Car Glass Repair Process
A car glass repair needs to clean the broken pieces and sucking out the air from the crack. We use a vacuum cup to do the same. Now our technician takes the transparent resign into injection and fills the pit. It brings out remaining air and the resign gets inside the crack. Once resign is filled, we treat it with Ultra-violet rays. It becomes transparent and hard. Now is the time to remove the excess resign. Once the crack repair process is complete technician applies another chemical to finally clean the surface. As a result, you have a smooth glass surface restored to its original strength. The transparency is restored to about 90-95% based on the type and size of the crack. Within 30 minutes of starting the glass repair, your car is ready to get back on road.
