All these things are used in major forms but when it comes to minor some portion of potassium oxide and aluminum oxide is also added in the composition. Silica is considered the most important material as its weightage in making glass is comprised of sixty to seventy percent. The soda ash used in glass manufacturing help in reducing the melting point of the glass which helps in molding it for providing it desirous shape. Nowadays windshield of a vehicle is also comprised of an additional material called polyvinyl butyryl which is fitted inside of the double layer of the glass. It holds the property of sticking the glass material at one spot which prevents the shattering up of the whole glass even after facing the hard stroke.
