Advantages and disadvantages of tempered glass used on doors and windows

Tempered glass belongs to safety glass. Tempered glass is actually a kind of prestressed glass, in order to improve the strength of the glass, the glass surface to form a compressive stress, the glass bear the external force first offset the surface stress, thereby enhancing the carrying capacity.Enhance the glass itself, wind pressure resistance, heat and cold resistance, impact resistance, and so on.

Tempered glass features:
High strength: the same thickness of the tempered glass such as,6mm clear tempered glass is the impact of 6mm clear float glass 3 to 5 times,bending strength was 3-5 times that of ordinary glass.
Safety: increased strength of the tempered glass to improve the fragile nature, even if the destruction of tempered glass is no small angle of small debris, the damage to the human body reduced.Tempered quenching and cooling of the quality of glass than ordinary glass increased by 2 to 3 times, generally can withstand more than 150 ℃ temperature difference, to prevent the thermal cracking has a significant effect.
Thermal stability: tempered glass has good thermal stability, can withstand the temperature difference is 3 times the ordinary glass, can withstand 150 ℃ temperature difference.

Tempered glass defects:
1, Glass after tempered can not be cut and processed any more, it must be processed before the tempered process, completely accurate cut into the required size and shape, and then do toughened processing.
2, Although the strength of tempered glass than ordinary glass, but the tempered glass blew (self-explosion) the possibility of ordinary glass does not self-explosion possibility.
3. Corner is relatively fragile: glass after tempered, its corner is relatively fragile, after suffering from external forces may be broken. When using tempered glass products, be careful not to bump the corner.

Tempered glass application:
Both flat tempered glass and curved tempered glass are safety glass. Widely used in high-floor building doors and windows, glass curtain wall, indoor partition glass, lighting ceiling, sightseeing elevator channel, furniture, glass fence,as well as high-floor windows open to the outside.
