Tempered glass has been widely used in the fields of aviation, construction, automobiles and home appliances since its invention. It has evolved from the initial safety protection glass to building envelopes, structural materials, and main materials for automobiles, electronic products, and furniture. 1
1. Aviation field
The aerospace field was one of the earliest areas where the tempered glass was used. Aircraft glass is generally a composite structure, that is, organic and inorganic composite laminated glass with organic glass; all-day machine composite laminated glass with inorganic glass; or electrical heating, anti-icing, and demisting glass, stealth glass, etc. coated on the glass surface. Tempered glass has high impact resistance, and composite glass can withstand the impact of birds with a speed of 550km/h.
2. Construction field
Modern buildings have higher and higher requirements for glass, and they have shifted from simple lighting requirements to multi-functional requirements such as safety, energy-saving, aesthetics, sound insulation, and large-scale. Tempered glass is widely used in modern architecture due to its safety performance. In order to ensure personal safety, many countries have put forward certain requirements for the safety of glass used in buildings, requiring that glass windows, glass doors, glass barriers, glass partitions, bathroom glass, stair guard glass, etc. of public buildings must be safety glass. Tempered glass has high impact strength and good thermal stability, so it is widely used in building glass components, greenhouses, and ceiling glass. Tempered glass is used as an unsupported shield on building stairs, and tempered glass is also used as a load-bearing material on the overall structure of the overpass. The advantage of using the toughness of tempered glass is also that the glass is designed into a tower-shaped support column and a shaped base.
3. Automotive industry
The development of automobiles drives the development and use of tempered glass. Automobile glass has developed from the original thick sheet tempering to thin tempering, coating, and special-shaped tempering. The novel car requires beautiful glass, safety, energy-saving, and comfort. The streamlined and integrated design of the car reduces the resistance of the car. The use of coated tempered glass increases the private space and comfort of the car. The low-emission tempered glass reduces the solar energy entering the car in summer and reduces the use of air conditioning.
4. For trains and ships, the windows and doors of trains, ships, and other transportation vehicles are made of tempered, hollow tempered or tempered laminated glass. The front windshield of the train generally uses electric heating tempered laminated glass, and the side windshield uses hollow tempered glass. The high-speed train glass side window adopts curved central control lock film tempered laminated glass. The purpose is to connect with the shape of the car body, reduce the transmission of high-speed train noise into the car, reduce the influence of solar radiant heat on the comfort of the car, and play a role in energy saving. The urban railway train glass is similar to the inter-city train glass, and the newly added barrier glass in the carriages are all tempered glass. Tempered glass is generally used for the front windshield of ships, and tempered glass is used for side windshields. High-speed ships and ships including ocean-going fishing ships, traffic ships, anti-smuggling boats, and hydrological observation ships must use tempered laminated glass in order to withstand the sea. The storm hit without breaking.
