Heat-Treated Glass

Velocity-Product-HeatTreated-Isolated-Final-1

Heat-treated glass has passed through a tempering furnace to alter its strength characteristics. Heat-treated glass can be heat-strengthened (HS) or fully tempered (FT). HS glass is twice as strong as annealed glass of the same thickness, size and type. If broken, it will break into large shards similar to annealed glass. FT glass is typically four times stronger than annealed glass and two times as strong as heat-strengthened glass of the same thickness, size and type. If broken, fully tempered glass will break into fairly small pieces, reducing the chance for injury.
