Heat-Treated Glass

Heat-strengthened

Designed to resist thermal stresses, heat-strengthened glass is a flat glass product which has undergone heat-treatment, heating the glass to approximately 1,112⁰ F (600⁰C) and then cooled using jets of air. In this case, the cooling process is slower than it is for tempered glass. The surface of the glass is then locked in a state of compression, and while significantly stronger than annealed is not considered a safety glass. When broken, heat-strengthened glass splits into large sharp pieces like float glass.

Tempered

Tempered glass is a flat glass product which has undergone heat-treatment, heating the glass to approximately 1,112⁰ F (600⁰C), then rapidly cooling the glass. This rapid cooling locks the surface of the glass in a state of compression. This makes it more resistant to mechanical and thermal stresses and gives it the required fragmentation characteristics.
Tempered glass is considered a safety glazing solution, and is produced to meet the criteria set forth in ANSI Z97.1 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201. Tempered glass is 4 to 5 times stronger than annealed float glass and upon impact breaks into small, blunt pieces minimizing risk of serious injury.

The most transparent low-iron glass available today – delivering remarkable clarity and a virtually colorless appearance. With a visible light transmission of 92%, Clearvision floods interior spaces with light and provides outstanding visibility for a range of applications.

High-performance low-e coated glass designed specifically for the architectural market. This spectrally selective glazing allows you to customize the solar heat gain, insulating value, and visible light transmission levels while maintaining your design vision.

The Comfort Select family of residential low-emissivity coated glass products is part of the AGC global technology platform, backed by a history of real world applications.

Well-known as a top-class solar glazing globally, the Stopray range of soft coatings is designed for energy efficient commercial buildings in climate regions that demand high performance in solar control and thermal insulation, combined with a neutral aesthetic.

Stopsol is the most famous coated glass in the world – a brand recognized for its stunning aesthetics due to its combination of brilliant coatings and extended range of colored glass.

Luxclear™ Protect is a coated glass product developed to protect the surface of the glass by preventing corrosion due to contaminants related to water, heat and high humidity. Unlike aftermarket products, the Luxclear™ Protect coating fuses with the glass and permanently seals the glass surface so it will remain clear and new looking for the life of the product.

AGC’s exclusive Solarshield product family offers high-quality tinted products for the commercial and residential markets, as well as the automotive sector. Available in an array of beautiful colors, these tinted glass solutions create an attractive exterior appearance while increasing air conditioning efficiency and comfort, reducing glare, and offering unobstructed views. Made using the float process, Solarshield tinted solutions offer perfectly flat, parallel surfaces and lend themselves to many processing options including single glazing, insulating glazing, tempering, and enameling.

Imagin glass delicately balances translucency and privacy by featuring a design and texture on one (or both) sides of a clear glass sheet. Perfect for doors, shower enclosures, and partitions where privacy is desired, but without restricting the natural flow of light. Choose from an array of geometric or nature-inspired patterns available in a variety of thicknesses and sizes.

With its high-quality acid-etched satin-finish, Matelux strikes the delicate balance between offering privacy while letting in light. Soft to the touch, this translucent glass also comes in a double-sided version, ideal for doors and room dividers. Professionally processed like regular float glass in large sheets to ensure uniformity and continuity results in a homogeneous grain and finish, making it the preferred material to add visual impact to both interior and exterior spaces.

Available in 10 trending colors, this back-painted float glass is covered on one side with a high-quality paint to create a uniform satin-finish that can be used in exterior and interior applications while maintaining very little indoor emissions of VOCs. Matelac T allows fabricators to immediately cut and heat-treat at their processing plant to result in a true enameled glass.

Float glass covered on one side with a high-quality back-paint that must be heat-treated, making Lacobel T a true enameled glass. Lacobel T is the first back-painted glass range that can be immediately cut and tempered by fabricators at their plant, simplifying the production process and accelerating the delivery times. Available in 10 trendsetting colors, this glass is strong, safe, and highly-resistant to heat, thermal shock, and UV, so it’s suitable for use in interior and exterior applications.

Clear float glass is a beautiful, versatile choice when specialty glass is not needed. Clear solutions from AGC offer a wealth of product benefits including outstanding clarity, excellent color neutrality, and high levels of visibility and light transmission. Versatility is the reason why Clear float glass is the glass of choice for applications in the construction, decoration, automotive, and high-tech sectors.
