Real. Simple. Science.

Tempered glass quality:
Wait 10 years hoping to see if scientists understand your questions?
Or get your own results in minutes to practical questions you can test for yourself?
Wet scrape or dry?
If a tempered glass surface sounds defective - is that the roller side?
Is Chinese tempered glass worse than American?

Plus a stunning demo of how scratches look worse hours AFTER you inspect. (Learned at GPD 13 in Finland)

Presented by Gary Mauer.
