OEM manufacturers have a greater knowledge of the engineering demands a car can place on the windshield and their replacement windshields are made using the same quality materials. Safety glass is used in all automobile glass. It is manufactured to reduce injury, if it breaks. There are two different types: laminated glass and tempered glass. Windshields are made from a lamination process. A windshield actually consists of two-piece of glass, bonded together by a vinyl inter-layer. This vinyl layer cushions your head during impact. If a windshield breaks during impact, the broken pieces will generally adhere to the plastic lining. Side and rear windows consist of tempered glass, by high temps. This results in the outside surfaces of the glass becoming harder than the center of glass and, therefore, is stronger than regular glass of the same thickness. Tempered glass will break-up into very small pieces, if broken. What is an OEM windshield, OEM Auto Glass or OEM Parts?
