Heat strengthened glass is a type of tempered glass that is created by the heating standard annealed glass to a specific temperature and then cooling it rapidly. This process results in heat strengthened glass that is stronger and more resistant to breakage than regular annealed glass while maintaining its original appearance.
Unlike fully tempered glass, heat strengthened glass does not shatter into small pieces when broken. Instead, it breaks into larger, more jagged pieces that are less likely to cause injury. This makes it a popular choice for applications where safety is a concern, such as building facades, doors, partitions, and skylights. Similarly, the heat strengthened glass is ideal for high-traffic areas and areas prone to natural disasters.
In addition, heat strengthened glass is also more resistant to thermal stress, which is caused by temperature changes in the glass. This means that heat strengthened glass can withstand higher temperatures without breaking or cracking, making it an ideal choice for areas exposed to direct sunlight or extreme weather conditions.
In terms of thickness, heat strengthened glass typically ranges from 3mm to 12mm, and thicker ones are generally available for specialized applications. And professional tempered glass building glass factory will offer more customized options to meet specific design requirements.
