Tempered glass and Insulating glass


Due to the transmission of light and insulation of thermal, glass is an indispensable component of modern architecture, as well as the essential component of aluminum doors and windowsGlass doors and windows have different functions because of types of glass. Due to various demands, tempered glass, Insulating glass and others are invented. Let me Share with you these commonly used glasses.


Tempered Glass


Tempered glass calls aggrandizement glass too.The toughening of glass was started in France in 1874 and widely used in modern buildings.

A. security

When the glass is damaged by external force, the debris will become a honeycomb-like obtuse-angled small particle, which is not easy to cause serious damage to the human body.


B. high strength

The impact strength of tempered glass of the same thickness is 3 to 5 times that of ordinary glass, and the bending strength is 3 to 5 times that of ordinary glass.

C. thermal stability

Tempered glass has good thermal stability, and can withstand a temperature difference of three times that of ordinary glass, and can withstand a temperature difference of 300 °C.

D.  Advantages

The first is that the strength is several times higher than that of ordinary glass and it is resistant to bending.

The second is safe use, and its increased carrying capacity improves the fragile nature. Even if the tempered glass breaks down, it will show small fragments without sharp angles, and the damage to the human body is greatly reduced. The quenching and rapid heat properties of tempered glass are 3 to 5 times higher than that of ordinary glass, and generally can withstand temperature changes of more than 250 degrees, which has obvious effects on preventing thermal cracking. It is one of the safety glasses. To ensure the safety of qualified materials for high-rise buildings.


Insulating glass


Insulated glass was invented by Americans in 1865. It is a new type of building material with good heat insulation, sound insulation, beautiful appearance and reduced building weight.


A. The insulating glass is composed of two or more layers of flat glass. Two or more pieces of glass are bonded and sealed with sealing strips and glass strips by high-strength and high-air-tight composite adhesive. The middle is filled with dry gas, and the frame is filled with a desiccant to ensure the dryness of the air between the glass sheets.


B. Insulating glass can be used in 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 mm thick sheets of original glass, and the thickness of the air layer can be spaced at 6, 9 and 12 mm.

C. The thermal conductivity of glass is 27 times that of air. As long as the insulating glass is sealed, the insulating glass is optimally insulated.

D . advantage

The biggest advantage of insulating glass is energy saving and environmental protection. Modern building energy consumption is mainly air conditioning and lighting. The former accounts for 55%, while the latter accounts for 23%. Glass is the thinnest and most heat-transferable material in building exterior walls. Insulating glass Because the desiccant in the aluminum frame passes through the gap above the frame to keep the air in the glass cavity dry for a long time, the temperature insulation performance is excellent. It also has a high degree of sound insulation.
