Chemical Strengthening

EuropTec USA has multiple large baths for chemical strengthening production volumes in North America which allows us to strengthen glass up to 36” x 50” (914 x 1,270mm) in size. Our processes are all fully temperature controlled and optimized to produce high quality product for the display industry.

 

Chemical strengthening also known as IOX reduces impact and scratch-related damage and creates a bending strength much greater than that of normal float glass. The process is available for glass thicknesses 0.5mm to 6mm and is ideal for increasing glass strength while keeping optical properties unchanged and the the glass as flat as possible.
