RE: [DML] Ever wonder how your windshield is made?



One part of it is UV resistance.  Look at the back window of a miata.
They start to fog even in the first year or two of life.

I have often wondered why windshields are still made from glass. Why not

make the windshield out of thicker transparent vinyl? Or for better 
scratch resistance, you could use a polycarbonate material. As long as 
it can be pushed out from the inside in the event of an accident, I 
can't see why it would be a bigger problem than glass.

I hope someone can answer this question. I have no engineering 
experience, just a load of questions. :)
