The Key Features of Annealed Glass

When making annealed glass it is slowly cooled, allowing it to release the internal pressure that builds up during the heating process. This process is used to increase the durability of the glass, making it less likely to crack or shatter and increasing its overall strength.

Annealed glass is different from tempered glass due to the process in which it is cooled. Although it is stronger than glass that did not undergo a special cooling process, it is weaker than tempered glass overall. It also differs from tempered glass in the way that it breaks; tempered glass breaks into small pieces that pose minimal risk, while annealed glass will break into large shards.

Knowing that annealed glass is generally weaker than tempered glass, you might be wondering why you would choose it. There are several key features that make it an excellent choice for certain applications. First of all, the annealing process is cheaper than the tempering process, which makes annealed glass more affordable. Second, annealed glass may have less overall strength, but it actually is more durable at the edges than tempered glass; this means that it is the superior choice in applications where the edges of the glass will be exposed. Finally, annealed glass can be cut after it has cooled, giving you greater flexibility than you have with tempered glass. It is particularly well suited to furniture making and cabinetry.
