heat-strengthened glass

heat-strengthened glass

Annealed glass: (a) that has been cut to size, (b) heated to near its softening point, and (c) then cooled faster than normal to place the outside surfaces and edges in compression and the interior in tension; is about twice as strong as annealed glass.
