Tempered glass is perfect for projects that require strong safety glass. Tempered glass is safer than regular glass as it will shatter into thousands of small pieces when broken or cracked.
Tempered glass has been proven to be about five times stronger than regular glass. This is due to the fact that during its production, a controlled heating processed is used. This process works by placing the glass into a tempering oven that is set to extreme heat. This heat treating process places the outer surface of the glass in tension which resists breakage better than annealed glass. The glass heats up and then is removed and cooled down quickly.
