How Windshield Repair Works

Windshield repair will save your windshield from being unnecessarily replaced. And not all repairs need to look like they were simply filled with some kind of glue and left to dry. Done correctly, with GlasWeld products, windshield repair will not only look great, it will keep your windshield intact. The following describes how to repair a windshield using the GlasWeld repair process.

The GlasWeld process involves removing all of the air from a damage, injecting it with a UV curable resin, and then curing this resin with a UV curing lamp.  Our resins keep the damage from spreading, and keep the repair as close to invisible as possible.

Injector

First, an injector, such as our G3 shown here, is placed over the damage where all of the air inside the damage can be drawn out. Then, using this same injector, resin is injected into the damage. To see how this injector works, click here.

Resin

The GlasWeld resin that is used to fill the void created by the damage is designed to cure under a specific UV wavelength. Also, this resin does not shrink. Many resins, under different weather conditions, will shrink and expand, exposing the damage to the elements. Not our resins. They are built for the duration. Click here to learn more.

Once the injector has removed all air and has injected resin into the damage, it is now time to cure it. The resin cures at a specific UV wavelength. The GlasWeld curing lights put out that exact UV wavelength. This creates a lasting repair that will not give in to the elements nor to the twisting and flexing that every windshield goes through.
