Learn More about Laminated Glass

Tempered glass, often referred to as safety glass, possesses increased strength and impact resistance compared to raw glass.The rapid heating and cooling of the glass deliberately adds stress to the glass, by placing the exterior of the surface in compression and the inner core of the glass in tension. This stress increases the surface compression of tempered glass and makes it harder to break. When tempered glass does break, its increased stress causes it to break into many small pieces that are less likely to cause serious injury.
