Abrisa's Chemical Strengthening process toughens soda lime through a sodium and potassium ion exchange in a salt bath. Glass can be strengthened from 8 to 16 hours and is often requested for toughened thin display applications.
Heat Tempering toughens soda lime through the controlled heating and cooling of the glass to maintain a temperature differential between the core and outer surfaces. The stresses induced compress the outer surfaces, forming a substrate substantially tougher than standard soda lime. These processes offer:
