When performance, visual appeal, and safety are indispensable, arcon-dur safety glass is fit for the job.
arcon knows that safety is fundamental when it comes to glass. This is why arcon glass proud to offer arcon-dur safety glass products. This extremely tough, breakage resistant safety glass is produced using arcon’s special heat shock process. The glass is first heated to 650° C over just a few seconds, then rapidly cooled with a shock of chilled air. This creates a state of internal stress within the glass, with the core of the glass held under tensile stress, and the surface under compressive stress. The result is arcon-dur safety glass which is highly resistant to stress from heat, bending, shocks, and impact. In the event of breakage, arcon-dur safety glass produces granules, which are much safer than the shards and splinters formed by non-treated glass. arcon-dur safety glass is produced to national and European safety standards, and meets or exceeds quality and safety standards.
