Windscreen repair is the environmentally friendly alternative to replacement and if you have fully comprehensive insurance you can usually get a stone chip repair done for FREE or from as little as £35.

The carbon footprint of a repair is much smaller than the one produced by the manufacture of the replacement windscreen and the recycling of the old one.

Windscreen Repairs are for the repair of laminated glass only.
You do not need to determine if the windscreen is laminated, if it is chipped or cracked it must be laminated,
the older toughened windscreen does not chip; it shatters into thousands of pieces.

The repair process works by injecting a liquid acrylic resin into the damaged glass.
The resin is cured by the use of long wave ultra violet light.

After curing the repair will:

Cosmetic improvement.
Repairs restore the optical or cosmetic appearance.
The size of the blemish left is a function of the severity of the initial damage.
Repairs are permanent and the vehicle can be washed or driven immediately after repair.
Heated windscreens can be repaired in exactly the same manner as ordinary windscreens.
Tinted windscreens or tinted top band areas can be repaired in the same manner as plain windscreens.
The "colour" is in the PVB interlayer not the glass. The glass picks up the colour from the interlayer, the repair resin will do exactly the same.
