So how tough is your windscreen, really? The problem is that although glass is very strong, it is also very brittle. I’m sure that we have all broken windows at home at some stage. They can beak quite easily and leave large dangerous shards of glass. So how tough is your windscreen, and other glass around you?
1. Domestic Glass: Obviously, domestic glass that we use at home wouldn’t last 5 minutes as a windscreen for your car. Stones and debris are often thrown up by the car in front of you and they would destroy a standard glass pane.
The resultant lamination of glass and PVB glue means that the windscreen is far stronger than regular glass and will flex before it shatters. The centre PVB layer allows the glass to absorb the energy of an impact. The other advantage of this laminated glass is that should it break, the inner glue layer keeps the fragments from escaping. Tiny shards of glass are held in place and prevented from flying around inside the car. That’s why laminated glass is also often referred to as Safety Glass. Another bonus is that laminated glass also blocks nearly 99% of the suns UV radiation.
