So what are the main tempered glass properties? Let us take a closer look.
- Tempered glass has increased strength characteristics to mechanical stress. Strength indicators of tempered glass are 5-7 times higher than ordinary glass
- Tempered glass has high heat resistance. Such glass can easily withstand both extremely high temperatures (up to 300 ° C) and low (up to -70 °C). In addition, tempered glass perfectly
- tolerates temperature differences. Such characteristics are perfect for regions where in winter the temperature outside drops below -20° / -30° C
- Unlike ordinary glass, which breaks into sharp small fragments, tempered glass in a similar case turns into crumbs. Due to this, the risk of injury is minimized.
- Tempered glass does not change its chemical composition, mass and shape, as well as optical characteristics after heat treatment.
- Tempered glass retains aesthetic and decorative properties, like ordinary glass.
- Tempered glass can be easily customized. The client can choose the desired glass thickness (i.e. the required level of strength), as well as choose the right color scheme.
- Tempered glass does not need special care. It is easy to clean and does not require special cleaning agents.
Where Is Tempered Glass Used?
Tempered glass properties allow it to be used in many areas. Their solid structure and safety are the main factors influencing the choice of customers.
