Ceramic is a heat-resistant glass-ceramic that can tolerate exceptionally high temperatures. Since it has the ability to tolerate constant temperatures up to 1292 degrees Fahrenheit, Ceramic Glass is the optimal choice for wood stoves and fireplaces. This type of transparent glass-ceramic also functions well when temperature varies from hot to cold. If you were to put ice on hot standard glass, it would most likely break. Ceramic Glass can handle such a temperature change and would not break under those circumstances.
One of the most used applications of Ceramic glass is for pieces like the hearth of your fireplace. Most of the time when the glass of your hearth breaks, customers attempt to contact their manufacturer in hopes to get a replacement. Unfortunately, sometimes these companies go out of business, or simply stop making the replacement piece that would fit in your hearth.
