Thermally tempered does not change the composition of the elements of the glass, but only changes the state and motion of the glass, Chemically strenghened change the composition of glass elements.
Processing temperature: thermally tempered is carried out at a temperature of 600℃--700℃ (close to the softening point of glass).
Chemically strenghened is carried out at a temperature of 400℃ --450℃.
Processing principle: thermally tempered is quenching, and compressive stress is formed inside.
Chemically strenghened is potassium and sodium ion replacement + cooling, and it is also compressive stress.
Processing thickness: Chemically strenghened 0.15mm-50mm.
Thermally tempered: 3mm-35mm.
Center stress: Thermally tempered glass is 90Mpa-140Mpa: Chemically strenghened glass is 450Mpa-650Mpa.
Fragmentation state: thermally tempered glass is partical.
Chemically strenghened glass is block.
Anti impact: Thermally tempered glass thickness ≥ 6mm has advantages.
Chemically strenghened glass <6mm advantage.
Bending strength: Chemically strenghened is higher than thermally tempered .
Optical properties: Chemically strenghened is better than thermally tempered.
Surface flatness: Chemically strenghened is better than thermally tempered.
