What is a nucleated glass?
It is increasingly common to find pint beer glasses which contain markings on the base. These marking are formed from small pits which aid in nucleation - thus helping to preserve the head.
What is a toughened glass?
Toughened or tempered glass is a type of safety glass processed by controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared with normal glass. 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. As a consequence toughened glasses are often used in city centre pubs and bars. Alternatively, please see our polycarbonate glassware range.
Is my glass toughened?
All of our toughened glasses have “toughened” stated in the product details on our website.
