Re: [APD] Re: Best glass for replacement lid
Thickness hasn't anything to do with being tempered. Glass
tempering is a heat/fast-cool treatment that makes glass
harder to crack, and when it does, it shatters mercilessly.
It's also more easily broken if scratched. Great for
automobile windshields where large shard could be deadly,
butnot ideal for aquarium use.
I'd be surprised if tempered glass was used. I would expect
it only if it was somehow cheaper than nontempered glass,
but I don't see how it would be.
