Toughened glass is regular float glass that goes through a heating and cooling cycle which changes the structure of the glass. It is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety are major concerns.
After the processing, the glass has mechanically and thermally changed making it about 5 times stronger than regular annealed glass.
In addition, when this glass breaks, it will shatter into small pieces making it safer than regular glass breakage.
Most glass types can be toughened in the thickness range of 4mm – 25mm.
It should be noted that edge treatment, hole and notch positioning need careful consideration when glass is to be toughened.
