Type of Glass:
The windshield of a car is made from laminated glass, which has three layers. But the back glass isn’t laminated glass. It is made from tempered glass, which is a different type of glass. The front windshield is designed in a way to be shatter-proof.
This means the glass will not shatter when it sustains damage. On the other hand, the back glass will shatter when pebbles hit it or the vehicle is involved in an accident. But the back glass shatters in pebble-like tiny pieces. This feature prevents the occupants of the car from getting glass-related injuries.
Need for Cleanup:
During a back glass replacement, the glass technician will first need to perform a clean-up thoroughly. This is because the rear window glass shatters and the small pieces are everywhere. The inside of the car also needs proper cleaning before the replacement process can begin.
The structure of the back glass is a little different than other auto glass of a car. The rear window glass connects to a defrost grid. The function of this grid is to melt the ice gathered on the glass during snowfall. That is why the technician will take some more time for a replacement.
