Tempered Glass: Introduction and Use

  • Tempered glass, also known as toughened glass, features more durability and higher strength than any other type of glass. The composition of tempered glass allows it to disintegrate into smaller granular chunks instead of fragment into small pieces. Typically, thermal and chemical processes are involved in the manufacture of tempered glass. Strength, thermal resistance, and safety are significant characteristics of tempered glass. As a result, tempered glass is gaining popularity in various applications.
  • In a tempered glass, the tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the interior into tension. As a result, tempered glass does not splinter into jagged shards, but crumbles into small granular chunks when it gets broken. These smalssl granular chunks help prevent serious injuries and major accidents.
  • Tempered glass offers benefits such as high durability, better strength, and high safety. Therefore, it is widely used in various applications including passenger vehicle windows, shower doors, architectural glass doors and tables, refrigerator trays, and mobile screen protectors. It is also employed as a component of bulletproof glass. Furthermore, it is employed in diving masks. Tempered glass is also employed in various types of plates and cookware.
  • Tempered glass is widely used in various passenger vehicles. In the construction industry, tempered glass is used in interior and exterior elements of various structures, such as skylights, large windows, elevators, sliding doors, and windows, which extend close to the floor level. Tempered glass is also employed in swimming pools, doorways, and stairways due to its high strength and ability to ensure safety.
