What is tempered glass?
Tempered glass technology is a specific treatment, which consists in sudden cooling of the material previously heated to a temperature of about 700°C. This improves the physical qualities of glass products, making them thermal shock resistant and 2,5 times stronger than normal glass products. Although virtually unbreakable, if Duralex tempered glass does break, it bursts into a multitude of blunt fragments, without risk of injury.
Since 1945, Duralex has pioneered tempered glass technology, for which it is still renowned today. Manufactured in hygienic non-porous glass, Duralex glass products are dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe. From raw material to packaging, everything is 100 % produced and made in France. Today more than ever, Duralex embodies safe and affordable everyday glassware.
