When your vehicle windscreen gets chipped or cracked, it does not pay to neglect or postpone getting a windshield repair done. There is a common misconception that a vehicle’s windshield is meant only for aesthetic purposes, but really, nothing could be more untrue! Most people don’t realize that your windshield is the most important safety component of your vehicle- it is the windshield that keeps the structural integrity of your vehicle intact, and prevents the roof from caving in during a rollover accident.
The glass used is specially treated toughened glass and designed to crack but never shatter on impact. Consisting of two thin layers of glass sandwiched by a bonding material, this laminated glass is very hardy and can safely withstand the impact of the airbags when deployed. Even if the windshield is hit, the two layers are held together by the interlayer, which is typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB). The PVB keeps the layers of glass secure and keeps the glass from shattering into jagged pieces….keeping the occupants safe within the vehicle in case of an accident. All these special features are designed keeping your safety in mind. If just the outer layer is cracked, it is possible to get a quick and efficient windshield repair done- but if the damage is greater, then sometimes a windshield replacement may be the safest option.
