trying to decide wheather my glass is tempered or plate


Recommended Posts

I bought a used tank. 50g rimless form germany. I broke the bottom in transport. It was plate glass and I fixed it. I dont know what the sides are. Plate or tempered. One side has a chip of glass missing on the very top side edge about 1.5" long. nothing to compromise strength. Would temper glass shatter into a million peices if it got chipped on the edge?

If the bottom wasn't tempered, then the sides probably aren't either. Plus, instead of chipping, it probably would have shattered instead. But like epicfish stated, polarized glasses are about the only way to tell for sure if you can't get the info from the manufacturer.
