Tempered glass is a heat-treated glass. This heat treatment makes the glass roughly four times stronger than its original counterpart and allows the glass to remain heat resistant to approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, tempered glass is a safety glass. In the event of breakage, tempered glass will shatter into hundreds of tiny pieces instead of large shards. Tempered glass is available in a variety of thicknesses.
Neo ceramic glass is an exceptionally heat resistant glass. With resistance to approximately 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit, neo ceramic glass is three times more resistant to heat than tempered glass. Neo ceramic is available in 3/16” thickness.
