User Guide To Windscreens New & Repairs

A windscreen is the front window of a vehicle, in this case, cars. These are generally made of laminated safety glass which is a type of treated glass glued into the window frame. These protect the driver from wind, flying debris, and temperature extremes. A windscreen is required to stay in one piece even when broken as these are essential for safety of the car's passengers. Historically, the main force of innovation on windscreens is the need to prevent injury from sharp glass fragments.

New windscreens are available at any dealer or auto parts store in Australia. The prices of new windscreens can be very high and the installation might take a little time to accomplish.

On the other hand, the repair of car windscreens is a process that makes use of modern technology and a lot of skill to fill the damaged area with adhesive resin which then cured with ultraviolet light. When this is done, the restored part is almost as clear as it was before. A clean work area is very important to ensure a successful job.

Early windscreens were made of ordinary window glass that were easy to break and could lead to a lot of serious injuries in the event of a crash or accident. Several lawsuits have led to the development of stronger windscreens made of stronger materials. In 1919, Henry Ford used a new technology he found in France called glass laminating which makes windscreens significantly stronger and better. Ford eventually ordered the use of laminated glass on all of his vehicles. This technology has been improved today with the use of special techniques discovered over the years.

Several countries prohibit the use of heavily tinted windscreens for security purposes. The use of heavily tinted glass in vehicle windscreens has been restricted by laws in many places and has instead specified a maximum level of tint permitted. However, due to the discomfort and the distraction caused by the glare of the sun, some vehicles have noticeably darker tint in the uppermost part of the windscreen.

Today's windscreens are a tougher safety device just like seat belts and air bags as it protects the vehicle's occupants from debris and the wind.

The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association is the peak body that is concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing of all vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment and services.

What you need to know when your windscreen is damaged

When the windscreen is damaged, replacing it is an option. However, it will likely cost you a lot of money since windscreens do not come cheap. It will also take more time to replace the entire windscreen.
Repairing the windscreen of the car is a better option for you since it will take less than an hour to repair the damage. It will not cost as much as replacing the entire windscreen.

10% of landfills are glass in different forms. Repairing the windscreen will keep a large amount of glass from landfills
