Auto glass is one of the most important safety and structural components of your car. Auto glass on modern cars is made of laminated safety glass, meaning it has layers of glass and plastic fused together. Laminated glass is stronger and more flexible than purely glass windows. This added strength is important in both rollover and frontal impact car accidents. In a rollover, the auto glass helps provide additional structural support, keeping the roof from collapsing. When the front airbags deploy, they expand against the windshield with great force to help cushion the impact on the driver. Even a small chip or crack in a windshield can compromise its integrity.
History and Development of Auto Glass San Diego
The most obvious function of auto glass is to protect the driver from wind, dirt, bugs, temperature extremes, and flying debris. The windshield also provides a sleek, smooth surface for cutting through the air. Ultra-violate resistant coatings are often applied to the glass in the factory to protect the vehicles occupants from harmful rays. The move from ordinary glass to more advanced layered versions, started back in 1917. Automobile manufacturers were trying to address customer concerns about windshields that shattered when hit by the smallest pieces of debris. In 1919, Henry Ford developed a method of sandwiching a layer of plastic between two sheets of glass. This new laminated auto glass held together better when struck by objects and quickly became standard on all new cars.
Facts about Auto Glass San Diego
In many places around the country, including California, tint on auto glass is illegal. An exception to this is the thin strip of noticeably darker tint on the top of the windshield of some cars to prevent glare. When the vehicle is being assembled in the factory, technicians seal the windshield to the car with automotive grade urethane. The urethane bonds to the windshield and the frame of the car and seals the two together. If a windshield is broken or cracked beyond repair, the factory seal will be broken when removing the damaged windshield. When installing your new windshield, Auto Glass San Diego technicians use a similar urethane binder to create the seal. Unfortunately, once the factory seal has been broken, no replacement will ever have the same strength as the factory installation. All vehicles sold in North America must have auto glass that is O.E.M. compliant. This is a measure of the strength of the glass in a variety of tests. For some reason, replacement auto glass does not need to be O.E.M. compliant, and rarely is. For this reason, Auto Glass San Diego technicians will repair your factory glass whenever possible. Repairing auto glass is much cheaper and simpler than a full replacement. This saves you time and money. Our auto glass specialists are highly trained and will deliver outstanding results. Satisfaction guaranteed. If you have a chip, crack, or scratch in your auto glass and live in the San Diego area, call Auto Glass San Diego to schedule a free, no obligation consultation.
