What is Tempered Glass?

Tempered glass is known for its durability and strength. It is essential to know how to clean the glass. Tempered glass, a transparent material that is 4 times stronger than your phone’s screen, can be assembled using chemical treatment or controlled thermal treatment.

This glass will not break into jagged pieces, but a smaller fracture will be visible. It can be used to reinforce surfaces such as doors, windows, phones, computers, iPhones, and shower partitions.

What is an oleophobic coat?

These coatings are applied to ceramic and glass surfaces and provide finger smudge resistance. They also create an oil-resistant surface, which repels dirt particles and dust. If the coating is kept in good hands, it has a two-year life expectancy. However, misuse can quickly wear down your smartphone’s screen and cause damage within a matter of months.
