Car glass tends to be either laminated or toughened glass. Most modern cars (cars produced from the early 80's) have laminated windscreens. Before then most windscreens were made from toughened glass.
Almost all car panel glass, that is, side window glass and quarter panels are made using toughened glass, regardeless of the vehicles age.
Glass plays an important role in a car's ability to offer safety and security to its passengers. The automobile industry is making increasing use of laminated glass, which is a "sandwich" of two glass sheets with a thin but tough plastic layer in between. The layers are bonded to each other under controlled heat and pressure. If the glass suffers an impact, the glass layers may fragment but, depending on the force of the impact, the plastic interlayer will hold.
This safety feature enables the vehicle to absorb some of the energy of the impact and helps to prevent the ejection of the driver and passengers and the penetration of objects in case of an accident. Moreover, after an impact the resulting glass fragments tend to remain attached to the plastic interlayer, reducing the hazards of sharp projectiles during an accident. And the fact that windows made of laminated glass will tend to remain in their frame greatly improves the performance of the side airbags, providing the necessary support during inflation.
Laminated glass also offers a considerable security advantage making it much more difficult to break into the car (on average, it takes 10 times as long to penetrate a car window made of laminated glass than one made of toughened glass).
Laminate and Toughened glass react differently when removing scratches, so it is important to use the right DIY kit for your scratched glass repair.
