Tempered glass is a heat treated glass that is rated for temperatures up to 400 degrees. We do not stock tempered glass, once glass is tempered it can not be cut to size. It may be ordered in a variety of thickness and is a safety glass. When tempered glass is broken, it breaks into many small pieces and not dangerous shards of glass. Tempered glass is identified by a small stamp in the lower right hand corner.
