Several times tougher than ordinary glass with residual surface compression in excess of 10,000 psi, GP
Tempered Safety Glass is heat treated by heating ordinary float glass in high temperature and then cooling it rapidly by blowing air onto its surfaces.
Tempered Safety Glass is supplied to comply with either of the following standards where specified:
1. ANSI Z97.1:2004
2. BS 6206:1981
3. BS EN12600:2002
4. BS EN12150:2000
5. AS/NZS 2208:1996
Strength : 3 to 5 times higher impact and bending strength than ordinary glass.
Heat Resistant : Resistant to rapid temperature changes or thermal shocks which can cause ordinary glass to crack.
Safety : When GP
Tempered Safety Glass breaks, it will shatter into small blunt pieces, thus preventing serious injuries.
