It’s a good thing that the windshield repair industry has become smarter over time by looking for improvements to their processes and products.

The trial-and-error use of windshield resin offers a perfect example.

In the early days, all kinds of resins were used to fill cracks and damage without really knowing the science behind whether or not it would perform; whether it would discolor or withstand the normal flexing and temperature changes that windshields are exposed to.

Now thanks to research, GlasWeld technicians know the answers to these questions. Those who are using our windshield repair kits and resins can be confident that it will perform—and they know it will last because our resins have been designed to support the following principals:

  • Resins must be cured correctly: For resins to cure and harden, they need a specific UV wavelength specification and exposure duration.
  • Resins must offer a certain tensile strength: The right resin tensile strength is needed to restore the integrity of a windshield long-term. For instance, resins work by having both cohesive and adhesive strength. Cohesive strength gives resin the ability to hold together, whereas, adhesive strength ensures it adheres to the glass.GlasWeld Resigns
  • Resin must match the type of damage and color of windshield: Choosing resins from a viscosity and tint standpoint makes the difference between success and failure. Thicker viscosities work better for repairing a bull’s-eye and thinner viscosities are more conducive to smaller and tighter star breaks. While tinted resins are chosen based on types of damage and location.

Don’t repeat history. Learn from it by purchasing only GlasWeld resin for your windshield repair kit.
