Correctly identify tempered glass and ordinary glass

- Jul 27, 2017 -

Glass, is an indispensable part of the doors and windows, the early construction of doors and windows are single-layer flat glass, the development of the current tempered glass, insulating glass, laminated glass, bullet-proof glass. Most of today's doors and windows products use tempered glass.

First, how to distinguish between tempered glass and ordinary glass?

1, look at the glass logo

See whether the glass corner of the steel logo, playing 3c mark (scraping the kind of) are basically tempered glass. The processing procedure of the tempered glass is to cut the ordinary float glass into the required size, and then grind, clean, and press the country to certify the ccc mark with the ink. The glass after the finished product is not cut or processing. And ink in the general situation after the high temperature is scraping off. (If your home glass on the 3C logo can be wiped by hand, it can be concluded that the basic fake glass)

2, to see if the slight deformation

From the side to see whether the glass is slightly deformed, because the glass through the high temperature firing, there will be a slight deformation of the phenomenon, which can only be seen from the side of the glass, the front is generally not easy to see.

3, look at the glass fragments

Ordinary glass is broken after the large sheet, sharp angle, easy to hurt. Tempered glass is broken after the granular, corners are blunt, not easy to hurt.

Second, the tempered glass by shape points:

Flat tempered glass and curved tempered glass.

Generally more commonly used flat tempered glass thickness of 4,5,6,8,10,12,15,19 mm eight; more commonly used surface tempered glass thickness of 5,6,8,10 mm four.

Third, the tempered glass by process points:

Physical steel and chemical steel.

Physical tempered glass will be ordinary flat glass or float glass in a specific process conditions, the quenching method or air-cooled quenching method from processing. Chemical tempered glass is the ordinary flat glass or float glass through the ion exchange method, the glass surface molecules change, so that the glass surface to form a layer of stress layer processing processing.

Fourth, the characteristics of tempered glass:

1, with high impact strength

Higher than ordinary glass 4 to 5 times; bending strength, 5 times higher than ordinary flat glass; thermal stability, and can withstand the temperature difference of 200 ℃; and smooth, transparent, non-cutting and so on. In case of super impact damage, the fragments were scattered small granular, no sharp edges and corners, it is also known as safety glass.

2, tempered glass in the steel will have a slight thickness after thinning.

The reason for the thinning is because the glass in the hot melt softening, after a strong wind to make it quickly cooling, so that the glass inside the crystal gap becomes smaller, the pressure becomes larger, so the glass after the steel than in the steel before the thin.
