The safest glass available now- Laminated glass

Scientists and researchers were looking for a shatter proof glass for a long time. Finally in 1903 a chemist from named Edouard Benedictus inspired by an accident in his lab invented the laminated glass. This glass has the basic advantage of not shattering when it will break under impact. These glasses consist of multiple layers of glass with a layer of polymer like PVB or polymeric butyral sandwiched between them. These glasses have revolutionized the field of cyclone resistant, earthquake resistant and tornado resistant construction. Apart from their primary benefit of being shatter resistant, these glasses have the ability to block outside noises. The polymeric layer absorbs the sound waves and dampens the incoming sound thus providing a perfect sound proof environment. Moreover these glasses are enabled to be resistant to ultraviolet rays of the sun. They can block up to 99%of these harmful UV rays. Laminated glass has elevated safety in many industries over the years.
