What Makes Tempered Glass Unique?
You might not realize that the type of glass used for your front windshield is different from the glass used for your side and rear windows. The reason why vehicles use tempered glass for side and rear windows but not the windshield is all about safety:
- Tempered glass is stronger and more durable than the laminated glass used in your windshield
- When this tempered side and rear glass windows break they shatter into many small pieces which prevents large chunks of glass from causing serious injuries
- Windshields use laminated glass instead so when it breaks the pieces are held in place by the lamination rather than potentially being sprayed into the passenger’s faces
As you can see, there are important differences in the properties of your vehicle’s windshields compared to the tempered glass windows. Any shop to which you bring your vehicle should know these important differences in how to properly repair or install the side and rear windows.
