Tempered glass: For stronger and safer glass
Tempering is possible for almost all the types of glass we offer. Conventional glass tempering is a process by which a glass pane is passed through a glass furnace and then cooled suddenly upon exit. This process causes the glass to compress on itself making it much more resistant to impact. In addition, if the glass were to break, it would shatter into thousands of small pieces of glass instead of larger and more dangerous pieces. Tempered glass is therefore stronger and safer than non-tempered glass. This is also what makes tempered glass impossible to recut or reshape. You must therefore be sure that the dimensions are correct before tempering the glass.
