Auto Glass Facts
Ever wonder why windshields don’t shatter when hit by a rock or other road debris? During the production process, a layer of plastic is sandwiched between two pieces of glass to form laminated glass. If the outer glass is broken, the laminate helps to hold the glass layers in place and prevent injury to the driver and passengers.
If your car’s side window has ever been smashed by a thief, you may have noticed how the glass broke into hundreds of tiny pieces. That glass has been tempered - cooled rapidly as it leaves the furnace. It’s designed to shatter into small pieces upon impact so you won’t be cut by large pieces in the event of an accident.
