Use Windscreen Repair Services to Keep Your View of the Road Clear
As a driver, once you hit the road there are two things that work to keep you safe. These are your windscreen and your windows. Both of them work together to keep you safe from the elements, road hazards, and external debris. With such a vital role, it’s important you care for your windscreen properly. If your car glass gets damaged, call the experts here at Best Windscreen for windscreen repair.
What Makes Car Glass Unique
Car glass shops are specialists for a reason. Installation and repair on a vehicle require specialized training, which has a lot to do with the glass itself. Glass that you may find in your home is a lot different than the glass that is found in a car. Glass used in vehicles is made to withstand more strain than glass that will be in a fixed location. In your car, you will experience intense vibrations, temperature fluctuations, and even continuous minor impacts. This can cause the more fragile glass to shatter into dangerous shards.
Car glass comes in two forms: laminated or tempered. Tempered is used in the doors while the laminated is used in the windscreen and rear of the car.
Tempered is crafted by using blowers to heat and quickly cool the glass. Rapid cooling causes the glass surface to contract and create compressive stresses. The center area creates tensile stress when it expands. The end result is a stranger glass that when broken settles into small dull square pieces instead of sharp points.
Laminated is crafted by placing a layer of thick, clear resin in between two panes of glass. This helps prevent injury by making the glass strong enough to avoid shattering on impact.
Ensuring Your Safety
If you are in an accident, your windscreen and car glass can suffer damage. Minor dents or chips can easily be repaired by a professional car glass repairman. These minor damages are filled in using a resin that is then polished to a clear shine. Cracks, on the other hand, may be more difficult to repair. When your windscreen becomes cracked, it can cause it to break if left unchecked. This makes driving with a damaged windscreen exceedingly dangerous. Depending on the size of the crack or its location, replacement may be the best option.
Leave it to the Professionals
Some things are better off left to those who have specialized training. Repairing and replacing car glass is one of them. Repairs that are not completed properly pose just as much risk to your vehicle as a damaged windscreen. If your car glass has suffered any form of damage, contact a professional repair company. Working with a professional glass repair company will ensure that your car is restored in a safe and effective manner.
