Bulletproof glass was revealed by mere accident in the middle of 17th century. Prince Rupert’s Drops arose in England by placing molten glass into cold water that made the glass almost imperishable. The resultant teardrop-shaped objects could effortlessly endure a severe effect to the rounded end but would shatter upon even the slenderest blow to the tail end. In 1903, Edouard Benedictus, a French chemist inadvertently dropped a flask on the ground. As the flask held liquid nitrate solution, which coated the glass with a plastic layer, the flask broke, but did not shatter. That year is marked as the beginning for the R&D (Research & Development) of bulletproof glass.
From Military to Museums
The rapid evolution of bulletproof glass indicates to its popularity in commercial and military use. The advancement of thicker and more hard-wearing versions of bulletproof glass that were fitted in gas masks, trucks and transportation vehicles to shield soldiers on the battlefield. Due to its high cost, personal vehicles with ballistic glass were only reasonably priced to criminals and the upper class. One of the most common uses of bulletproof glass started in 1981 when the vehicle of Pope John Paul II was prepared with this protective material; the move was encouraged by a murder attempt that took place in May of that year. The Musée du Louvre decided to put the Mona Lisa behind bulletproof glass after it was attacked by acid and rocks in 1956.
