The strength of tempered glass is several times higher than that of ordinary glass. Its bending strength is 3~5 times that of ordinary glass, and its impact strength is 5~10 times that of ordinary glass. It improves the strength and safety at the same time.

The toughened glass is safe to use, and its load-bearing capacity is increased to improve the fragile nature. Even if the toughened glass is damaged, it will appear as small fragments without acute angles, which greatly reduces the damage to the human body. The quenching and heating resistance of toughened glass is 2 to 3 times higher than that of ordinary glass, and it can generally withstand temperature changes of more than 150LC, which has a significant effect on preventing thermal cracking.

Tempered glass is when the high-quality float glass is heated close to the softening point, it is rapidly cooled on the glass surface, so that the compressive stress is distributed on the glass surface, and the tensile stress is in the center layer. Because of the strong and equal compressive stress, the tensile stress generated by the external pressure is offset by the strong compressive stress of the glass, thereby increasing the safety of the glass.
