Laminated safety glass takes the idea of safety glass a step further. Tempered glass is very safe, but if somehow broken, still results in loose pieces of broken glass. Although dull, these can still be a hassle. Laminated safety glass keeps those pieces of glass safely in place.
Laminated safety glass is crafted by adhering two pieces of annealed glass together by a vinyl layer (EVA). The vinyl interlayer holds the glass together if the glass is broken or impaled.
Laminated safety glass is commonly used for automotive windshields, but the safety benefits are applicable to the household too. A table top made from laminated glass would be a perfect fit in a household with children.
One of the safest forms of glass is laminated glass. It’s strong enough to be used in many high-traffic areas where safety and reliability are paramount. Laminated glass, when struck, tends to crack in a circular, spider-web type pattern, but rarely breaks outright.
