Advantages of Tempered Glass

March 10, 2023

Tempered glass, also known as reinforced glass, is a physical or chemical method of forming a compressive stress layer on the surface of the glass, where the glass itself has a high compressive strength and will not cause damage. When the glass is subjected to external forces, this pressure layer can offset some of the tensile stress to avoid shattering the glass, and although the tempered glass is in a state of greater tensile stress internally, no defects exist within the glass to cause damage, thus achieving the purpose of improving the strength of the glass.

The main advantages of tempered glass:

  1. Increased strength: The strength is several times higher than ordinary glass, the bending strength is 3~5 times higher than ordinary glass, and the impact strength is 5~10 times higher than ordinary glass, which improves the strength and safety at the same time.

  2. Improved safety: The use of safety, its load-bearing capacity increased to improve the fragile nature, even if the destruction of tempered glass is also a small fragment without sharp angles, the harm to the human body is greatly reduced. 

  3. Improved thermal stability: Tempered glass has 2~3 times higher resistance to cold and heat than ordinary glass, and can generally withstand temperature changes of more than 150LC, which has obvious effects on preventing thermal fracture.

Tempered glass is often used in furniture, electronic and electrical industries, architecture, decoration industry, bathrooms, automobiles, escalators, and other places where safety and drastic temperature changes are especially needed, and as the original sheet of insulating glass and laminated glass.
