How does a windscreen chip repair work?
The windscreen repair procedure starts with cleaning the chip of any glass fragmentation; this gives a clean area that the resin can adhere to.
Once the area is clean, we remove any trapped air from the windscreen chip using a vacuum type device. A liquid acrylic resin is then injected into the damaged glass.
The resin is then cured using an ultra violet lamp, this can take a few minutes. After this procedure the resin dries to a substance stronger than the glass itself, this restores the strength to the damaged glass
