5-6 times mechanically stronger than annealed glass of the same size and thickness.
High thermal-shock resistance :
Approximately 3 times more resistant to rapid temperature changes (thermal shocks) than ordinary glass.
If broken, it shatters into small cubical fragments rather than irregular shards of glass – less likely to cause serious injuries.
Temperature resistance :
Can withstand temperatures of up to 300 °C. (Once toughened, these glasses cannot be cut or drilled.)
