Tempered glass is a glass which has been submitted to thermal treatment during which it has been heated to about 680 degrees and afterward cooled rapidly.
This process gives tempered glass its proportions of extra strength against breakage and extra resistance against heat. When an impact of a certain object penetrates the surface of the tempered glass the tension in the surface is released and the glass shatters into many small harmless pieces which will not endanger the lives of human being.
The thermal treatment can be obtained vertically, in this event one of the glass edges will show tong marks due to suspension. Thermal treatment also slightly influence the flatness of the glass within a tolerance of 2 to 3 mm/ 1m. the sizes themselves are also subject to a tolerance of (+ - ) 3mm.
In this regard, Saudi Lamino Co. Ltd. Is proud of having the most sophisticated tempering machine producing flat tempered glass, curved tempered glass as well as automotive backlites and sidelites of over 1200 different models.
