What is tempered glass screen protector?

- Oct 07, 2017 -

Tempered glass screen protector is a popular accessory for smart phones, pad, tablets, etc. It consists of two major parts, which are tempered glass and AB glue.

Tempered glass is a safety glass that is four to five times stronger than standard glass. It is manufactured through a process of extreme heating and rapid cooling, making it harder than normal glass. And if it is broken, it will not break into dangerous sharp pieces.

Tempered glass is usually used to make the carafes and the windows in ovens. Computer screens, tub enclosures, skylights, door windows and shower doors are also examples of places you will find tempered glass.

Screen protectors are mainly used to be made of PET material. However, with the progress of science and technology and people’s more demand for screen protectors, tempered glass began to be used for protection for LED screen in the recent years.

However, tempered glass cannot absorb to the screen automatically. It is the AB glue that combines the tempered glass and screen. The AB glue has glue on both sides. One side clings to tempered glass and the other side clings to the screen. In this way, tempered glass can be successfully used as a protection for LCD screen.
