Product Details

Glass used in architecture today commonly includes clear and tinted glass substrates, low-emissivity and solar-control coatings, decorative ceramic-frit patterns and safety glazing considerations that require glass to be heat-treated. Heat- strengthened and fully tempered glass is designed to meet increased thermal and mechanical stresses, or other specified physical criteria. Tempered glass is also used to meet safety glazing code requirements. As a result of the heat-treating process, iridescence, or what is often referred to as a quench pattern/mark, strain pattern or anisotropy, may be visible in heat-strengthened and fully tempered glass under certain polarized lighting conditions.
