Tempered Sidelites and Backlite (Temperlite -LT)

Safety and Strength
The tempered glass production starts with heating the glass to its softening point, approximately 680 Degrees Celsius, and then rapidly cooling it. This process is called as Tempering. During the tempering process, the glass forms contours with specialized moulding techniques. Tempering induces stresses in glass, making it four to five times tougher than the float glass.

Temperlite-LT, a product from AIS – the leading glass manufacturing company in India, is used primarily inside door glasses and backlite of the car. These toughened glasses, when broken, shatter into blunt pieces that do not cause injury, making them much safer than annealed glass, which breaks into sharp shards that can cause serious injury. Among various types of glass used in a car, tempered glass is essential to a vehicle’s safety, but it differs in both form and function from any other types of glass.

Features and Benefits

  • Four times stronger than annealed glass
  • Tolerates higher temperature (200° F–300° F) that may crack annealed glass
  • Breaks into blunt round pieces ensuring enhanced safety
