Brief introduction of tempered glass shower door
Tempered Glass uses the thermal process to enhance the basic strength of float glass. It is float glass (annealed glass) heated to near its softening point and then rapidly quenched by directing jets of cold air onto its surface. As the surfaces cool quicker than the core, the surfaces are placed in compression. This tempering process produces highly desirable conditions of induced stress, which results in additional strength, resistance to thermal stress and impact resistance. This process, however, does not alter the visible light and solar radiant heat properties of the glass. Wind pressure, foreign object impact and thermal stresses on other applied loads must first overcome this compression before there is a possibility of breakage.
Features of tempered glass
1. Safety: Tempered glass is hard to break. Even broken, it will become lots of mini pieces which will not cause hurt to people.
2. High intensity: The strength is 3-5 times of ordinary annealed glass;
3. Heat stability: Tempered glass also has excellent stability under large difference in temperature (within 300C).
With high quality and reasonable price, Weihua glass is used in many major buildings and our projects are dotted in many provinces, like Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, etc.
