Applications Of Tempered Glass Sheet And Toughened Glass

Applications Of Tempered Glass Sheet And Toughened Glass

Toughened glass is a type of glass with greater structural integrity than annealed glass. Toughened glass, often called tempered glass, has a different manufacturing process from traditional glass. To create annealed glass, silica is fired up and melted to get a clear, crystalline structure. When it breaks, it breaks into long, sharp shards.

Toughened glass is a type of glass with greater structural integrity than annealed glass. Toughened glass, often called tempered glass, has a different manufacturing process from traditional glass. To create annealed glass, silica is fired up and melted to get a clear, crystalline structure. When it breaks, it breaks into long, sharp shards.

On the other hand, toughened glass uses a combination of chemical and temperature controlled processes. This changes the structure of the glass. It has lower stress points and forms cube-like crystalline structures. Because of this, tempered glass shatters into cubes rather than into long, sharp shards.

According to the Scientific American, tempered glass can withstand 24,000 psi of pressure before shattering. As such, specialised types of toughened glass are used in buildings as an anti-theft measure. Bulletproof or shatterproof glass is common in banks, commercial and government buildings.

Cooking and Heating Applications

Tempered glass has many applications in cooking and heating. Pie dishes, platters and chemistry glassware are typically made of toughened glass. Toughened glass can withstand constant temperatures of up to 245 degrees Celsius. However, sudden, extreme temperature changes will crack the glass.

Applications in Vehicles

In vehicles, especially automobiles, toughened glass reduces the occurrence of deadly lacerations significantly. The small, cube-like shards of this kind of glass minimises cuts and subsequent bleeding. According to the FBI in the US, installing tempered glass in the side and rear windows prevent injury. Tempered glass is four to five times more resistant to breakage than annealed glass.

Architectural Applications

Due to its structural strength, tempered glass is widely used in architectural applications. Tempered glass is strong enough to use in frameless, standalone structures such as balustrades and glass doors. It is also used for glass walls and large windows on the side of buildings.

Gadget Applications

The touch screens of many mobile devices use toughened glass. This minimises the risk of breakage in case the gadget is dropped from a certain height.

Toughened glass has a myriad of applications. It has greatly improved the safety of glass, allowing for its widespread use in many industries.
