Windshield Injury Potential as a Function of Windshield Installation Method 700430

A series of carefully controlled simulated barrier crashes at speeds from 20 to 30 mph are used to compare the relative safety of rubber gasket, butyl tape and polysulfide adhesive methods of installing windshields. Only subtle differences were found in the severity index and the laceration index. There is an indication that the rubber gasket installation has a higher resistance to interlayer tears and the lacerations from impacts to polysulfide installations are slightly more severe. Head attitude at impact was found to have a significant effect on interlayer tears and resultant lacerations.
