A windshield research program has been conducted at Libbey-Owens-Ford's Technical Center during the past two years which required the destructive testing of about 4500 production-size experimental windshields.
Safety performance characteristics were investigated as affected by thicker plastic interlayer, thinner and thicker glass plies, and plate versus float glass. These data provide a basis for recommendation of an improved windshield design.
