Heat Tempering

More products are using heat-tempered glass as a result of its safety characteristics. Like chemically-strengthened glass, heat-tempered glass has a much stronger bending strength than standard glass. However – unlike chemically-strengthened glass – its brittle nature causes it to shatter into small oval-shaped pieces when broken which eliminates the danger caused by large sharp shards.

Europtec’s heat tempered glass adheres to GANA Specification 76-12-10a Revision 1 and is of high optical quality and flatness designed for use in display applications.

Heat tempering is available for glass 3mm and thicker, and its unique properties make it ideal for both small and large displays requiring high impact resistance and safety from glass shards. If you require strengthening for glass under 3mm thick please see chemical strengthening.
