Modern drivers, perhaps difficult to imagine a model of a car without glasses. Meanwhile, exactly as were the first car. Cars of the late nineteenth century to form little different from the animal-drawn open carriages carts. However, the rate of "iron horses" was higher than the rate of their living counterparts, and therefore it was necessary to protect the occupant from the air stream. So in the car appeared windshield. The first auto-glass fabricated from the same material as regular windows. Of course, this glass was very fragile and broke into pieces upon impact, which posed a considerable danger for the people in the car. Several later began to use tempered glass, but it is broken under the stress.
Shatterproof Automotive Solution was found in a 20th of the years when the cars used in the construction of a new invention of the French scientist, created a three-layered glass, consisting of two layers of glass and a layer of film between them. The essence of the invention was that the three-layered glass, or a triplex, with the impact is not divided into fragments, and remained on the film. Installation auto-glass manufactured using the new technology has made travel by car is much safer, because broken glass is not traumatized passengers. In addition, the installation of a windshield of laminated glass has contributed the fact that the replacement windshield was made much less frequently. Now you do not have to change all the glass due to minor cracks. Other material for the production of auto – Stalin – as a product of French scientists.
It was invented in 1929 and has since been widely used in automotive. Stalin – it repeatedly tempered, durable glass. Feature of his that if the impact force is very high and the glass from the stalinita breaks it shatters into tiny pieces with blunt edges that do not hurt people. Today, for the manufacture of car windows is used as a triplex, and Stalin. Production technologies continue to improved. In particular, receive a distribution of athermal glasses, which hold the heat of sunlight, allowing the passenger compartment is not heated. Developed a variety of coverage, deductible contamination of glass. Applied electric heating of glass. Create a glass with enhanced sound insulation. Future plans include the creation of heavy-duty glass that can withstand even the most severe blows.
