Tempered | Heat Strengthened
Our state-of-the-art tempering oven produces “heat strengthened” and tempered glass of the highest quality. We temper glass to a minimum of industry standards Governed by ASTM C1048-04, ASTM C1279-06 and ASTM C1651-08.
Heat soaking is a process that potentially exposes critical nickel sulphide inclusions (NiS) in fully tempered glass. At Garibaldi, our heat soak oven meets all current EU standards EN 14179– 1:2005 (HST) (as of this writing there is still no American standard).
