Here we have Charlie working on another piece of limo glass. It is 3/16″ Tempered Super Grey glass for an Escalade limo. He is thoroughly checking the quality and precision of the window. We will go through every inch of the window to ensure that there are no bubbles in the glass, that the angles are measured precisely, the curve is correct, and the size is to your specifications.
So far you have seen us make 3/16″ Tempered and also 3/16″ Laminated, but this is not the only size glass that we carry.
Our Tempered glass comes in 1/8″ and 3/16″. Tempered glass is a single sheet of glass that has been baked in a super heated oven up to 1200° and then quenched. This process strengthens the glass, making it up to 4 times harder than regular glass. The glass will be brittle so it will break into small chunks instead of dangerous shards.
Our Laminated glass comes in 1/8″ (5/16″ finished size) and 3/16″ (7/16″ finished size). This glass is dual pane and laminated which accounts for the increased finish size. We take two sheets of glass and pour a resin between them. The resin will cure creating a safety lamination. The resin lamination will keep the glass bonded together even when it breaks.
