Tempered safety glass

Tempered safety glass is the basis for many flat-glass applications, inside and outside. TG-ESG® is an excellent product for monolithic safety glazing as well as for further processing to make TG-THERM® multi-functional insulating glass or TG-­PROTECT® laminated safety glass.

TG-ESG® is used in many areas of application. It is suitable for facades and shop window glazing as well as doors or partitions. Colored by lacquering and digital-printing or specially coated, it opens up new opportunities as a functional design element.

By tempering, a thermal treatment process while the glass is heated up and then specificly cooled down, it receives its special properties. Tempered safety glass offers increased bending strength and thermal stability as well as enhanced shock and impact resistance. A further advantage is, that in case of glass breakage the glass shatters into small, blunt-edged pieces and reduces in this way the risk of injury.
