Tips For Repairing Chip In The Windshield

Your car's windscreen is prone to chips from time to time. Chips and cracks will deepen with time, whether brought on by a collision or a stone flying up from the road. The windshield only needs to sustain a single little chip before it starts to shatter severely. Yes, it's small, but you want to be secure. Ignoring these little chips could prove dangerous in the long run. These small chips could potentially impair your view of the road and cause problems when you're driving.

Windshields are one of the most crucial components of your car and serve more purposes than just aesthetics. Most people are unaware of how important this vehicle glass component is to safety. However, it should be noted that they are specifically made to:

  • Shield drivers from any external elements
  • Save your life if something terrible happens
  • Avoid having the car’s roof fall in on your passengers' heads in the event of an accident
  • Provide you an unimpeded, clear view of the road ahead

Minor windshield cracks and chips can be fixed at home using a repair kit. Because of its dependability, affordability, durability, clarity, and simplicity of application, Maven UV Glass Windshield & Commercial Glass Repair Resins are in high demand. Here's how to keep a cracked windshield from endangering your safety. 

Things To Keep In Mind Beforehand

Examine the size and type of chip and quantity of debris surrounding the damaged region as part of the initial inspection. So that no moisture or debris is sealed into the mended place, clean the chip's area thoroughly.

The repair leaves a hazy mark on the windshield if there is a lot of debris in the chipped area. If this is an issue, the driver will not be able to see through the windshield properly.

An ultraviolet light is used to solidify a particular resin compound that is used to seal the chip. Clear after drying, the resin resembles windshield glass.

Windshield Chip Repair

Get a windshield repair kit first from the Perigee Direct website. Check the expiration date, if one is listed, as the epoxy resin in the kit has a shelf life. 

Clean the exterior of the windshield well where the repair will be made to ensure optimal adherence during the procedure. Never, however, spray glass cleaner directly on a chip or crack. Instead, use a microfiber cloth and a small amount of rubbing alcohol to clean the surface. To remove any stray glass fragments in the chip or crack, use a pin or thumbtack.

To reveal one side of the adhesive, peel back the paper covering from the adhesive patch. The circular cutout in the middle of this patch is the maximum size that the chip can be. Apply the patch on the exterior-facing side of the windshield glass, which is clean and dry, and center it over the chip.

Pull your automobile out of the garage or out of the shade and into the open sunlight if the epoxy glue in your repair kit needs UV light to cure. Save windshield repair for a warm, sunny day if at all possible. If it has been raining, make sure to dry the chip or crack with a hair drier before applying the epoxy.
