#1 TRIPLEX logos research - a bit of help needed

Post by ysmalkie » Wed Jan 15, 2020 10:20 am

I have been researching the TRIPLEX logos on Jaguars for quite some time.

Here goes a fairly complete sheet with logos for different glass of the e-type.

Image

As you can see, I am missing some of the logos, for example I do not have any ’64 glass logos for rear or side screens.

The side glass logos have varies quite a bit:
- The font evolved, especially on the TRIPLEX
- The AS2 seemed to be placed on the bottom for ’63 glass, but only for the door windows
- The door windows were printed in reverse (but always identical left & right)
- From ’65 (’64?) onward additional markings were introduced
- The size of the logos have varied
- The mysterious dot in the middle of XXX popped up and went away – I have no idea what it meant.
- The heart was of 2 or 3 designs varying by the shape of the S and the top.
- The headlamp glass had extra dots between TRIPLEX and TOUGHENED.
- The S (sheet) glass was mostly used for door windows while P (Plate) glass was mostly used for other side glass.
- ’67 heated boot lid glass was made in AS1 quality!..

Other symbols explained:
L – Laminated
T – Toughened, heat treated
P – Plate Glass
S – Sheet Glass
T – Toughened Glass
V – for vehicle use??
F – Float Glass, used since ’63 when float glass begun to be available
WF – Front windscreen quality – used since 65
AS1 or AS2, where AS stands for American Standard. AS1 means glass is with at least 70% transmission and can be used anywhere on a vehicle (by default used on the windshield), AS2 is used for side glass.
M3 or M6 – Manufacturer codes, describing different models of glass – used since ‘65
French Homologation Designation, used since ’54. It consists of “AGRÉÉ” and the standard designation: TP.GS.6
- AGRÉÉ meaning certified, authorized.
TP.GS. meaning “Transport Publique, Gestion de Securite” – the homologation body) and 6 is the homologation number. In ’66 the French homologation designation changed from the two line format to single line and now read: AG TPGS6.
D - German approval, introduced in ’67. It was a sine wave followed by letter D and a number. D90 was used on ‘60s Triplex glass.

The windscreen glass also varied, however to a lesser extent. There were fewer versions of it.

I need photos of the logos that are missing please - your help will be most appreciated.

Also, if your glass logo is different than specified by me for a particular year, please let me know.

Many thanks Phil. Much appreciated.

What month is your car from?

Would you have any other side/rear '64 glass?

Regards,

Tadek

Hi - it's a June '64 roadster so no rear glass. From the car's history file, the other side glass was replaced in May 1988 so we do not have the original logo.
