Heat-strengthened glass (HS glass) is only endowed with safety characteristics when laminated to another pane of glass. As a result, HS glass is predominantly used as laminated safety glass when greater flexural strength and temperature resistance are required. Examples of the use of HS glass are canopies, glass facades with absorbent sun protection coatings or as an element of laminated safety glass overhead glazing.
Advantages of HS glass
- Greater flexural strength
- High temperature resistance
- Increased residual load capability
