Give us a call on the dimensions you need and we will cut your glass to size
Toughened glass normally starts out as float gloss. This, when shattered, breaks down into dagger shaped pieces and this can cause real problems for you at a later date. Before you run the glass through the toughening process, you need to cut it down to size. If the glass was cut in its toughened state then it would shatter so this is a very important concept to understand. During the toughening process, the surface to the glass is normally heated in a furnace. The temperatures can vary at times but normally the glass is supposed to reach over 600°C before it is removed. When the glass has reached this temperature, it is then cooled down and this is done via blasts of cold air. The surface to the glass then shrinks and tensile stress then appears on the surface. When the glass cools down fully, it also contracts, this then leads to residual compressive stress on the surface of the glass.
The tension zone in the middle of the glass actually takes up around 60% of the sectional area and this helps to improve the durability and the strength of the glass in general. On top of this, toughened glass has a much greater strength when compared to other types of glass because it has a much higher level of resistance to thermal shock and even thermal stress when compared. It also has a higher level of tensile strength and flexural as well.
Of course, it is important to understand that if you do have a higher level of thermal expansion then you will then have a lower level of thermal conductivity. The more stress you have, the stronger the glass is, and the toughening process only takes a couple of minutes in total. This can be applied to most glasses, but when you have tempered glass, you will find that this shatters into more pieces when it has broken. These pieces are not as sharp when compared to standard glass, so they come with added benefits in that respect as well.
