On a new car, every part comes from the original equipment manufacture (the OEM), including the windshield. For windshield replacement, you have the option to select a replacement made by a company that manufactures OEM windshields, such as PPG, or glass made from non-OEM manufactures (“aftermarket glass”).
Both OEM and aftermarket glass must comply with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards,
but -- there are two important OEM benefits:
An OEM replacement windshield is produced from original equipment-style tooling. This type of windshield will have the appearance of your car’s original windshield and will fit properly in the window frame making noise and leakage problems much less likely.
OEM glass manufactures partner with automobile producers to enhance overall functionality and improved performance. Because of there close work with car makers, OEM manufactures have a greater knowledge of the engineering demands a car can place on the windshield and their replacement windshields are made using the same quality assurance systems as for new vehicles.
Selecting an auto glass shop is very important, not just because of the windshield but also the quality of the job done.
