TEMPERED GLASS

Glass hardening is a special heat treatment of the material, due to which its structure becomes unusually strong. Tempered glass is resistant to temperature extremes, and does not form sharp fragments if it breaks up. This glass is ideal for the manufacture of kitchen backsplashes, doors, stairs, windows, tables, etc.

In fact, it is a common sheet glass, obtained by heating to a quenching temperature (650–680 ° C), followed by rapid uniform cooling with cold air on both sides. As a result of this treatment, residual mechanical compressive stresses are formed in the surface layers of the glass, ensuring its increased mechanical strength, heat resistance, and safety in case of fracture.

The safety and mechanical strength of tempered glass determine its widespread use in various types of industries, including the manufacture of furniture, fencing, and building facades. Such property as heat resistance allows glazing buildings without the risk of thermal shock that may arise as a result of the contrast of temperature inside and outside the building. Tinted tempered glass is especially popular in the manufacture of facades. It is able to provide privacy and protection from excessive sunlight.

Tempered glass cannot be cut, drilled or otherwise machined. Therefore, if you wish to install a product from such glass, it is necessary to carry out very accurate preliminary measurements. For example, if you want to decorate the kitchen with a backsplash made of tempered glass, it is best to contact the experts who will measure, manufacture and install the product. It will save you from unpleasant surprises while installing and using the product.
