Toughened Glass

tempered glassTempered glass

Tempered glass is made through a thermal treatment. This safety glass obtaines a high resistance to mechanical and thermal shock. Tempered glass is 5 times stronger than regular glass of equal thickness.

Made strong through heating

The glass is heated to over 600°C and then cooled down at a carefully controlled rate, while a big tension is built up. When the glass breaks, it breaks apart into thousands of small fragments without sharp edges.

Tempered glass retains the light and energy characteristics of the commodity. Once heat-treated, the glass cannot be cut or drilled.

Applications toughened glass

Tempered glass can be incorporated into insulating double glazing and provided with a coating or be assembled into laminated glass.


  • tempered glass doors
  • balcony fences
  • furniture
  • any application where improved resistance to thermal or mechanical stress is required.


Chemically toughened glass

Chemically toughened glassBy putting glass under certain conditions in a salt bath, it gets a thin surface layer of high pressure tension. This tension gives the glass the mechanic specifications that help improve the strength of the glass to its best.
The chemical toughneness is especially used voor the clot of 3mm thin glass. Voor a chemical treatment it is neccessary for the surface to stay flat. This gives producers the possiblity to use toughened glas in solutions like: copying machines, sun panels, microwaves, meters, lightning, cars, boats and many other.


Benefits of chemically toughened glass

Chemically toughened glass gives you the following benefits:

  • Increasing the bending strength
  • Increasing thermal shock constancy
  • Increasing scratch resistance

More advantages for using thinner glass with a higher toughness: 

  • Increase of transmission
  • Lesser weight
  • Lower costs for the frame and substructure
