Tempered glass is sometimes referred to as toughened glass as well. In this article we will examine the qualities of tempered glass and explain its common uses for windows and offer some buying tips. We also will give a comparison between tempered glass and regular glass.
Tempered glass is roughly four times stronger than regular glass. It is meant for applications that may withstand severe pressure that normal glass cannot handle without shattering. It is often known as safety glass because when it does shatter, it breaks apart in tiny square like pieces that are not as sharp and dangerous as regular shattered glass shards which can be pointed, sharp and extremely dangerous during both breaking and clean up afterwards.
