The tempering process strengthens glass four to five times the strength of regular glass. Tempering glass combines strength, security & safety. If broken the glass shatters into many small, dull pieces of glass rather than sharp and jagged, potentially harmful pieces of glass. Our tempering process meets or exceeds the safety codes of both the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z97.1 as well as the Consumer Products Safety Commission (16 CFR 1201)
The laminating process strengthens the glass by using a PVB interlayer in between the two sheets of glass. This process makes for a single sheet of extremely durable, securitized and efficient piece of glass. In the rare event the glass breaks, the laminating effect will keep the glass from shattering, vis-à-vis a car windshield. The laminating process can be used as an alternative to tempering.
