Tempered Glass

Tempered glass is a toughened glass manufactured through regulated chemical or thermal treatmen.

This increases its strength compared to ordinary or annealed glass and as a result, tempered glass is
widely used as a safety glass. The process of tempering compresses the outer surface while putting theinner surfaces into tension.

Tempered glass is made by placing annealed glass onto a roller table then taking it through a very hot furnace of degrees of up to 650 °C. This is to ensure it heats above its transition temperature of about 564 °C to 620 °C. Rapid cooling is done on the glass with forced air while the inner parts still flow for some time. Alternatively, a chemical toughening process can be used. A surface layer of thin glass (0.1 mm thick) is compressed by ion exchange of sodium ions present in the glass with potassium ions. Potassium ions are thirty percentage larger than the sodium ions. Ion exchange takes place when the annealed glass is immersed into molten potassium nitrate. Tempered glass manufactured through chemical toughening are stronger than thermally tempered glass and is thus recommended for glass objects of complex shapes of Tempered glass. At Giovani Glass we offer lots of options for one and all. While it comes about windshields the laminated glass is the obvious choice as in case of the accident chances of driver & passengers cut are been reduced.
Where is the tempered glass used?

Because of the safety advantages & heat resistance (and resulting from manufacturing process), the tempered glass can be used in the ovens, computer screens, coffee machines, shower doors, windows, and many more. But, Giovani Glass is mainly interested in the application in the screen protectors for the mobile phones & other devices.

Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. Tempering puts the outer surfaces into compression and the inner surfaces into tension.
