What are the differences between laminated and tempered glass?
These glasses are considered safety glasses for buildings, but their strength differs due to different manufacturing techniques.
Laminated glass is made from two pieces of regular or tempered glass with the transparent plastic film sandwiched in the middle. Initially, laminated glasses were used for car windshields in order to reduce injuries during accidents.
Nowadays laminated glasses are commonly used for the windows of tall buildings, skylights, balconies, frameless glass railings, etc.
Pros and Cons of Laminated glass.
- Lamination technology in this glass provides soundproofing and protects the UV radiations by 97%
- One of the best things about laminated glass is that it can be easily repaired using adhesive resin.
- Laminated glass is more expensive than tempered glass, so you have to spend more on it.
Tempered glass is a type of glass that has undergone the Tempering process, which involves heating and then cooling it to make it safe. It is a great option if you’re on a budget.
Pros and cons of Tempered glass
- Similar to laminated glass, What makes tempered glass a safety glass is that it is significantly more durable than ordinary glass and is designed to break into less harmful pebble-like pieces instead of sharp and jagged shards.
- One of the main disadvantages of Tempered glass is that it cannot be repaired. It also provides strength, durability, and resistance.
