    Absolutely first rate. The technician arrived precisely as scheduled and repairs were done in less than an hour. The savings over the so-called “experts” was approximately 33%. I wholeheartedly recommend Lou and Blas Auto Glass.

    2004 Hyundai Tiburon | 2 Door Hatchback
    EXCELLENT! The technician, Jason, was ON TIME, VERY THOROUGH and MOST PROFESSIONAL. Clearly he knew his craft and wasted no time in replacing the front windshield of my 2004 Hyundai Tiburon Tuscani. As I plan to sell the car, I wanted it to be as sharp as possible and the crack across the front windshield was an eyesore. But thanks to Abra/Interstate Glass, it now looks super sharp and has added value to my sale price. I not only would use this company again, should the need arise; but I also will recommend them to my friends and family.

    My windshield seemed to be a little different with the additional sensors and even though my tech had to come out several times, they were circumstances that were out of his ontrol. Each time he came to the house he was very professional and always courteous, pleasant and informative. . I give him a 5 Star rating.

    Glass repair was fast and done well. But the installer was alone and I needed to help him handle the glass. This was fine by me but what if I were not there? And he hardly spoke English. Also the windshield did not have the defroster strips on it and the installer was just tucking the loose wires under the dash.

Auto Glass

Can you imagine your car without auto glass installed in it? Seems kind of silly to consider at first, and then it begins to paint a dangerous picture.

The road debris that would fly in your face, the bugs that you'd be accelerating into, the possible fast flying stone; or perhaps the fact that your air conditioning would blow right out of your vehicle's cabin, practically unfelt. And in the winter? Forget it. You couldn't possibly drive at high speeds when the temperatures are already freezing and wet-you'd likely catch hypothermia!

All of that may seem minor, until of course you consider that your windshield and autoglass contribute up to 60% of your vehicle's overall cabin strength! Or that properly installed auto glass can hold up to 1.5 times your vehicle's weight. Or yet another little known fact-which is that your auto glass is designed to prevent you from ejecting from your vehicle in an accident-since ejecting from your vehicle gives you a high chance of possibly dying. Now imagine getting into a head-on collision, or a rollover accident without your auto glass. Yikes!

Auto glass is the unsung hero of our vehicle. It takes all the filth of the road, keeps us cool in the summer and toasty in the winter, and is an integral safety feature of our car's structural integrity.

Early Cars And The Development of Auto Glass

The popularity of early automobiles was stoked into a red-hot frenzy over a period of 20 years. This period was known as "brass era" cars, as manufacturers were playing with the design and power systems of vehicles in a variety of ways. Horseless carriages, as cars during the time were known, could be powered with petrol (gas) engines, steam engines (which were quite popular at the time), and even early electric systems.

As cars rose in popularity, most early drivers would wear goggles to protect their vision. Of course this didn't prevent other road debris from smacking them or the passengers of the vehicle in the face as they cruised along. With the rise of popularity, along with the increase in vehicle speed, the use of auto glass began.

Autoglass1

Early auto glass was a "windscreen" that was designed much like a window you would find in a house. If the glass became too dirty, the driver could lower the horizontally divided window, and continue driving with clear vision. Since most drivers still wore safety glasses, this was rarely an issue.

What did become an issue, was the fact that whenever a stone hit the glass, if the driver went over notably rough roads, or if the car got into even a minor fender bender, the glass would shatter and lacerate the driver and passengers. More injuries were incurred from auto glass breaking in a vehicle, than from the actual auto accidents during that time period.

In 1903, French chemist Edouard Benedictus accidentally discovered shatter-proof glass. After filling a glass beaker with dried collodion film, he accidentally dropped the beaker on the ground. To his surprise, the glass did not shatter, but rather cracked without breaking apart.

This inspired Benedictus to experiment with and further develop this newly discovered "laminate" glass. In 1911 he formed a patent and even went on to form the Societe du Verre Triplex, for the purpose of producing a composite of glass and plastic for use in automobiles.

Around the same time, John Wood of England had patented another type of laminate glass for safe use in automobiles. His version of laminate glass differed because it was produced by sandwiching Canadian balsam between 2 panes of glass.

Despite these radical discoveries in glass safety and strength, laminate glass wasn't widely used in vehicles until after World War I. Up until that point, normal sheets of glass, and occasionally tempered glass (which goes through a series of heating and cooling treatments to strengthen the glass) had been the de facto auto glass in most vehicles.

There are conflicting stories revolving around the initial implementation of auto glass in the majority of vehicles.

Some accounts say that in 1918 Henry Ford was looking through the rear window of a Model T, and upon seeing that the view was distorted, he decided the vehicle needed improved glass.

Another account reports that after a series of nasty lawsuits in which glass shattered and hurt the driver and passengers of various vehicles, in 1926 Henry Ford decided to implement safety glass in all of his vehicles.

Either way, Henry Ford needed to produce less expensive glass-the production of Triplex glass was not only very time consuming, but was also very costly. As the demand for fully enclosed vehicles rose, the price of glass had continued to rise nearly three-fold.

One of Ford's employees began to work with a British glass manufacturer, Pilkington, on a new glass manufacturing process. (Today, Pilkington is considered the highest quality auto glass manufacturer in the world, and even produces structural safety glass for large high-rise buildings.)

Ford slowly began rolling out vehicles with the option to upgrade various vehicles with installed safety glass, starting in 1919. By 1926, safety glass was utilized in every Ford vehicle that was available for purchase.

The laminate auto glass that we use today was developed in 1927, by Canadian chemists Howard W. Matheson and Frederick W. Skirrow. The two chemists invented polyvinyl butyral (PVB), which was sandwiched between 2 panes of glass that had undergone tempering treatments.

Ultimately, in 1936, the majority of United States car manufacturing companies began using the PVB laminate auto glass because it had been discovered that unlike laminate glass that was made with collodion film or Canadian balsam, PVB auto glass did not discolor over time. It also was much harder to penetrate in the event of an accident. A mere five years later, PVB safety auto glass had all but replaced the earlier versions of safety glass altogether.

Auto Glass Safety Regulations

Even though safety glass became widely used by most car manufacturers, it had yet to be given a standard for quality and safety by 1963. At this time, Ralph Nader-a lawyer and consumer advocate who later went on to campaign for presidency on three separate occasions-released his book Unsafe at Any Speed.

While his book was not directly aimed at auto glass or windshields, it brought to attention the fact that many car manufacturers were making design decisions based on comfort or aesthetics, rather than driver and passenger safety.

Autoglass2

As a result of Nader's in-depth research and analysis about car manufacturing as a whole, in 1970 the United States government formed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA created the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, which included several automotive glass regulations, such as:

  • Standards for the transparency of auto glass
  • Standards for the strength of auto glass-including the requirement that the glass be capable of keeping occupants inside the vehicle during accidents
  • Standard practices and procedures for mounting a windshield in such a way that a certain level of strength is retained even during an accident

Today, several auto glass safety and training organizations exist to help ensure the proper and safe installation of auto glass in all vehicles. For instance, an installer can join the Independent Glass Association (IGA) for additional training, certification, and recent industry updates in auto glass safety and technology.

Another organization, the Auto Glass Safety Council, formed in the late 1990's. This organization brought together windshield manufacturers, car makers, adhesive companies, and auto glass retailers to really focus on consumer safety and technology. In 1999, they formed the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS). Several glass shops and installers who were focused on consumer safety voluntarily became AGRSS certified-and today it is considered a must-have standard for any auto glass professional or shop to attain.

The most up-to-date AGRSS addresses 6 areas that are critical to auto glass safety:

  • A thorough assessment of the condition of the vehicle (frame, existing bonding of glass to frame, and the glass itself)
  • A proper selection of glass and bonding agents that will create a snug installation of the auto glass inside to the car frame
  • Standards for glass that is bonded with adhesives
  • Standards for auto glass that is installed with rubber gaskets, plus other requirements for the other auto glass installed in the vehicle
  • Periodic continued education for auto glass technicians, shops, and installers
  • How a glass technician, shop, or installer interacts with consumers

There are several other organizations that cover consumer safety and auto glass professional education, such as the International Automotive Glass Federation or National Windshield Repair Association.

At the end of the day, when considering a place for auto glass or windshield repair or replacement, it's best to find a shop that has technicians with certification and ongoing education of some sort.

Current and Future Auto Glass Developments

Autoglass3
Autoglass4

Modern cars have a plethora of complex and often sophisticated technologies built into the windshield. For example, windshields are growing longer, more curved, and some are even taking over a larger portion of the vehicle's overall structure such as the roof or even wrapping along the side of the vehicle. The original fabricators of auto glass could only dream of the shapes and strength that safety glass can be manufactured and molded into.

Today's windshields often filter 95-99% of UV rays. In the 90's a film was developed with dye to absorb heat-therefore reducing the infrared rays of sunlight from passing through to passengers in the vehicle, and helping to control the heat within a vehicle. Even more advanced today are the ceramic or crystalline particles that can be mixed into the chemistry of auto glass to block up to the entire infrared spectrum from entering a vehicle.

In fact, Pilkington recently announced the development of smart glass with particles that suspend liquid, and another technology in which the glass actually absorbs and/or repels dirt and other debris, therefore removing the need for a driver to clean his auto glass altogether.

Many car manufacturers are working on heads-up displays with sensors built into the auto glass of a vehicle to provide important data. Some modern iterations would help a driver during adverse weather to locate the edges of the road and create a laser outline of the edges so that the driver doesn't drive out of their lane and put themselves into danger. Other iterations simply project important data such as speedometers or information on the condition of your vehicle, so that you aren't looking away from the road while driving.

As technology has evolved, society has seamlessly integrated these incredible advances-and if you're reading this you can probably admit you barely think about it. However, it's amazing to think about how far we've come since the first iteration of horseless carriages.

This might also shed some light on why it can be costly to repair, or even replace, your auto glass...

Auto Glass Replacement

Even with all the advances in auto glass, scratches, chips, pits, cracks, and breaks can still occur. Some of them will happen because of something as innocent as a rapid change in temperature or humidity. Others will occur from things you simply cannot control, such as a stone flying into your windshield on the highway. Even more unfortunate circumstances could lead to your auto glass needing repair or replacement-such as vandalism or extreme weather.

While your auto glass is surprisingly strong, it's important to understand that it is essentially a netted pattern of molecular bonds. When even a few bonds are weakened or damaged, by extension the other bonds in the glass will also become weakened from trying to compensate for the damage. Over time, this stress and weakening takes a toll, and the damage begins to spread and spider out.

In the case where the damage is bigger than a quarter, on any of your auto glass-windshield, side windows, or rear windows-it's time to get the auto glass replaced.

Essentially, repairing the glass when it's already been damaged to the extent of a quarter or larger, you're just biding your time and greatly compromising the overall strength and structural support of your vehicle.

Of course, after reading so much information on auto glass, you may be overwhelmed by the prospect of finding a properly trained auto glass installer who will use high quality auto glass in your vehicle. This is where Glass.net can help!
