Feature of clear 12Mm ultra clear float tempered glass


2020-09-23


Clear 12Mm ultra-clear float tempered glass is made by the heating flat glass to just below its softening temperature and suddenly chilling it with jets of cold air. It results in the outer skins under powerful compressive stress and the interior with severe tensile stress. In consequence, the impact applied to the glass will be overcome by the compressional stress on the surfaces to assure the safety of use.

Clear 12Mm ultra-clear float tempered glass also named extra clear glass. It is manufactured in the same manner as ordinary float glass with a large percentage (approximately 90%) of the iron content removed. This process lessens the inherent green tinge evident in normal standard float glass. This difference can predominately be seen when viewing the glass on its edge, when many panels are stacked together or when coated on one side in light colors.

Clear 12Mm ultra-clear float tempered glass is a safety glass. Tempered glass is actually a kind of prestressed glass. In order to increase the strength of the glass, chemical, or physical methods are usually used to form compressive stress on the surface of the glass. When the glass is subjected to external force, the surface stress is first offset, thereby improving the bearing capacity and enhancing the resistance of the glass itself. Wind pressure, cold, nd heat, impact, and so on. Note that it is distinguished from FRP.
