Types of Chips

The chips found in your windscreen

Modern windscreens are made from laminated glass and consist of layers of glass and polymer forming an expandable and tear resistant assembly. In the event of an impact the glass may chip but will remain in one piece. By leaving a chipped windscreen untreated an additional impact, hot or even cold weather, may cause the glass to become unrepairable and will have to be replaced, sometimes at great expense. The best thing for you to do is to call us to make an appointment today. We can advise you on the best way to fix your chip quickly and efficiently, causing the least amount of disruption to you.

The repair process

Chipped windscreens can be repaired by injecting a synthetic resin into them. A special vacuum pump is placed over the chip where moisture, dust and air are drawn out. Then the synthetic resin is pumped in. Finally excess resin is cleaned off and the screen is polished.
