Clear tempered glass for greenhouse and building 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. Such stresses cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards as plate glass (annealed glass) creates. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury. As a result of its safety and strength, clear tempered glass is used in a variety of demanding applications, including passenger vehicle windows, shower doors, architectural glass doors and tables, refrigerator trays, as a component of bulletproof glass, for diving masks, and various types of plates and cookware. Clear tempered glass for greenhouse and building is a heat toughened safety glass. It has undergone a special heat treatment to increase its strength and resistance to impact. In fact, tempered glass is approximately five times more resistant than normal glass. The tempered glass is used for glass curtain wall, tabletop, pooling fence, etc. We can make holes, cutouts, hinges, grooves, notch, polished edges, beveled edges, chamfered edges, grinding edges, and safety corner as customer need. Clear tempered glass for greenhouse and building belongs to safety glass. Toughened glass is actually a kind of prestressed glass. In order to improve the strength of glass, chemical, or physical methods are usually used to form compressive stress on the surface of the glass. When the glass bears external force, it first counteracts the surface stress, thus improving the bearing capacity, enhancing the glass's own wind compression, heat and cold resistance, impact, and so on. Features of clear tempered glass 1. 5 times harder than ordinary float glass, stronger resistance to thermal breakage than annealed or heat strengthened glass. 2. Once breakage occurs, the glass disintegrates into small cubical fragments, which are relatively harmless to the human body. 3. It withstands the abrupt temperature change of 220 Centigrade. 4. Sizes are produced as per customer request.
