The frit is a black enamel band that is baked into the edges of the windshield glass.
The purpose of the frit is to provide an etched surface that allows adhesive to bond to the glass. When a manufacturer installs a new windshield the glass is bonded to the vehicle with the frit as the contact point between the glass and the frame.
Thick outer layer of glass providing protection against the elements.
- Blocks 99.9% of sun’s harmful UV rays
- Reducing the solar energy entering the car
- Preventing the rise of interior temperatures
- Reducing the load on the air-conditioning, thereby reducing fuel consumption
- Reducing cool-down time after sun-soaked conditions
- Reducing skin irritation caused by sunlight
- Blunt & Sharp Impact resistant
- Reduce breakage
Clear plastic layer that is sandwiched between Soda-Lime Glass and Hyperformance® Tough Glass. The glass and the PVB are sealed by a series of pressure rollers and then heated. This combination of pressure and heat chemically and mechanically bonds the PVB to the glass.
- Improves Acoustic Properties
- Absorbs energy during point impact and distributes across windshield
- Provides glass resistance to penetration from Flying projectiles
Yes, the added durability to the windshield makes it more scratch resistant on the inner surface.
Chemically Strengthened Glass can flex upon impact. This flexure helps the thinner laminate absorb different impact events from sharp and blunt objects.
