A chip or crack in your windscreen can spread for many reasons, sudden temperature drop, even navigating a speed bump too quickly so left un-repaired you or your insurance company could be left with the cost of replacing the whole screen and costing you your excess charges It is a misconceived fact that fixing a chip or crack in a windscreen means replacing the whole screen, so getting a chip or crack checked or repaired can save you and your insurance company money. The effects of maintaining a chip or crack free screen are vital for the safety of your vehicle and the driving of it. The structure of the front end of your vehicle relies heavily on the strength of your windscreen. A windscreen that is not structurally sound can affect the deployment of your air bags in the event of a front end collision; a windscreen defect can also mean your car could fail its Roadworthy test. Did you know that a chip or crack that is repaired will provide a stronger base than undamaged glass itself thanks to the resin that is used to formulate the bond when carrying out a repair? So how does it work? Windscreen repair is a process that combines modern technology and skill to fill a damaged area on a windscreen with special clear adhesive resin. The resin is then cured with an ultraviolet light. When done properly, the damaged area’s strength is restored, as is 99% of the clarity. When repairing a windscreen it is important to start with a clean work area. Any dust, dirt, or contaminants in or on the glass can result in scarring or trapped particles that will permanently be visible in the final repair. Any moisture can cause future cracks when the glass cools or heats. Almost every chip in automotive safety glass will never grow once that the resin has been applied. Stone chip and crack damage Many types of stone damage can be successfully repaired. Bullseyes, cracks, starbreaks or a combination of all three, can be repaired without removing the glass, eliminating the risk of leaking or bonding problems sometimes associated with windscreen replacement as well as unwanted replacement costs should your insurance company not replace your screen.
