This video showcases two different types of glass used in outdoor machines: tempered glass and AR laminated glass. Both types were subjected to impact testing and smashed to demonstrate their differences.
Firstly, let’s take a look at tempered glass. While it’s stronger than regular glass, it can still shatter under strong impact. When tempered glass breaks, it splits into small pieces that may cause harm to people nearby.
By contrast, AR laminated glass offers superior safety performance. It uses a polymer interlayer to bond two sheets of glass together, which ensures that even if it breaks, the glass fragments adhere tightly to the polymer. This means shattered glass won’t fly around and is easier to clean up. As a result, AR laminated glass is widely used in situations where high safety is required, such as car windows and building exteriors.
Through this test, we demonstrated how the two types of glass break differently. We hope this video provides useful information to help you better understand different types of glass.
