Our Windscreen Chip Repair Process
Prepare Chip / Cracks
This step involves cleaning and possibly slight drilling on the chip to allow a smooth surface for the resin to bond to.
Using specialised tools and industry leading products we inject a special resin into the glass under pressure and remove excess air.
The hardening treatment involves a special UV light to cure the resin. This causes it to set, filling all the cracks and holes completely.
After a quick cleanup of the area the chip and cracks will be hidden as much as possible. This whole process is usually completed in 15-30 minutes.

Please Note: Windscreen chip repair will never return your glass to a perfect condition. You will always be able to see a slight difference in the glass where the repair was completed.
This is because the resin has a different composition to your actual glass. This is the same for every windscreen repairer or repair kit.
With laminated safety glass your windscreen can withstand quite substantial impacts from flying rocks that may be kicked up from other car tyres when travelling on the road.
However all it takes it a stone travelling at a certain angle with the right amount of force for you to encounter a stone chip on your windscreen.
