I am certified by GlasWeld, an international leader in glass repair for more than two decades. Active involvement in industry task forces and trade associations ensures that GlasWeld customers are part of a truly progressive team of glass repair professionals.GlasWeld system "fuses" advanced technology, industry expertise and precision tools for the very best windshield repair results. It was designed to achieve the best results on all types of damage: bull’s eyes, stone chips, star breaks, and cracks. These are fast, efficient repairs, which are insurance approved.
When a road pebble or rock collides with a windshield, it chips the outer layer of glass, creating a chip or small crack. The chipped glass particles become surrounded by tiny air pockets, causing visual distortion. These stone chips and small cracks happen all the time.
GlasWeld’s system evacuates the air to fill the cavities with a specially formulated liquid resin which, when cured with ultra-violet light and GlasWeld Pro-Cur, clears the distortion and bonds the loose glass particles & prevents the damage from spreading.
Windshields are made from two thin layers of glass, with a sheet of plastic poly vinyl butyral (PVB) in the center. The function of the plastic interlayer is to bond two pieces of glass together and prevent large pieces of glass from being dislodged when broken. When the outer layer is broken, the types of breaks encountered can vary (bull’s eye, spider cracks & etc.). Air can get trapped inside and must be removed before the damaged area can be repaired. When the air is removed, resin can fill the area and repair the damage correctly and completely. Once cured the resin bonds the glass back together and permanently repairs the damage.
