Tempered glass is a popular construction material used both for specific purposes and in everyday life as a replacement for conventional glass.

Manufacturing features

To give the glass strength, it is heated to + 500-600°C, and then sharply cooled. Molecules in its compositions are transformed, becoming more resistant to thermal and mechanical stress. It is also important that this glass is able to withstand higher static loads. That is why it is often used for the manufacture of furniture (tables, countertops, partitions and other things).

Advantages of tempered glass:

* Resistance to mechanical stress and temperature changes (-150 to + 300°C)
* the price of the tempered glass today can be quite affordable, it is not something like elite and rare material
* Safe to use and break
* Excellent sound insulation qualities
* Vibration resistance

Types of tempered glass and its applications

Tempered glass can be flat and bent, matte and tinted, patterned, energy-saving; for the production of specific types of glass can be used.

Due to this diversity, the material is used in a variety of spheres:

• when creating shop windows, windows and door structures;
* in the manufacturing process of furniture and interior elements
* in the construction of greenhouses, winter gardens
* in the arrangement of roofs
* when glazing in baths and saunas

One of the biggest European producers is a Russian glass factory Akma, where you can order tempered glass at affordable and wholesale prices. The products are made of high quality materials using the latest technology and the most modern modern equipment.
