TEMPERLITE-Tempered Glass
Tempered glass is created by heating ordinary flat glass to cover 650° centigrade and then "quenching" it with a highly controlled blast of cool air
Tempered glass is created by heating ordinary flat glass to cover 650° centigrade and then "quenching" it with a highly controlled blast of cool air. This rapid cooling creates copressive stress in the glass surface.

The process makes tempered glass three to five times stronger than regular flat glass.

Tempered glass improves the safety of automobiles through its unique fracture mechanism: When tempered glass breaks, it instantly shatters into pea-sized fragments, which are to small to cause seroius injury.
