Glass treated using Hornos Pujol’s chemical tempering system offers significant advantages over heat-treated glass:
  • These include: absolute transparency without the waves that cause optical distortions or anisotropy appearing in the glass after its installation.
  • Greater safety owing to the substantial increase in the mechanical properties of the material.
  • Reduced structural or hardware costs: higher quality or performance due to the reduced thickness of the glass, but also due to its lightness.
  • This reduces the cost of laminated glass due to its perfect planimetry. Minimises the number of layers to be laid, as well as the thickness of glass to be used.
  • High flexural strength. Owing to its improved mechanical properties, it is able to better absorb the stresses produced by permanent and variable loads that are placed on it.
  • Highly scratch resistant: the chemical change produced in the glass thanks to Hornos Industriales Pujol’s Pujol-TQ System composite provides it with greater hardness. This makes it much more difficult to scratch this glass.
