What Kind of Glass is Used in Car Windows?

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 generally 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 and is made of tempered glass.

This type of glass is also known as safety glass and when broken it breaks into small round pieces. 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 and is 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 has a wide range of applications and can work well in any situation where there is a potential for impact by a person. Automotive glass is designed to be resistant to dust, dirt and impacts to prevent annoying particles from sticking to the glass and distorting the driver's line of sight. Allstar Glass Corporation provides automotive glass services, including windshield repair, replacement or tinting, at affordable prices.

For windshield replacement, you have the option of selecting a replacement made by a company that makes OEM windshields or aftermarket glass. When it comes to side windows, deflector glass, ventilation glass and glazed roof (if the car has one), tempered glass can be treated with chemicals and heat treatments to give it more balanced internal stress capabilities. This process also changes the glass so that if broken it breaks into small pieces that do not have extremely sharp edges.
