Windshield repair is a common method used by professionals to fix chips and cracks in car windshields. The process involves injecting a resin into the affected area, then using a heat source to harden the resin and fill in any chips or cracks. This helps to prevent the crack or splinter from spreading and strengthens the area. The technician then drills the chip area and injects a special repair resin or adhesive to seal the glass chip. The adhesive is allowed to cure to completely seal the damaged area.
This is a simple, inexpensive process that will prevent the biggest crack and keep your vehicle safe. To ensure that the adhesion is correct during the repair, it is important to thoroughly clean the outside of the windshield where the repair will be performed. Professionals rarely use this type of repair method, since it is not the most effective repair method. At West Texas, we specialize in auto glass repair and auto glass replacement.
