- Safety: Tempered glass breaks into small, circular “pebbles” instead of jagged shards, which allows it to be used in areas such as high wind or extreme use locations. It is the main reason this type of glass is used in car windshields.
- Strength and Durability: It is exceptionally strong and can withstand strong weather changes easily, be it strong wind pressure, tornado, or heavy rains. It is much stronger than regular glass, hence the reason such applications include windows in skyscrapers, car windows and table tops.
- Quality: The tempering process does not affect the transparency of the glass, which provides a clear view that is necessary for the window, table, etc. while maintaining structural rigidity.
- Heat Resistant: Tempered glass can resist temperature up to 200-300 degrees! Since heat is applied during the development process, the molecules become more resistant to higher temperatures.
- Designs and Variety: Watermark Living offers a variety of designs and patterns that will fit in any living space.
Do you know about TEMPERED GLASS?
Tempered glass is one of two kinds of safety glass regularly used in applications in which standard glass could pose a potential danger. Tempered glass is 4 to 5 times stronger than standard glass and does not break into sharp shards when it fails. Tempered glass is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder than normal glass.
The special processing of tempered glass causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pebbles when broken. This eliminates the danger of sharp edges. Due to this property, along with its strength, tempered glass is often referred to as safety glass.
The thermal process that cures tempered glass also makes it heat resistant. Tempered glass is used to make carafes in automatic coffee makers and the windows in ovens. Computer screens, skylights, door windows, tub enclosures and shower doors are more examples of places you will find tempered glass. Building codes also require the windows of many public structures to be made of tempered glass.
