Language in which you want to receive the document.


This European Standard specifies tolerances, flatness, edgework, fragmentation and physical and mechanical characteristics of monolithic flat thermally toughened borosilicate safety glass for use in buildings.
Information on curved thermally toughened borosilicate safety glass is given in Annex A, but this product does not form part of this standard.
Other requirements, not specified in this standard, can apply to thermally toughened borosilicate safety glass which is incorporated into assemblies, e.g. laminated glass or insulating glass units, or undergo an additional treatment, e.g. coating. The additional requirements are specified in the appropriate product standard. Thermally toughened borosilicate safety glass, in this case, does not lose its mechanical or thermal characteristics.
This European Standard does not cover glass sandblasted after toughening.
