  TOUGHENED GLASS

The glass is produced by subjecting annealed glass to a process of controlled heating and cooling which produces high compression in the surface and compensating tension in the centre. For this reason, toughened glass cannot be cut, drilled, surface worked or edge worked. The process gives the glass greatly increased resistance to impact, loading and thermal shock. When toughened glass breaks it is reduced to comparatively small harmless pieces. Toughened glass is five times stronger and more flexible than ordinary glass.
