Benefits and Features of Toughened Profilit Glass

All of our Pilkington Profilit toughened glass is heat soaked tested after the toughening process has been undertaken to a maximum length of 7.5m. This allows the Profilit glass to increase its strength and safe breakage performance in order to meet our clients demanding requirements.

  • Toughened glass is up to 5 times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness
  • Such glass has greater resistance to sudden changes in the temperatures
  • It also allows much greater resistance to impact
  • It has better deflection properties
  • Greater tolerance of repetitive load variations than ordinary glass before fracture occurs
  • It is less likely to break under force
  • If breakage does occurs, the glass shatters into many hundreds of tiny pellets which are unlikely to cause any harm
  • Toughened glass is able to be manufactured in various tints or patterns.

APPLICATIONS

  • Low level glazing
  • Shop fronts
  • Staircases
  • Areas of glass under thermal stress
