What Is Tempered Stove Glass? 

Tempered Stove glass has been chemically or heat-treated to increase strength and can withstand up to four times the pressure of standard glass.  Tempered glass is created by rapidly heating and cooling the glass in a process called tempering. Although suitable for many applications, it is NOT suitable for wood burning stoves as it can only withstand 260c. If you are in any doubt, contact HD Stove Glass UK for professional advice.

The ceramic glass was invented accidentally in 1952 by a scientist at the Corning cookware corporation. Ceramic glass can withstand temperatures up to around 650c, which is why it is used for Replacing stove glass in wood and log burners.
