- Up to four to five times stronger than annealed glass of equal thickness
- Higher resistance to thermal stress than annealed and heat-strengthened glass
- When broken, breaks into numerous small pieces
- Meets safety glazing requirements
Heat Strengthened Glass:
Heat-Strengthened Glass is produced similarly to tempered glass. Heat-Strengthened Glass is approximately twice as strong as annealed glass with significantly greater resistance to thermal stress when compared to annealed glass of equal thickness. Heat-Strengthened Glass is NOT considered a Safety Glass product as defined by the above mentioned glass standards, and typically breaks into larger pieces than tempered glass.
