The Versatility Of Toughened Glass
Toughened glass is a type of safety glass manufactured by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength. It is also known as tempered glass. It is primarily used in automotive windows, architectural glass doors and windows, cookware, and mobile devices.
The versatility of toughened glass
Over time, enhanced technology and manufacturing processes have evolved glass into a lot of varieties.
Toughened glass is one such versatile variety of glass that finds its use in a lot of industries, most notably automotive and architecture.
Dragon Deco Glass is China’s leading glass manufacturing company, and specializes in the production of automotive and architectural toughened glass.
What is Toughened Glass
Toughened glass is a type of safety glass manufactured by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength.
It is also known as toughened glass.
It is primarily used in automotive windows, architectural glass doors and windows, cookware, and mobile devices.
How is Toughened Glass manufactured?
First, float glass is put in a long furnace, and heated to approximately 680° C, which is equal to the softening temperature of glass.
Through pressing or natural gravity, the glass is simultaneously shaped, and thereafter, cooled rapidly.
The cooling is achieved through quenching, which is the process of blasting heated glass sheets with cool air as soon as they are out of the furnace.
Due to quenching, stress points are created in the glass, thus making it four to five times stronger than ordinary float glass.
Advantages of Toughened Glass in Architecture
It is physically and thermally stronger (by up to five times) than normal glass due to its compressive strength, thereby providing additional safety.
Due to its enhanced impact resistance, toughened glass is frequently used in home and office architecture to impart structural strength.
Since it greatly enhances the security of a space, it is also a great choice for doors and windows as well.
It is also used in shower cubicles, tabletops, partitions, facades, etc.
Advantages of Toughened Glass in Automobiles
In automobiles, safety of the passengers is of prime importance. Therefore, specialized safety toughened glass is used in construction of side windows.
Toughened glass does not shatter into dangerous sharp shards. Instead, it breaks into tiny blunt pebble-shaped granular chunks that do not cause any injury.
Therefore, it is mostly used in automotive industry to manufacture a vehicle’s side windows and rear windshield glass.
It also offers great visibility and resistant to the harsh weather conditions on the road.
