Also known as a standard sheet of float glass, annealing is actually a process of slowly cooling glass to relieve internal stresses after it is formed. Annealed glass is the most common glass used in residential property windows, table top glass and cabinet door glass. Care should be taken when choosing locations to install annealed glass as unlike toughened glass, traditional annealed glass will break off into large, sharp shards when broken causing obvious safety risks.
Toughened Safety Glass
Up to five times stronger than annealed glass of the same thickness except it fractures into relatively small harmless particles when broken. Glass that is 4mm or more in thickness can be toughened giving it a greater resistance to thermal stress and can be subjected to temperatures ranging from 70°C to 290°C. Toughened glass is typically used in bathroom windows, shower screens, coffee tables and glass sliding doors.
Consists of two or more sheets of glass bonded together by vacuum and heat with an interlayer of either PVB, EVA or XIR.
