Heat Tempering is appropriate where compliance to any of the following standards is required.
ANSI Z-26.1 – 1990 for Safety Glazing Materials used in Motor Vehicle Equipment. DOT Certified.
ANSI Z-97.1 – 1984 (rev. 1994) for Safety Glazing Materials used in Buildings.
ASTM C-1036-90 Standard Specification for Flat Glass.
ASTM C-1048-90 Standard Specification for Heat Treated Glass
Minimum Thickness: 3 mm [0.118”]
Maximum Thickness: 19 mm [0.75”]
Minimum Size: 25.4 mm x 25.4 mm [1” x 1”]
Maximum Size: 1219 mm x 3048 mm [48” x 120”]
Glass Types: Soda-lime based materials and borosilicate glass materials
Heat Strengthening is appropriate for many applications and materials where a full temper is not possible or desired due to thickness, size, low thermal expansion rate of the base material, or other application requirements. This process does not produce a full “dicing” pattern when the glass is broken and will not meet the requirements of ANSI Z97.1 or CPSC 16CFR1201. Where appropriate, ASTM-C-1048 “Kind HS” may apply.
