Auto Glass has come a long way since the invention of the automobile. In the
beginning of the automobile era, there was no auto glass to speak of. Automobiles
were driven with no windshield, no side auto glass, and no back auto glass. That's
right, original automobiles were completely open to the elements. It has been many
decades since the first automobiles were created, and the creation of auto glass in automobiles
is by far one of the best enhancements made over time.
There are two distinct types of auto glass; laminated auto glass and tempered auto
glass. Each of these types of auto glass have different uses in the automobile,
both however are used for the safety of all passengers in the automobile.
Laminated auto glass is most commonly used in the windshield of the automobile.
The windshield is a key safety component in automobiles, which is why laminated
auto glass is used. Laminated auto glass is made by a process that bonds two layers of
glass and a layer of plastic lamination. The lamination process enables the auto
glass to remain intact when the glass is struck with enough force even when it is
broken. A laminated auto glass will crack instead of shattering when it breaks,
providing the utmost safety for those riding in the front seat of the car.
Tempered auto glass is used for your side auto glass, and back auto glass. Tempered
auto glass is very strong and is thermally heated in its production to provide that
extra strength. Tempered auto glass is used in automobiles for safety of the persons
riding in the vehicle. When tempered glass breaks, it breaks into tiny uniform pieces
with no jagged edges that could potentially harm someone.
