|glass made by sandwiching a layer of plastic or resin between two sheets of glass so that if broken the fragments will not shatter|
type of glass that, when struck, bulges or breaks into tiny, relatively harmless fragments rather than shattering into large, jagged pieces. Safety glass may be made in either of two ways. It may be constructed by laminating two sheets of ordinary glass together, with a thin interlayer of plastic, or it may be produced by strengthening glass sheets by heat treatment.
