Three reasons for choosing Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12
Enables heat strengthening of glass up to 12 mm
More control over heat strengthening process
More control over quenching parameters
Controlled heat strengthening
Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 has been developed to provide your machine with the heat strengthening capability to process glass in thicknesses 3–12 mm.
Heat strengthened glass is processed with much less pressure than tempered glass. The critical question in the manufacturing process how to create a sufficient stress level in the glass.
The Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 controls the cooling coefficient during the heat strengthening process. The strength and duration of the pressure wave is controlled automatically according to the set heat strengthening profile.

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”Read more
