Julie Schimmelpenningh, global architectural applications manager for Saflex, said, 'No other interlayer brand delivers the complete spectrum of colours for laminated glass

SGS strongly recommends the use of laminated glass
on the other glazed surfaces of the car, such as side windows, sunroofs and backlite, to offer a whole protection.
In their appeal, the O'Haras argued that FMVSS 205 differs markedly from FMVSS 208, because the former establishes only a "minimum safety standard" for auto glass; in fact, in 2002 NHTSA withdrew a requirement that carmakers use laminated glass
, except in windshields.
