The “Securit” tempering process was discovered in Saint-Gobain’s laboratories in 1929, in the course of research undertaken at the request of the automobile industry. The process consists of strengthening the glass by very fast blast cooling (from 600 to 300° C in a few seconds) and is used to make automotive, building, and specialty flat glass. Raw glass can be clear or tinted in various shades.
In 1909, the French chemist Edouard Benedictus, invented laminated glass. The process bonds two sheets of glass using a sheet of transparent plastic interlayer, producing a safety glass. If the glass is broken by an impact, the plastic interlayer retains the fragments and the glass cracks in the shape of a spider’s web.
