Process

Tempered glass starts life as float glass. Float glass, when shattered breaks into large pieces and can be harmful; it is therefore unsuitable for applications. In the tempering process, the surfaces of the glass are heated in a furnace nearly over 670°C.

The hot glass is then cooled rapidly by a blast of air over a period of between 3 and 10 seconds. As a result, the surfaces shrink, and tensile stresses develop on the surfaces.
 

Benefits

Tempered glass is 5 times stronger glass than normal glass. It provides greater thermal strength. It offers increased resistance to both sudden temperature changes and temperature differentials up to 250°C (as against 40°C of normal glass).

Tempered glass is difficult to break. However if it does break under high impact, only small fragments without any sharp edges are formed.
