The main types of glass in the automotive windshield market are laminated glass and tempered glass.Laminated glass is made up of a thin layer of vinyl between two layers of glass.

Laminated glass does not break easily, and hence it is used in most of the vehicles’ windshields.The various material types include thermoset material and thermoplastic material and involve several windshield positions, such as front windshield and rear windshield.
