How to seal a crack in the windshield of a car
Damage to the windshield of the car is expressed by cracks, chips and even holes. Sometimes it happens because of the conditioner turned on in the heated car, as a result of temperature difference. But more often than other occur mechanical damage from hitting stones during the passage of oncoming cars. How to cope with this disaster and can it be done by hand?Today in the Chinese sites you can find ready-made kits to eliminate defects on the windows. Their quality does not always match the claimed, although they cost an order of magnitude cheaper and are sold in sets with tools. Branded polymers for auto glass cracks, such as Pit Filler, Long Crack or Delta Kits, give a better and longer lasting effect. The problem is in most cases solved, but it is necessary to correctly apply such a restoration.Let's take a look at what professionals advise on this.Carefully fill the crack from the polymer bottle as you move from screen printing to the stop and fix the crack.
Necessary funds and toolsMaterials:
- Specialized polymer of different viscosity;
- Set of translucent celluloid plates.
- Diamond drill conical drills;
- Scriber for marking holes;
- Scraper blade;
- Crack extender (suction pad on the rail);
- UV lamp.
Preparatory work before restorationBefore you begin to seal defects on glass, you need to diagnose them. The best solution would be to turn to a professional master for advice on whether to start this business at all or better to get a new windshield and not spend money on expensive polymers and tools. All factory brand windshields are made of triplex and are labeled with L or WL. Their main damages are as follows:
- One-sided cracks are just outside the glass;
- Bilateral cracks - on both sides of the glass;
- Radiation-shaped cracks - “star” or “gossamer”.A crack goes from one point to different sides or along a circle;
- Combined defects - a combination of several types of cracks, gouges, chips, etc.
Fill the crack on the windshield with your own handsThe defect, by the example of which we Today we consider the restoration of glass, refers to the combined and fairly common. In the lower right corner there is a point of impact, and as a result, a pothole like a horseshoe or a bull's eye. A one-sided crack leaves it. Before the main work, a set of measures was carried out to stop it at the extreme point. The hole was drilled with a drill, and it was filled with a special injector under pressure. The next sequence for pouring with polymer is the following: first the crack itself is filled, then the stopping point and then the impact point. Before work it is necessary to thoroughly wipe the pouring area with a clean rag dry. If necessary, use detergent.
