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.
