Tempered Glass

We always recommend our clients to use tempered glass to meet the demands and stresses yacht glass encounters and for the safety it provides. Tempering creates balanced internal stresses which cause the glass, when broken, to crumble into small granular chunks instead of splintering into jagged shards. The granular chunks are less likely to cause injury.

Toughened glass is physically and thermally stronger than regular glass. The greater contraction of the inner layer during manufacturing induces compressive stresses in the surface of the glass balanced by tensile stresses in the body of the glass. For glass to be considered toughened, this compressive stress on the surface of the glass should be a minimum of 69 MPa. For it to be considered safety glass, the surface compressive stress should exceed 100 MPa. The greater the surface stress, the smaller the glass particles will be when broken.

New modern factory

In order to keep up with the increased demand, Ocean Group started building new modern factory in the spring of 2015. New factory will be bigger and more functional. It will allow us to raise the bar higher and to accept even the most demanding tasks from the biggest shipyards around the globe.
