Q : What causes a windscreen chip ?
A : Windscreens today are what is called laminated glass this means that the windscreen is actually 2 pieces of glass with a clear laminate between the two layers. When a stone hits the front windscreen it causes an air pocket in the top layer of the glass, the silver or black discolouration you will see is just a reflection of the glass pocket similar to a crack in a mirror. The windscreen repairs that have any colour distortion like this are in need to be repaired asap to prevent them from getting worse.
Q : What causes the chip to crack ?
A : On a cold morning when the windscreen freezes the water vapour gets inside the air pocket of the windscreen chip. As the water vapour freezes it expands the pressure caused by the ice expanding is what causes the windscreen crack. Sometimes the stone chip will not be completely filled with moisture but when you turn the defrost on the front windscreen the rapid change in the temperature can also causes the stone chip to crack this is why pouring boiling water from the kettle is not a good idea as if you have a stone chip this probably will cause it to crack further.
Q : How does the windscreen repair work ?
A : To make it simple we clean the windscreen stone chip next we prepare the damage by making a pathway to the air pocket then we fill the chip with a specialist glass resin. what this does is restores the car window back to 100% of its strength and ensures there is no where for moisture to gather there for nowhere for the water to freeze and cause the stone chip to crack.
Q : Does the stone chip vanish after the windscreen repair ?
A : This is impossible to make the windscreen repair completely vanish. The tv ads most people have seen are computer generated.
