What is a Windshield
Your car’s windshield is a lot more than just a piece of glass stuck on the front of your car. In fact windshields never get the credit they deserve for the sophisticated piece of technology that they are. Even though, to the naked eye the windshield appears to be nothing more than a standard piece of windshield glass, those that are installed on most automobiles are actually composed of 3 layers – 2 sheets of tempered glass which sandwich a polyvinyl layer in between them. Tempered glass is made to withstand the shock of impact and is extremely durable; on the other hand, if something such as stones, nails or pebbles does manage to make it through, the layer of poly-vinyl-butyral stops it dead in its tracks. This layer is also why most cracks on the windshield repair area appear as spider-webs.
Types of Windshield Damages
Depending on the kind and size of projectile which hits your car’s windshields, it may sustain a variety of different damages, these may include:
Bulls Eye/Spider Web – These are the most common type of windshield damages. They are named thus because they have a center of impact which is surrounded by propagating concentric damage lines.
Star Break – Such damages have a well-defined point of impact which has radiating cracks giving it a distinct star like appearance.
Half Moon Crack: This kind of crack has an appearance similar to that of a half Bulls Eye crack, hence the name.
Edge Crack – A crack which extends as a line which may or may not have a discernible point of impact, such cracks happen most often when a very small crack gets aggravated due to a sudden bump on the road.
How We Process Windshield Repair
We being experts at repairing windshields can easily repair most common damages which are about the size of a quarter or about 6 inches long if they are cracks. We repair damages by firstly removing the air which gets trapped between cracks and then filling them up with a special resin which both strengthens the auto glass while retaining its visibility.
