Most vehicle windshields are made of laminated glass, which is considered effective in preventing break-ins due to the effort required to break them. Tempered glass, on the other hand, is used for the opposite reason. Windshield glass is made of laminated glass, while the glass used for the front and rear door windows and the rear window are made of tempered glass. Rear glass, also known as rear window glass, rear windshield, or rear glass, is the piece of glass opposite a vehicle's windshield.
This type of glass is made of tempered glass, also known as safety glass. When broken, it breaks into small round pieces, unlike a front windshield which is made of laminated glass. Safety glass is used in all automotive glass and is designed to reduce the likelihood of injury should it break. Laminated glass is made up of two pieces of glass with a thin layer of vinyl between them.
The three pieces are laminated together by applying heat and pressure in a special oven called an autoclave. Tempering produces a hardened piece of glass that is four to five times stronger than before the tempering process. Tempered glass is most commonly used in passenger windows of cars, while laminated glass forms the front and rear windshields most of the time. Laminated glass can serve multiple purposes depending on consumer requirements, and automotive glass is one of them.
It consists of two strong glass sheets that become a single thick sheet by sandwiching a layer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) in the middle. The process also changes the glass so that, if broken, it breaks into small pieces of glass that do not have extremely sharp edges. In addition, laminated glass can be repaired, but tempered glass breaks completely in an accident and requires a complete replacement. The second type of aftermarket automotive glass comes from the OEM, but was created on a different production line.
