HS Toughening Technology
1.HS means safety
HS toughening treatment is applied only to the top portion of the glass. By limiting the treatment area it reduces the chance of abrupt shattering when breakage occurs compared to full surface treated glass.
2.HS means durability and value
HS offers two treatment options: Physical Toughening and Ion Toughening. Both options provide superb durability which means prolonged service life and is perfect for the fast operation cycles at the food service industry.
HS glassware is designed to be both commercial and residential dishwasher safe.
4.More than 50 years of excellence
HS made its debut by TSG in 1967 as Japan’s first toughened glass drinkware brand. The HS brand has since been appreciated as the industry standard for over 50 years by the Japanese food service and hospitality sector.
Physical Toughened Glassware and Ion Toughened Glassware
There are two major toughening methods for glassware: Physical Toughening and Ion Toughening.
Both methods temper the glass by creating a compressive stress on the glass surface.
- TSG does not carry full surface physical toughened glass products.
- Full surface toughening increases durability, but the glass may be subjected to abrupt shattering when breakage occurs, causing the broken pieces of glasses to shatter apart.
Look for the HS labels for safe and durable service glassware o ffered by TSG.

Superb Transparency - High-grade Soda-lime Glassware
“Fine Clear” is the brand name of high-grade soda-lime glass material developed by Toyo-Sasaki Glass. In addition to its strength, Fine Clear achieves supreme clarity and brightness comparable to crystal glass which makes it an ideal material for glass tableware.
All TSG’s machine-made production has now been completely shifted to Fine Clear to refect TSG’s relentless pursuit of product excellence.
Carefully selected raw material and state-of-the-art glass melting technology are applied to minimize iron ion (Fe2+) content. Iron ion is known to have a negative effect to the color hue of the glass.
