Chemically strengthened glass
Hero-URG is a chemically strengthened glass. In the production of Hero-URG, the glass is immersed for a specific period in a salt bath. This results in an ion exchange on the surface of the glass. The surface treated in this manner improves the strength properties of the glass considerably.
Unlike thermally toughened glass, the surface flatness is maintained. Thus, a high optical quality of the glass panes is achieved. Due to the high strength properties, we also have the ability to temper substantially thinner glass.
Advantages at a glance:
- Increased impact and flexural strength
- Higher optical quality
- Reduction of the total weight of glass units through the use of Hero-URG
- Reduction in the cost on frames and construction
