What is toughened glass?

Toughened glass is commonly referred to as toughened safety glass, safety glass or tempered glass. While glass can be toughened using heat or chemicals, abc Glass Processing uses the heat toughening process.

We have in place a Glaston toughening furnace and our glass toughening process involves heating each glass sheet to above 600 °C before quickly cooling the outside faces. This puts the outside of the glass under compression and the inside under tension.

The result is much stronger and safer toughened glass panels. The tempered glass is around five times stronger than standard annealed “float glass” – the untoughened glass in sheets. As safety glass, it is also designed to shatter into hundreds of regular shaped small pieces rather than large razor shape shards, as is the case with untoughened glass.
