Safety glass for road transport is a special type of glass used in vehicles like cars, buses, and trucks to improve passenger safety during accidents or collisions. Unlike regular glass, safety glass is designed to reduce the risk of injuries caused by shattered glass.

Therefore, to ensure product quality and consumer safety, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has made it mandatory for manufacturers to undergo BIS registration and obtain the BIS ISI mark before selling their products in the market. Manufacturers can use the ISI Mark on their products only after obtaining a license from BIS that is granted after BIS registration. The presence of the ISI mark on a product indicates that it complies with BIS's stringent quality standards.

Road transport safety glass falls under the IS 2553(Part 2):2019 standard. This rule outlines the requirements, sampling, and testing methods for safety glass used in car windshields, backlights, and side windows.

The requirements for safety glass include:

1.      It must be made from 'AA' and 'A' quality flat transparent sheet glass that meets the requirements of IS 2835:1987.

2.      Float glass can also be used for making safety glass. The thickness of the safety glass must adhere to the standard and be measured using the specified method.

3.      Packaging and marking should be done accordingly.

4.      Each package must be marked with the information specified in the standard.

5.      The standard mark (ISI Mark) should be present on each piece of safety glass, indicating compliance with all specification requirements.

6.       Manufacturers must obtain a BIS license from the Bureau of Indian Standards to use the standard mark (ISI Mark).

Tests to be performed on safety glass for road transport include:

Light Transmittance Test, Head-form Test, Fragmentation Test, Weathering Test, Cross-cut Test, Optical Distortion Test and Tests of Resistance to Abrasion, Temperature Changes, Fire, Chemicals, Radiation, and Humidity etc.

All these tests must be conducted in a well-equipped and staffed laboratory following the specified procedures.
