Windscreen repair is now the accepted alternative to replacement for windscreens with stone chips and short cracks.
A repair works by injecting an acrylic resin into the area of damaged glass. When cured with the application of 365nm Ultra Violet light the repair will restore both strength and optical performance to the damaged area of glass.
The advantages of repair compared to replacement are low material cost, low vehicle downtime (20 minutes from start to back on the road) and no disturbance of the original windscreen bond so no risk of water leaks.
A windscreen repair also has a much smaller carbon footprint than that of replacement.
For these reasons, windscreen repair is now the preferred choice of most motor insurance companies garages, fleet operators and even windscreen replacement companies when it comes to dealing with windscreen damage.
