WHAT IS BALLISTIC GLASS
Ballistic glass or bulletproof glass is a solid and thick type of glass that is resistant to being penetrated when struck, although it is not completely impenetrable.
This glass is still optically transparent even though it’s made from a combination of two or more types of glasses. It usually is a mix of soft glass, which gives it flexibility, and robust glass.
USES OF BALLISTIC GLASS
The most common businesses that use this type of glass are banks, jewelry stores, and embassies. This glass is also used in vehicles such as limousines and other high-profile owned cars.
The military also makes good use of this glass in their cars and planes. There are even some companies that sell a type of ballistic glass to protect smartphone screens (although it’s a different kind of glass).
COMPOSITION OF BALLISTIC GLASS
This type of glass is usually very thick; it can go from 3/4 in. – 3.5 in. It’s composed mostly of polycarbonate, thermoplastic, and layers of laminated glass.
The intention is to make glass that protects against a firearm but still has the appearance and clarity of regular glass. This type of glass goes through a tempering process that improves the ability to withstand shock.
This process includes heating, cooling, and chemical processes that make it stronger. This type of glass is strictly tested by firing projectiles against it at set distances and set patterns. The level of protection this glass offers is based on the ability to stop a projectile traveling at a particular speed.
