Tempered glass specific characteristic & application

2019-06-24 17:47:12

  Tempered glass is actually a kind of prestressing glass. In order to improve the strength of glass, chemical or physical methods are usually used to form compressive stress on the surface of glass. When the glass bears external forces, it first counteracts the surface stress, thus improving the bearing capacity, enhancing the glass's own resistance to wind pressure, heat and cold, impact and so on.


When the glass is destroyed by external force, the fragments will form small obtuse-angle fragments similar to honeycombs, which is not easy to cause serious harm to human body.


high strength

The impact strength and flexural strength of tempered glass with the same thickness are 3-5 times of those of ordinary glass and 3-5 times of those of ordinary glass.


thermal stability

Tempered glass has good thermal stability, can withstand three times the temperature difference of ordinary glass, and can withstand the temperature difference change of 300 C.



The first is that the strength of glass is several times higher than that of ordinary glass, and it is bending resistant.


Secondly, it is safe to use, and the increase of its carrying capacity improves the fragility. Even toughened glass is damaged by small fragments without sharp angle, which greatly reduces the harm to human body. The quench and heat resistance of tempered glass is 3 to 5 times higher than that of ordinary glass, and it can generally withstand the temperature difference of more than 250 degrees, which has obvious effect on preventing thermal cracking. It's one of the safety glasses. To ensure the safety of qualified materials for high-rise buildings.


Product Application

Flat and bend toughened glass belongs to safety glass. It is widely used in high-rise building doors and windows, glass curtain wall, indoor partition glass, lighting ceiling, sightseeing elevator channel, furniture, glass guardrail, etc. Typically toughened glass can be used in the following industries:


Architecture, building formwork, decoration industry (e.g. doors and windows, curtain walls, interior decoration, etc.)


Furniture Manufacturing Industry (Glass Tea Table, Furniture Matching, etc.)


Household appliances manufacturing industry (TV sets, ovens, air conditioners, refrigerators, etc.)


Electronic and instrumentation industries (mobile phones, MP3, MP4, clocks and watches and other digital products)


Automobile Manufacturing Industry (Automobile Windshield, etc.)


Daily-use products industry (glass vegetable boards, etc.)


Special Industry (Military Glass)


As toughened glass breaks, the debris will break into uniform small particles and there is no common glass knife-like sharp angle, so it is called safety glass and widely used in automobiles, interior decoration, and high-rise windows open to the outside.
