Duralex, South Africa
Tempered Durable Glassware, Made in France
Embodied in products that have become legendary in the history of design, Duralex is one of those brands that inevitably spark off memories of happy times. Its reputation is based on the very qualities of its product and its unique material, tempered glass, whose strength inspired the brand name taken from the Latin motto, "Dura Lex Sed Lex" (The law is tough, but it is the law).
Tempered Glass Technology
- Glass that has been heated to around 700°C is suddenly cooled by cold air ventilation
- This treatment creates controlled stress in the glass which improves most of its physical specifications: resistance to mechanical stress (bending, impacts) and thermal shock
- A tempered glass product is about 2.5 times more resistant than an annealed product of the same thickness and resists a thermal shock of 130°C whereas annealed glass breaks above 40°C
- Tempered glass, if broken, shatters into many small non-cutting pieces
