M1 Windscreen Chip Repairs

Unit 2, 21-23 Ereton Dr, Arundel, QLD, 4214

The sound of a stone hitting your windscreen is enough to make most motorists cringe. After the initial shock wears off you find yourself doing a frantic survey of what damage has been done to the windscreen. It is no secret that finding the chip is a moment that no-one finds joyful. The most important step to take next is to contact us to make the first available appointment to have the chip filled. The sooner that we can get the chip filled the better result that we are able to provide you. If possible cover the chip with a clear stick (screen saver) that stops dirt and dust getting into the fine cracks. This allows the chip repair to be less noticeable when completed.

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.
