There are two fundamental types of auto glass, tempered safety glass and laminated safety glass. Because your safety is important to us, Clear-Vu Auto Glass only uses OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and DOT (Department of Transportation) approved replacement glass.
- Tempered Safety Glass: Tempered glass starts as a single pane of glass which is "tempered" to making it stronger. The tempering process occurs when glass is heated to a very high temperature and then rapidly cooled. This results in a very strong glass that when broken crumbles in very small bits of glass.
- Laminated Safety Glass: Consists of two pieces of glass with a plastic layer sandwiched between them designed to meet the federal standard of .030 inch of PVB laminated between the layers of glass.
