The versatility of tempered glass

  1. 1. The Versatility of Tempered Glass
  2. 2. Introduction • Over time, enhanced technology and manufacturing processes have evolved glass into a lot of varieties. • Tempered glass is one such versatile variety of glass that finds its use in a lot of industries, most notably automotive and architecture. • AIS Glass is India’s leading glass manufacturing company, and specializes in the production of automotive and architectural tempered glass.
  3. 3. What is Tempered Glass • Tempered glass is a type of safety glass manufactured by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength. • It is also known as toughened glass. • It is primarily used in automotive windows, architectural glass doors and windows, cookware, and mobile devices.
  4. 4. How is Tempered Glass manufactured? • First, float glass is put in a long furnace, and heated to approximately 680° C, which is equal to the softening temperature of glass. • Through pressing or natural gravity, the glass is simultaneously shaped, and thereafter, cooled rapidly. • The cooling is achieved through quenching, which is the process of blasting heated glass sheets with cool air as soon as they are out of the furnace. • Due to quenching, stress points are created in the glass, thus making it four to five times stronger than ordinary float glass.
  5. 5. Advantages of Tempered Glass in Architecture • It is physically and thermally stronger (by up to five times) than normal glass due to its compressive strength, thereby providing additional safety. • Due to its enhanced impact resistance, tempered glass is frequently used in home and office architecture to impart structural strength. • Since it greatly enhances the security of a space, it is also a great choice for doors and windows as well. • It is also used in shower cubicles, tabletops, partitions, facades, etc.
  6. 6. Advantages of Tempered Glass in Automobiles • In automobiles, safety of the passengers is of prime importance. Therefore, specialized safety tempered glass is used in construction of side windows. • Tempered glass does not shatter into dangerous sharp shards. Instead, it breaks into tiny blunt pebble-shaped granular chunks that do not cause any injury. • Therefore, it is mostly used in automotive industry to manufacture a vehicle’s side windows and rear windshield glass. • It also offers great visibility and resistant to the harsh weather conditions on the road.
  7. 7. AIS Stronglas • AIS Stronglas is one of the toughest and most durable architectural tempered glasses in the industry. • It is several times stronger than ordinary base glass while also retaining its light transmission and energy properties. • It lowers the risk of impact-related breakage, and is commonly used in table tops, balustrades, shelves, facades, partitions, wash basins, canopies, and shower enclosures.
  8. 8. AIS Temperlite-LT • Temperlite-LT from AIS Glass is one of the best tempered glasses manufactured in India. • It is primarily used for a car’s side window glass and rear windshield glass since it is does not break into sharp pieces, thereby protecting the passengers from injury. • It is up to five times sturdier than annealed glass, but with the exact same thickness.
