Axi Tint toughened is an ultimate grade glass perfect for privacy and obscurity, whilst maintaining a fantastic visual appeal. Axi Tint is available as standard in green and grey tint but special colours are available on request.
Axi Tint toughened glass is a superior A-grade safety glass manufactured in accordance with Australian standard AS/NZS2208. Axi Tint toughened is manufactured by a process of heating the glass to in excess of 600°C and rapidly cooling it using an extensive air treatment system. This results in the glass having strength nearly five times that of float glass.
Axi Tint toughened is manufactured with a minimum surface compression stress of equal or greater than what is set out in BCA requirements.
