Windshield repair is a process that combines modern technology with skill to fill a damaged area on an automotive windshield with special clear adhesive resin. The resin is then cured with ultraviolet light. When performed properly, the damaged area’s strength is restored, as is most of the surface clarity.
When repairing a windshield, it is important to start with a clean work area. Any dust, dirt, or contaminants may ultimately result in trapped particles that will be visible in the final repair. Excess moisture can also cause future cracks when the glass cools or heats.
Plains Plate Glass & Mirror Co. provides glass chip repair for auto glass and windshields in the Plainview, TX area.
Modern windshields are generally composed of laminated safety glass, a treated substance which consists of layers of curved glass with a plastic laminated sheet placed between them for safety. Motorbike windshields, on the other hand, are often made of high-impact acrylic plastic.
Today’s windshield can be viewed as a safety device just like seat belts or air bags. The installation of the auto glass is performed with an automotive-grade urethane that’s designed specifically for automobiles. The adhesive creates a molecular bond between the glass and the vehicle. If the adhesive bond fails at any point on the glass, it can reduce the effectiveness of the air bag and substantially compromise the structural integrity of the roof.
