When it comes to glass – the stronger the better! PSG’s Saif Tough, tempered safety glass is 4 to 5 times stronger than the annealed glass of the same size and thickness., making it extremely necessary for the fabrication of facade systems, skylights, and shopfronts – where a lot of strength is required to withstand the applied force.
A tempered or toughened glass is a type of safety glass manufactured with the aid of heat or chemicals used to strengthen the glass. This process is called ‘tempering’. If it breaks, tempered glass shatters into rounded cubes rather than pointy shards, causing little harm to people around and causing no serious injury. Tempered glass is a must when it comes to manufacturing fire and bullet safety glass as it is 100 times stronger and can resist quite a high temperature.
