When you think about avoiding damage to your windshields, you probably think the causes are accidental impact or careless drivers. Even the most careful driver can get their windshield damaged. Windshield glass can get pits, chips, scratches or cracks from natural circumstances.
It’s known that glass exposed to high temperatures expands slightly. During the winter months, glass contracts or becomes slightly smaller. Under heat, the glass can shatter from the pressure of expanding or contracting too quickly, (when it cools off too fast).
Those fine wires are used to heat the glass. This helps to defrost ice and also defog the back glass. These defroster wires are incredibly useful in the winter as they clear up whatever frost or fog you have on your back window to allow you better visibility.
The back windows are made of tempered glass to protect the passengers in case any accident occurs. When broken, tempered glass shatters into tiny, blunt pieces that do not cause fatal injuries.
