Tempering Glass

Glass Tempering Applications and Capabilities

Cincinnati Gasket & Industrial Glass specializes in tempering glass for a wide range of applications. Tempering glass involves a thermal process in which the glass is subjected to heat to its softening point. It is then cooled rapidly to give it high strength. In addition to strength, benefits that the process of tempering glass offers include high edge strength and resistance to thermal breakage. Fully tempering glass also provides an additional benefit that enhances safety. When certain types of glass is tempered and breaks, it fragments into small blunt pieces which curtail the chance of injury.
