Glass tempering is special thermal processing to increase its durability by 5-7 times. Tempered glass advantages include safety (it does not form sharp splinters when broken), thermal stability (thermal shock resistance) and mechanical strength. Such glass is perfectly suited for manufacturing doors, stairs, show-windows or tables.
Once the glass is tempered, it can be painted, glued over with film or photo-printed. Machining, however, is performed before the glass is put into furnace. Optical properties do not change in the course of tempering.
Tempering is performed on coated, transparent and frosted glass, including certain types of decorative glass, as well as glass coated with ceramic paint.
Altis-Glass production facilities work with flat glass that varies in thickness (4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 mm) from world’s top manufacturers, such as AGC, Guardian, Pilkington and Saint-Gobain.
Our works use various machining methods, such as grinding (GE), polishing (PE), blunting (SE). We cut glass of any form and shape (4 to 12 mm) to be tempered, as well as perform hole drilling (4 to 100 mm), countersinking, rounding of glass corners and fixture cutouts.
The maximum size of glass to be tempered at our works is 2100 x 3600 mm, and the minimum size is 300 x 300 mm. We work with glass from 4 mm to 12 mm thick.
