Bullet-proof glass

An industry-acknowledged misnomer, the phrase “bullet-proof glass” actually refers to what is really bullet-resistant glass. All glass will shatter and the thermoplastic can only absorb so much energy. While these elements, used in combination, can slow – and often stop – a bullet, it must be stressed that there is no such thing as bullet-proof glass. At least one member of the glass and glazing industry has previously said that the use of the phrase “bullet-proof” in relation to glass can create a false sense of security in those whose lives may depend on it.
