Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that is often used in homes and businesses. It is created by heating and cooling glass to create a stronger, more durable product. While tempered glass is stronger than regular glass, it is also more brittle and can break more easily if it is not cut correctly.
If you need to cut tempered glass, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. For example, tempered glass cannot be cut with a regular glass cutter. You will need to use a diamond cutter or a wet saw with a diamond blade.
Here are the steps you need to follow to cut tempered glass:
1. Mark the area where you need to cut the glass. Use a permanent marker to trace the outline of the cut.
2. Score the glass along the marked line with a diamond cutter. Make sure to use a straightedge and apply even pressure so that the cut is clean and straight. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, as this can cause the glass to shatter.
3. Place the glass on a wet saw with the marked line facing up. Cut along the line slowly and steadily.
4. Allow the glass to cool before handling it. Tempered glass can be very fragile and should be handled with care.
