Windshield-spiderweb
Automobile windshield with "spider web" cracking typical of laminated safety glass.

Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when glass breaks. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, which might be made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), or thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). When broken, it caused a "spider web" crack pattern.
