Toughened Glass

Order superior-quality toughened glass from Osborn Glass, available in thicknesses of 4 to 19mm.

Why Toughened (Tempered) Glass is So Safe

Toughened – or tempered – glass is much safer than regular/un-toughened glass. In the event of breakage, toughened glass will not shatter into randomly-shaped shards, which are more likely to cause injury. Instead, toughened glass ensures the glass shatters into small, granular pieces.

Thermally/Chemically Toughened Glass Production

Toughened glass is manufactured using thermal or chemical processes, making it considerably stronger than normal glass products.

The glass must be cut to size prior to toughening since it cannot be processed/cut in any way afterwards.

Laminated-Toughened Safety Glass

Toughened glass may also be laminated. The lamination process involves adding a plastic ‘interlayer’ (typically of polyvinyl butyral – PVB) between the two glass panels. Various materials can be laminated in this plastic layer, ranging from dried flowers to patterned fabrics.
