There are three main types of auto glass on today’s vehicles. Tempered glass, designed to be stronger than regular glass, is used on the side and rear windows of cars, while lamination is used on windshields.
In this video, you can follow the process involved in manufacturing these types of auto glass. Tempered glass is designed to resist breaking, but in the event that it does shatter, it fractures into small fragments that have rounded edges. Windshields are manufactured in a process that uses two layers of glass and a sheet of vinyl to create a strong, single pane that can block 60% of solar energy when further treated.
