This specification covers the standard for bent glass proposed for use in general building construction, furniture, display, and various other non-automotive applications. When the glass is specified as chemically strengthened, heat-strengthened, or fully tempered, the fabrication processes must be completed prior to the strengthening. The glass specimen shall also undergo impact testing for safety glazing.
