Tempered glass is strengthened through the process of heat or chemical exposure and is designed to balance internal stress; therefore, tempered glass is 4x stronger than annealed glass and better able to resist stress of high temperatures (200°F – 300°F), which would cause annealed glass to crack. If tempered glass does break, its unique fracture pattern causes it to disassemble into granular chunks like rock salt, as opposed to annealed glass which shatters into dangerous shards. Because tempered glass is much stronger than other glass types, it is used in many applications including: shower doors, glass doors, patio tables, refrigerator trays, among other uses requiring safety glass.
Nashua Glass can order your tempered glass to your specifications. Once tempered glass has been processed, it may not be cut or drilled.
