|Process of Manufacture|
Templex is the product that results when a glass undergoes a thermal process in which it is uniformly warmed to a temperature superior to the softening point, around 700 º C and then it's abruptly cooled down in its surface, which creates a superficial layer under great tension with balanced polarisation. This layer gives the glass new properties ad it becomes a product completely different from the glass, which originated it.
A very important property of Templex is that it breaks in small pieces, with a minimum capability of cut, so it's highly recommended in items in which there is risk of break, such as is self-propulsion, sport facilities, street furniture, partition screens and fronts not framed, even in domestic furniture it's compulsory its instalment in some countries of the EU.
In order to manufacture the Templex, Cristalglass is equipped with a modern horizontal furnace with capability to temper pieces up to 3800x2150 mm in the highest thickness, achieving an excellent degree of planimetry either in the vane or in the bumpy texture of the surface.
The characteristics of the Templex are:
- Higher resistance to the thermal shock
- Higher mechanic resistance to compression
- Higher mechanic resistance to flexion
- Higher mechanic resistance to torsion
- Higher mechanic resistance to impact
