Buy Glass 8mm Toughened glass is 4 to 5 times stronger than annealed glass of the same 8mm thickness and is best designed for the most important applications for protection.
Because of its increased strength, Toughened Glass allows architects and builders far greater scope in their use of glass in buildings.
8mm Toughened glass is produced to BS EN 12150, the product is a a soda lime silicate glass intended to be used in buildings and construction work.
8mm Toughened Glass is manufactured by subjecting cut to size panes of glass to a heating and cooling treatment whereby high compressive stresses are set up at the surfaces with balancing tensile stresses in the centre.
The high compressive surface stresses give the glass its increased strength i.e toughened glass.
When / if broken 8mm toughened glass will break into lots of small usually blunt pieces making it much safer than annealed (untoughened) glass which breaks in to large usual sharp pieces.

BuyGlass.Co pride ourselves on creating a beautiful end product. With edge polishing there are a few things to consider before you purchase & when evaluating the glass you receive.
Depending on the process used, the edge finish can vary slightly between panels. All BuyGlass.Co edge polishing is finished to an exceptional standard and fully QC'd before release.
If you require a uniform finish across all pieces then please contact us after the order is placed.
Otherwise we will process the polishing using whichever process we choose, and although generally this would mean all glass uses the same polishing technique there are certain times when we may use various methods.
We use multiple methods for creating laminated glass. CIP, SGP, PVB & EVA are totally different processes which produce very similar results. CIP however, due to the injection process, has a faint area at the perimeter which can be seen upon closer inspection.
** WE GENERALLY USE PVB **
If you would prefer any particular method then you must let us know prior to production or else, at our discretion, we will use any method.
