Cutting Tempered Glass is made by heating flat glass to just below its softening temperature (650 °c) and suddenly chilling it with jets of cold air. It results in the outer skins under powerful compressive stress and the interior with severe tensile stress. In consequence, the impact applied to the glass will be overcome by the compressive stress on the surfaces to assure safety of use. It is ideal for areas with high wind loads and areas where human contacts are an important consideration.
Cutting tempered glass can be made according to customer’s requirments, sizes from 300x300mm, shapes as: rectange, oval, round.
Advantages of cutting tempered glass
1>Tempered glass is 6 times harder than ordinary float glass
2> Tempered glass is with Excellent mechanical strength and safety performance
3> High security, once tempered glass breakage occurs, the glass disintegrate into small cubical fragments,which are relative harmless to human body
4> Sizes of tempered glass are produced per customer request, once tempered, cannot be cut down
Considering the characteristics of tempered glass, glass size should be confirmed before making production. Once tempered glass size is confirmed, tempered glass can not be made mechanical treatment any more, otherwise, it will be broken. If breakage occurs the glass breaks up into small, cubical fragments, which are not threatening to humans.
