Chips and cracks on windshields are something that most of us experience at some point in our life. And while these can be dangerous, the good news is that cracks and chips are usually repairable. But what actually happens during windshield repair, in San Antonio? How does it make chips and cracks disappear?
Read on the article below to know how windshield repair at Miracle Auto Glass Center works.
There are many types of chips and cracks. Depending upon the cracks’ size and style, the repair work varies. Twelve inches or less crack can be repaired easily. If the crack on the windshield is directly in the driver’s line of sight, we recommend a windshield replacement. This is because the repaired crack could still affect the driver’s vision on the road. So, to decide the repair work, we first examine the windshield for crack, chip, and pit.
Once we identify that the chip or crack is repairable, we start the windshield repair process. Our process usually involves the following steps.
The first thing is to clean out the crack or chip. We start here because any dirt or debris in the crack can interfere with the windshield repair process. We then remove the glass fragments from the crack.
Once we clean out the cracks, the repair tool comes in handy. We have a vast range of these tools available. We position the seal on to the glass, and the applicator gets activated to create a vacuum beneath the seal.
After removing the air, we will force the resin into the crack. Over a short period of time, our quality resin starts to flow into the windshield cracks and will fill them with the clear liquid.
Applying UV light, that allows the resin to harden and complete the windshield repair process. In order for wipers to work properly, we smooth off the resin to the same level as the windshield. This is how we offer you a perfectly smooth and quality repair.
