Tempered Glass
Tempered Glass is produced by subjecting annealed glass to controlled thermal conditions. By reheating and rapidly cooling the glass, the edges and surfaces experience compressive stress while the core experiences tensile stress. The stress on the surfaces compresses all the surface flaws.

4 times strength of annealed glass

A form of safety glass as it breaks into small pieces instead of large shards which reduces major injuries.

Resistance to thermal stress
Able to better withstand sudden changes in temperature compared to annealed glass.

Quality Standard
Tested by PSB Corporation to be in accordance to SS341:2001.
Heat Soak Testing
Heat Soak Test is commonly used to minimize spontaneous breakages in tempered glass. Tempered Glass may be subjected to spontaneous breakages after installation due to the inevitable presence of an impurity - Nickel Sulphite in its raw materials. The Heating, Holding and Cooling phases of the test will determine the Tempered Glass’ susceptibility to spontaneous breakages after installation, thus reducing the risk of breakages on site.
