Hi Keri,
 
40 gauge is the better glass for optical clarity. The 30 gauge is better if the glass needs to be rolled or folded frequently. So the answer is both are great but sometimes one is slightly better than the other depending upon the use and design of the dodger.
 
The O'sea is softer than the Strataglass and is often easier to work with. Other than this they are very similar products (both highly scratch resistant).
 
Thanks, Matt

Best Regards,

Hello,
Can you tell me if it is more typical to use a 30 gauge glass or a 40 gauge glass for dodger windows?

Also are there any advantages of O'Sea Polished glass over Strataglass or vice versa?

Thank you for your assistance!
