Custom Laminated Glass Solutions

Invented in 1903 by French chemist Édouard Bénédictus, laminated glass started as a simple laboratory accident and ended up as a crucial part of the automotive industry we know today. After hearing about an accident in which two women were severely injured by glass debris, Bénédictus filed a patent to officially produce laminated glass windshields that reduced injuries that were a result of automobile accidents.

Made by “sandwiching” a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer between two glass panes during the manufacturing process, laminated glass is strong, cost-effective and shatter-proof. It is used in multiple industries to keep vehicle occupants safe and out of harm’s way, including in public transportation, construction, the hospitality and retail industries, automobiles and more!

FEATURES & BENEFITS OF LAMINATED GLASS

It’s no surprise that laminated glass is mandatory for automotive windshields in every industrialized country. Damage to door glass and windshields can occur during accidents or due to flying or falling debris, and vehicle operators need to be protected when the unexpected happens.

Custom laminated glass designs from Custom Glass Solutions offer protection to help keep vehicle operators and passengers safe.

The advantages of laminated glass windshields and window glass include:

Strength

The interlayer in laminated glass softens the blow of the impact, absorbing the energy of the collision, and prevents the occupant from being ejected from the vehicle.

safety

Safety

If a laminated glass panel is damaged, the glass cracks in a “spider-web” pattern but remains intact rather than shattering, significantly minimizing the risk of cut or injury from shards of glass.

UV Protection

UV Protection

Laminated glass windshields block more than 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which prevents cancer-causing UV rays from penetrating exposed skin, protects eyesight and even stops fading of interior materials in vehicles.
