GLAShern's Glass Strengthening Methods
Chemically Strengthened Glass
chemical tempering of glass
Here, we apply chemicals following the production of the glass to ensure that its surface strength is significantly improved.
When it comes to producing chemically tempered glass, the objective is to sink it into a solution of alkali salts. This action forms a film around the glass surface that allows it to chemically exchange between small and larger radius ions that lie within the solution.
Of course, it is important to take significant care in this process as the amount of larger ions squeezed into the glass surface might end up being disproportionate to the glass surface pressure.
So, take great care to ensure proper proportioning and see to it that ion exchange depth plays a significant part in overall strength performance.
Heat Strengthened Glass

Besides chemical strengthening, heat strengthening is another popular glass strengthening method you could keep an eye on. Here, the objective is to apply heat to the glass until a viable temperature, then cool the glass off. This action ensures that the glass surface is able to quickly shrink, thus forming compressive stress.
In a few cases, you could find that the glass middle area cools slower than the other parts. If this happens, tensile stress is developed around the glass, making it even stronger. Still, the general rule of thumb is that a higher level of cooling strength leads to a stronger glass profile.

Glass Strengthening Benefits
Custom Fabrication Services
Glass strengthening provides significant benefits to the viability and durability of your glass.
Strengthened glass is capable of withstanding greater levels of pressure and temperature fluctuations, thus working better in industries where exposure to harsh conditions is more likely.
Besides this, strengthened glass is also known to be stronger and safer, providing an overall better user experience for people who value protection above everything else.
