-cutting pieces
