Laminated glass is produced by bonding two or more layers of ordinary annealed glass together with a plastic interlayer, usually polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The PVB is sandwiched by the glass which is passed through rollers to expel any air pockets and form the initial bond then heated to around 70 °C in a pressurized oil bath. The tint at the top of some car windshields is in the PVB. A typical laminated makeup would be 3 mm glass / 0.38 mm interlayer / 3 mm glass. This gives a final product that would be referred to as 6.38 laminated glass. Multiple laminates and thicker glass increases the strength. Bulletproof glass is often made of several float glass, toughened glass and Perspex panels, and can be as thick as 100 mm. A similar glass is often used in airliners on the front windows, often three sheets of 6 mm toughened glass with thick PVB between them
Tempered glass can be laminated, but laminated glass cannot be tempered.

Laminated glass was invented by Libby-Owens-Ford. It was made for the auto industry
Laminated glass and tempered glass are not necessarily the same thing. Tempered glass cannot be drilled, but untempered laminated glass could (probably) be drilled. Holes in tempered glass are drilled before tempering.
it depends on the auto maker
Laminated glass is used in home construction and has many different applications. It can be used for safety and security in windows as glass is normally very easily broken but once laminated it becomes much tougher.

Yes, it is laminated glass.
The quick and short answer to this question is "yes". It's all based on how well the glass is manufactured. There is a large amount of heat used during the manufacturing process of laminated or toughened glass which temporarily weakens it. The glass is heated to a melting point for which it can be reshaped and then cooled quickly to hold the new shape. It is during this process that the laminated glass is at its' most vulnerable point and needs to be handled with precision until it has cooled. Improper alignment of the rollers which are used during the reshaping and cooling process are generally the cause of these small waves or lines in the glass. These waves and lines are not indicative of poor quality and are not considered defects in the glass. However, if the waves are so apparent that images appear overly distorted then a new replacement glass should be requested.This post was made by www.autoglasslocator.com
Laminated glass is the best. As it breaks the plastic or vinyl between the two panes help the glass from flying around.
