Heat Soaking is a process that is designed to expose NiS inclusions in toughened glass. The process involves placing the toughened glass inside a heat soaking chamber and raising the temperature to approximately 300ºC to accelerate nickel sulfide expansion. This causes glass containing nickel sulfide impurities to explode in the heat soak chamber, thus reducing the risk of potential spontaneous breakage once installed.
