Heat strengthened glass
Model: Heat strengthened glass
Designed to resist thermal stresses, heat-strengthened glass is a flat glass product which has undergone heat-treatment, heating the glass to approximately 1,112⁰ F (600⁰C) and then cooled using jets of air. In this case, the cooling process is slower than it is for tempered glass. The surface of the glass is then locked in a state of compression, and while significantly stronger than annealed is not considered a safety glass. When broken, heat-strengthened glass splits into large sharp pieces like float glass.
Most of the glass produced by AGC can be heat-strengthened: Energy Select, Comfort Select and Stopray Vision low-emissivity glass is available post-temperable.
