The pictures above are our main windscreen repair tools.
Picture 1 is our windscreen repair kit. Picture 2 is the bridge we use for windscreen repair. Picture 3 is a Drystar it evaporates moisture from the stone chip. Picture 4 is a slide hammer we use this tool to open tight windscreen repairs. We always use a UV shield, UV light will cure the resin before the repair is finished.
The two pictures below are before and after windscreen repairs, if you look closely at the middle of the finished stone chip repair you can see the surface damage which is now resin. But there will always be some sort of mark left after the windscreen repair is complete.
There are two zones on a windscreen there is zone A and zone B. Zone A is the area directly in front of the drivers view it measures 290mm across, MOT rules say any windscreen repairs in zone A can be no bigger than 10mm across. Zone B is the area where the wipers sweep anywhere outside zone A, MOT rules say any stone chip in Zone B must be no bigger than 40mm across. Windscreens can fail for being scratched or cracked.
The video below is a video clip of the windscreen repair kit we use at Mr Chip.
These are the main towns and cities we cover, but we can get you cover anywhere in the UK
This is our windscreen repair curing lamp, the UV light cures the resin on the inside of the chip and the pit resin on top.
A classic Star break car windscreen repair. Star breaks are my favorite type of windscreen repairs to fix, sometimes the legs coming off are very tight.
This is a picture of the finnished Star break windscreen repair. As you can see all the legs are filled with resin but you can still see the pit area, that is normal.
Another example of a car windscreen repair. This is like a very small crack and they can be very tight to fill so we need to open the windscreen repair up with our slide hammer, the slide hamer is pictured above.
This is the finnished small crack, you can see the repair as diapperaed completly. A windscreen repair will always leave a small amount of scaring that is normal. Get them stone chips fixed quick.
