Hardened glass ESG:

Hardened Glass ESG is made on the basis of ordinary glass (float type) as well as soft and tough coat glass, decorative glass and tinted glass. Glass is hardened in the process involving glass heating to temperature of 620-680 °C and then cooled with compressed air. As a result, compressive stresses arise in the surface layer, which greatly increases the strength of glass. Hardened glass ESG is several times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness, and if broken it shatters into small pieces with blunt edges, not sharp needles. Hardened glass can be used everywhere where the rules require the use of safety glazing. It is used in construction, as well as e.g. for production of car glass.

Hardened glass ESG:

  • high resistance to mechanical stress,
  • lower risk of injury thanks to the properties of pieces,
  • higher resistance to rapid changes in ambient temperature.

Production capacity:

effector hardened glass is manufactured using the most advanced technologies: LISEC and GLASTON.

In Lisec technology, during the hardening process, the glass sheet is put at a right angle on air cushion (not on the rolls, as in a traditional furnace) which prevents the waviness of glass effect (this effect distorts the image).
