 You sure about the layering? I thought there was tempered glass that is a 
single layer used in window panes and for side and rear windows in cars and 
laminated safety glass that is 3 layers, also known as auto glass, that is 
used for windshields among other things. Could easily be wrong, but if fully 
tempered glass is laminated it is news to me.
