Float glass is made of sodium silicate and calcium silicate so, it is also called as soda lime glass. It is flat and clear with a very slight greenish tint to it. These glasses are available from 2mm to 20mm thickness. This is the normal glass as most people know it.

Laminated glass is the combination of layers of normal glass with Vynal in-between. So, it has more weight than normal glass. It is thicker than normal glass and is UV proof and offers reduction in sound. This glass is also used for vehicle windscreens.
