Why tempered glass self explode?
professionals says, part of the reason for the occurrence of Toughened glass self-explosion, except the degree of tempering, the existence of improper use, improper installation, the temperature difference is too huge, and external shocks may also lead to tempered glass explosion.
The tempered glass more thicker, the glass more safe?
The tempered glass after the burst will become into granular, the risk of harm to human body compared to ordinary glass is much lower. The thickness of the toughened glass in 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, the toughened glass quality is much better. More than 10mm thick and the quality is difficult to meet the full requirements of tempered glass. Some factories like to mislead consumers, the thicker the glass more secure.

Safety toughened glass - low self explosion possibility
Toughened glass belongs to safety glass and is a kind of prestressed glass. To enhance the strength of glass, chemical or physical method is usually used to form compressive stress on the glass surface. When the glass is subjected to external force, the surface stress is first canceled, so the bearing capacity is enhanced. Glass self-wind pressure, cold and heat, impact and so on. Toughened glass after the burst into a granular, and the low rate of self-explosion.Sun Global Glass produce tempered safety glass under ISO9001 standard and our tempered glass have passed BS 6206 UK safety glass standard, EN 12150 CE European safety glass standard, Chinese Safety Glass Compulsory Certification (CCC).
