Tempered or toughened glass is created through a process of heat and chemical treatments that compress the surface of the glass while introducing tension to the core. It is this duality that allows toughened glass to excel when it comes to performance within the following areas:
- Strength – Resistance to breaking and cracking
- Thermal Resistance – Able to tolerate a wide range of temperatures without fracturing, eliminating the possibility of dangerous lacerations
- Safety – Will crumble into relatively harmless granules when broken
As it is not feasible to cut toughened glass after the tempering process, each Armourplate® rear and side glass product is cut and shaped beforehand to ensure the perfect fit, regardless of your vehicle type. For a tempered glass product that provides safety through strength, trust Armourplate® glass and the autoglass fitters who install it.
