Toughened glass is deep processed glass by heating float glass to temperature of 600-650℃ near glass softening point with rapid cooling or chemical tempering. Toughened glass has good mechanical properties, heat resistance and impact resistance, also known as tempered glass. After processing, the glass surface has uniform compressive stress. The strength of tempered glass is 3 - 10 times than good annealing float glass. The impact resistance is greatly improved as well. Tempered glass become mesh cracks after broken or produce small particles, will not hurt human. It is also known as safety glass. Tempered glass thermal impact performance is very good, the maximum safe working temperature is 287.78℃ and can withstand the temperature difference of 204.44℃. It can be used to manufacture observation window of high-temperature furnace doors, radiant gas heaters and dryers.
As tempered glass has good performance, so it is widely used in the automotive industry, construction and military industries and other fields.Toughened glass commonly used for high-rise building doors, windows, walls, shielding and shop windows, warships and ships portholes and desktop glass.
Tempered glass has ordinary tempered glass, heat absorption tempered glass, polished tempered glass and other varieties. Tempered glass products include flat tempered glass, curved tempered glass, semi-tempered glass and fully tempered glass. Flat tempered glass is mainly used for construction windows and doors(8mm-10mm tempered glass used for door),partition walls and curtain walls etc. Curved tempered glass is mainly used for automotive window glass. Semi-tempered glass is mainly used for windows of greenhouse, sun room house and partition.
Tempered glass can not be cut, grinding and corners can not hit. The size must be customized based on specific design drawings, We provide full range of good quality tempered glass 4mm to 19mm based on customers drawings, hot selling tempered glass are 10mm toughened glass,12mm tempered glass, 15mm toughened glass etc. In addition, it is strictly prohibited splashing sparks in the usage of tempered glass. Otherwise, when it is subjected to wind pressure or vibration, the scar will gradually expand, resulting in crushing.
