Hello! Thank you for your question. We are unable to provide information about glass safety. There are so many variables in glass contents, applications, and use of materials, that we cannot account for all possibilities and eventualities. For these reasons, we recommend that you check with the manufacturer of the particular glass you have questions about as this glass may be very different in composition from similar looking glass.
We can point you toward general online resources that address your question (as of August 2019):
- "How Do I Protect Myself from UV Rays?" American Cancer Society (May 2017)
- "Not All Car Windows Protect Against UV Rays," Autoblog (Jan 2017)
- "Car Windows Won't Protect You from UV Rays," Health Feed blog, University of Utah Health (May 2016)
- "Sun Safety in Cars," Skin Cancer Foundation (August 2016)
For more information, you might consider contacting Scholes Library at Alfred University, which "serves the broader research community as a specialized center for information on ceramics and glass."
Please do not hesitate to contact us with your glass-related questions in the future!
