Tempered glass

The tempered glass is obtained through hardening for heat-treatment (tempering). The piece has to be cut according to the requested dimensions and each processing (such as rough edges smoothing, drilling or flare) has to be done before tempering. The tempered glass is about six time more resistant than float glass because its superficial imperfections are kept closed by the combined mechanical tensions, while the internal part is mainly defect-free.
