Automotive: Past And Present

November 22nd, 2017

Today's drivers, perhaps, it is difficult to imagine a model of a car without glasses. Meanwhile, exactly as were the first car. Cars the late nineteenth century to form little different from the open horse-drawn carriages carts. However, the rate of 'iron horses' speed was higher than their living counterparts, and therefore it was necessary to protect the occupant from the air stream. So in the car appeared windshield. The first auto-glass produced from the same material as regular windows. Of course, this glass was very fragile and broke into pieces upon impact, which posed a considerable danger to the occupants of people. Several later began to use tempered glass, but it is broken up upon impact.

Shatterproof Automotive solution was found in the 20e's, when construction vehicles used the new invention of the French scientist, created a three-layered glass, consisting of two layers of glass and a layer of film between them. The essence of the invention was that the three-layer glass, laminated glass, or, at impact is not divided into fragments, and remained on the film. Installation auto glass, made using the new technology has made travel by car is much safer, as shards of glass are not traumatized passengers. In addition, the installation of a windshield of laminated glass has contributed the fact that the replacement windshield was performed less frequently. Now you do not have to change all the glass due to minor cracks. Another material for the production of auto-glass – Stalin – is also a product of French scientists. It was invented in 1929 and has since been widely used in automotive.

Stalin – it has often hardened, solid glass. Feature it is that if the force of impact is very high and the glass of stalinite is broken, it shatters into small pieces with blunt edges that do not hurt people. Today, for the manufacture of auto-glass is used as a triplex, and Stalin. Production technologies continue to evolve. In particular, are spreading atermalnye glass that trap heat of sunlight, allowing the passenger compartment is not heated. Developed a variety of coatings that reduce pollution glasses. Applied electric heating of glass. Create a glass with high sound insulation. Future plans include the creation of super-strong glass that can withstand even the most severe blows.
