The scope of this SAE performance standard is to define the test method by which the direct solar and visible transmittance of safety glazing materials for road vehicles shall be measured. Adherence to this performance standard will facilitate writing, use and referencing of reports by government, industry and other organizations.
Rationale: This document is being written to standardize calculations and communications involving spectral transmission data from safety-glazing materials for road vehicles. This revised document now conforms with the computational convention "A" in ISO 13837.
