Windshield Through The Ages

Early cars were little more than motorized buckboards, which is why there was never a need for windshields. But as time passed by, cars started to gain speed and the need for windshield arose. In 1904, when windshields were introduced for the first time, they were a horizontally-divided piece of the glass plate. When the top half becomes too dirty to see through, the driver could fold it down.

As the number of cars increased, accidents were inevitable where flying shards of glass made it far abhorrent. This led to improvisations in the structure and quality of the then windshields that were not completely safe. Adding on to this, people preferred enclosed structures which eventually led to the current structure of windshields.

Current day windshields are made of laminated glass that have an inter layer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. Its high strength prevents the glass from breaking into large sharp pieces. As a result, visibility in other parts of the windshield is not hampered, enabling the driver to see clearly through the undamaged part.
