Introduction to windshield
In layman words the windshield or windscreen of an aircraft, car, bus, motorbike or tram is the front window. Modern type of windshields are usually manufactured from laminated safety glass, a type of treated glass, which consists of two generally curved sheets of glass with a plastic layer laminated between them for security, and are glued into the window frame. Motorbike windshields are often made out of high-impact acrylic plastic.
Windshield repair is a process that gets together with the modern technology and skill to fill a damaged area on a windshield with an adhesive resin. The resin is then repaired with an ultraviolet light. When done, the damaged area’s strength is restored, and clarity.
When repairing a windshield, start with a clean work area. Any dust, dirt, or contaminants in or on the glass can result in scratching or trapped particles that will be visible in the final repair. Any moisture can result in future cracks when the glass cools or heats. Many types of stone damage can be successfully repaired. Bulls’ eyes, cracks, star breaks or a combination of all three can be repaired without removing the glass, eliminating the risk of leaking or bonding problems which is associated with replacement.
