WINDSHIELD REPLACEMENT

The important of a windshield

The windshield is an extremely vital component of your car. It protects from debris, dust, flying pebbles, and weather elements such as rain, wind, etc. It’s obvious the windshield provides the driver and passengers with a clear sight of vision to operate the vehicle appropriately, but it has is very important safety functions as well.

Roof Support

You may be surprised to learn that a windshield provides structural support for your vehicle. In the event of a collision or rollover, the windshield adds strength to the frame and can help prevent roof crush.

Airbag Deployment

The passenger airbag is actually designed to deploy into the windshield for proper positioning, but if the windshield is not properly mounted and bonded it can actually be blown off by the force of the airbag striking it, leaving occupants at risk for greater injuries or death.

Aerodynamics

The simple reason car windshields are tilted is to reduce air drag. Air flow hitting the wide, flat surface of a vertical windshield would greatly reduce the car's ability to move forward—the engine would need to work harder, burning much more gas, to allow the car to maintain speed.

What is a windshield made out of?

Your windshield needs a type of auto glass that is tougher and stronger than ordinary glass as the windshield is the most accident-prone amongst all the car glass. This is why laminated glass is used in the manufacture of windshields. Laminated glass has a special PVB interlayer in between two sheets or panes of tempered glass. This multi-layered laminated glass provides exceptional resistance to harsh impact.

On the rare occasion of breakage, it doesn’t shatter but remains intact. The PVB interlayer acts as a glue and keeps the glass layers together. This characteristic further adds another layer of safety for the passengers. The interlayer in laminated glass has a UV filter that helps to protect the interior of the car from harmful UV rays.
