This goes on to ensure a maximum strength of the glazing of your interior door. And what is tempering of glass? Simply put, in the process of tempering, the glass is heated to over 600 degrees (the industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius) and then quickly cooled off. But before it gets to that stage, any sheet of glass that is to be tempered is meticulously inspected. The purpose of the check is to determine whether the sheet has any defects that could lead to breakage. The whole tempering process has a healing effect on the glass. Through that process, tempered glass becomes about 4 times stronger than ordinary glass. And while the latter shatters into thousands of sharp and dangerous pieces, if broken, tempered glass forms granules that pose less of a danger to you and your family.
