Features and advantage of clear tempered glass for greenhouse


Clear tempered glass is made by heating ordinary glass to its softening point and then suddenly cooling down to form compression in the surface layer of the glass, which processing makes full tempered glass above 4 times stronger than annealed glass of equal thickness.

Clear tempered glass for greenhouse and building is a high performance low iron glass with high solar energy transmittance. When toughened, its strength and durability make it the ideal choice for crystalline silicon photovoltaic application as well as for solar thermal collectors. In the hurricane, heavy rain, hail, and another harsh environment can still maintain excellent performance. It is mainly used on solar panels because of its super light transmittance rate. It is made of unique formulation and high quality material. By adopting international first-rate production technology and equipment.

Clear tempered glass for greenhouse and building is made by the heating flat glass to just below its softening temperature (650 °c) 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 compressive stress on the surfaces to assure the safety of use. It is ideal for areas with high wind loads and areas where human contacts are an important consideration.

Features of clear tempered glass for greenhouse

1. 5 times harder than ordinary float glass, stronger resistance to thermal breakage than annealed or heat strengthened glass.
2. Once breakage occurs, the glass disintegrates into small cubical fragments, which are relatively harmless to the human body.
3. It withstands abrupt temperature change of 220 Centigrade.
4. Sizes are produced as per customer request. Once tempered, it can not be cut down.

Advantage of clear tempered glass for greenhouse

1.Rich in a wide range of color tones and gives a striking new image to the outlook of any building.
2. Clear tempered glass for the greenhouse and building balance the transmittance of lights and make the room more comfortable.
3 Visible lights reflectance and intercepts solar energy., reducing the air-conditioning cost.

Applications of clear tempered glass for greenhouse

1. It is the preferred screen glass for the external wall decoration for office buildings, hotels, and departments.
(Doors and windows of Building; Curtain wall of tower blocks and building; Cultural facilities and artistical decorations)
2. It is also a good decorative glass. We have different kinds of thickness and colors for your choosing
