Ordinary glass windows are brittle and break into long, sharp pieces, causing serious and sometimes fatal injuries. An important feature of laminated glass is its performance under impact. That is, the internal layers of laminated glass have the capacity to absorb the energy of impact and resist penetration. Safety hazards caused due to breakages are minimized with the use of laminated glass. Although the glass may break, the glass fragments will adhere to the plastic interlayer, minimizing the risk of injury and property damage.
