1/ Temperature can affect the efficiency
of the repair so the first thing we do is to check the
temperature of your windscreen.
2/ A mirror is then fixed to the interior of your windscreen,
directly beneath the chip, so that the damaged area
can be viewed whilst it's fixed.
3/ The damaged area must be completely clean and dry.
A special tool is used to remove any loose pieces of
glass and other debris.
4/ A gadget called a 'Piston' is placed over the chip.
When switched on this creates a vacuum that sucks all
of the air out of the chip in just a few minutes.
A clear resin liquid is then injected inside the piston.
Gradually the piston is turned, rather like a screw,
causing the resin to be forced into the chip; in effect
The piston is soon removed and a special film immediately
placed over the chip. This keeps the resin in place
until it dries.
5/ An ultra-violet lamp is placed over the top of the
repair to help the resin set hard.
6/ Everything is then removed and the windscreen is
polished clean. Your windscreen repair is now complete.
