What So Great About Duralex?
Duralex tempers its glass by heating it to around 700°C and then suddenly cooling it by cold air ventilation.
This treatment creates controlled stress in the glass which improves most of its physical specifications: resistance to mechanical stress (bending, impacts) and thermal shock. A tempered glass product is about 2.5 times more resistant than a standard glass product of the same thickness and resists a thermal shock of 130°C whereas standard glass breaks above 40°C.
Tempered glass, if broken, shatters into many small non-cutting pieces.
Besides Their Design And Practicality, Duralex products Have Many Advantages Over Traditional Glass Products.
