Car glass differs significantly from normal glass because it is specifically made to withstand high impact during collisions and shield the occupants from harm.
Car glass does not pose a safety danger, in contrast to standard glass, which when broken shatters into sharp shards.
Glass has emerged as the material of choice for developing distinctive shapes and imaginative designs for fashionable window profiles in a vehicle because it is a flexible material that can be treated and processed to acquire any shape. Sunroofs are also made of auto glass, and they are UV-resistant so that the occupants can experience natural light without worrying about dangerous UV rays.
In rollover accidents, auto glass maintains 60% of the vehicle’s structural integrity while only absorbing 45% of the force in head-on collisions due to its exceptional durability. Without a windshield, the vehicle may flatten out and become more prone to yielding in even small collisions. To avoid bothersome particles sticking to the glass and distorting the driver’s field of vision, vehicle glass is also made to be impact, dust, and dirt resistant.
