Tempering is a heat treatment that creates balanced internal stresses designed to improve the resistance of glass sheets to flexing and thermal shock. It is also called safety toughened glass because when broken it shatters into small pieces without sharp edges. Glass can also be colored by introducing a dye into the molten glass which is then uniformly distributed throughout the sheet.
