Tempered Glass, which has started to occupy an important place in our lives thanks to its durability and aesthetics, contains heating and cooling phases to give pressure tension to the outer surfaces of glass on horizontal line and an indirect tensile strength to the middle side of the glass.
Tempered glass can withstand 300°C thermal shock, while non-tempered glass can be broken when subjected to about 40°C thermal shock. Tempered glass is about 5 times more durable compared to normal glass of equal thickness. Its heat resistance is also higher than normal glass.
After the glass has converted to tempered glass, cutting, grinding and other similar operations cannot be performed on it.
Known as security glass, tempered glass is used in many areas like exterior of buildings, automobiles, bathroom and shower covers, oven covers, and ice cabinet glasses.
