BEAUT I FULLY STRONG

The mechanical properties of glass are strictly related to the amount, depth, and distribution of any surface flaws that may exist. Micro-cracks, invisible to the naked eye, can lead to complete mechanical failure. Simply put, they cause the glass to crack. Studies on the mechanical strengthening of glass show that we can suppress micro-cracks by introducing compressive stress on the glass surface. This limits micro-cracks from forming and spreading. Using this knowledge, our handmade STEM ZERO collection is strengthened by employing a special ‘surface modification technology’, based on an ion-exchange process. Larger ions are incorporated into the glass’ surface structure, replacing the smaller ions which cause strains, thus increasing the strength, durability, and flexibility of the glass.

BOWL IMPACT TEST - 35% stronger Test is performed according to the following standards: DIN 52295 / Testing of glass –Pendulum impact test EN 12980:2000 / Materials and articles in contact with foodstuffs. Non-metallic articles for catering and industrial use. Method of test for the determination of impact resistance.

BENDING TEST - Up to 13° Glass is bent at a certain angle from the top of the bowl keeping the stem fixed.
