sedak tempered+: Toughened glass without anisotropies

sedak has celebrated a spectacular launch of the first tempered glass without anisotropies – invisible to the naked eye: sedak tempered+.

Engineered to deliver fully-tempered and heat-strengthened glass with no anisotropies and best optical properties, sedak tempered+ goes beyond the ordinary to set new standards in glass. enjoy thermally toughened glass with a pattern-free vision from every angle and under any lighting condition. ’s advanced tempering technology makes it possible.

An architect’s dream come true
sedak tempered+ represents a new generation of toughened glass, where visual and mechanical properties are consistent from any angle. It’s the promise of a harmonious relationship between architecture and glass, where aesthetics and functionality coexist seamlessly. sedak tempered+ signifies more than a product; it’s a leap forward in glass technology to celebrate the transparency of one of the most favourite materials in architecture.

Revolutionizing advanced tempering process
sedak’s advanced tempering process sets new standards in glass. Through cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, sedak tempered+ achieves a homogeneous structure, rendering it not only highly resistant to impacts and extreme temperatures, but also remarkably clarity and vision. Like common tempered glass, sedak tempered+ is produced by heating the glass to a high temperature, usually around 620degrees Celsius (1,184 degrees Fahrenheit), and then rapidly cooling it using air jets. By balancing heating and cooling, sedak’s patented tempering technology reduces the stress differences in the glass. It does not create any anisotropies.

Glass is actually optically isotropic and light is transmitted uniformly. Through thermal toughening, the incoming light refracts in different ways: glass becomes anisotropic. The eye recognizes this as a shimmering in the glass (interference colour). These effects, such as rainbow-like spots or grey stripes in daylight, occur in previous tempering processes.
