Tempered glass

Egypt's Leading Glass Manfucturer

Tempered glass

Tempered Glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal to increase its strength by bringing its interior into tension while the outer surfaces are put into compression.The glass is placed onto a roller table, taking it through a furnace that heats it well above its transition temperature. The glass is then rapidly cooled with forced air drafts while the inner portion remains free to flow for a short time.

Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumbles into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards to minimize the possibility of harm.

Tempered glass must be cut to size or pressed to shape before tempering, and cannot be re-worked once tempered. Polishing the edges or drilling holes in the glass is carried out before the tempering process starts.

Benefits & Uses

Tempered glass is used when strength, thermal resistance, and safety are important considerations.
Typical applications of tempered glass include:

  • Passengers Vehicle
  • Balcony doors
  • Athletic facilities
  • Façades
  • Shower doors and bathroom areas
  • Ovens


Benefits of Tempered Glass


1. Safety

Tempered glass is considered to be a safety glass because when it breaks, it shatters into small, rounded pieces rather than sharp, jagged shards, reducing the risk of injury.

2. Strength

Tempered glass is four to five times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness, making it more resistant to impacts and thermal stress.

3. Heat Resistance

Tempered glass is more heat resistant than ordinary glass, making it an excellent choice for use in applications where heat is a concern, such as oven doors, fireplace screens, and cookware.

4. Scratch Resistance

Tempered glass is more scratch resistant than ordinary glass, making it an excellent choice for use in high traffic areas, such as tabletops and shower enclosures.

5. Design Flexibility

Tempered glass can be cut and shaped to a wide range of sizes and configurations, making it a popular choice for architectural and decorative applications

6. Easy To Clean

Tempered glass is easy to clean and maintain, making it a popular choice for applications where hygiene is important, such as laboratory equipment and medical devices
