The Windshield Repair Proces
The first step in repairing a windshield is to assess the damage. Types of windshield damage fall into two basic categories – chips or cracks. Cracks are normally the expansion of a previous chip but can also be caused by stress between the glass and the frame of your vehicle. Windshield chips take many forms.
The next step is to completely clear the damage area debris. With the area clean, windshield repair resin is forced into the damaged area until all the voids are filled. Heat is applied to the repair resin to begin the curing process. After curing between 20 and 45 minutes (depending on the damage). Your good-as-new windshield is ready for the road.
Damage to a windshield that has penetrated all layers of laminated glass and cracks over 6 inches long have already degraded the windshield’s strength and structural integrity to the point that the glass cannot be safely repaired.
