Your safety is our priority

Auto glass is more than just a screen to protect the driver from bugs, wind, weather, and debris. The windshield must also keep the driver and occupants from being thrown from the vehicle in the event of a collision. What's more, models rolling off the assembly line today depend more than ever upon glass to provide a significant part of the structural integrity of the vehicle.

Learn about it
Glass plays such an important role in a car or truck's design that professional auto glass installation has become a matter of life and death. Proper windshield installation is as important to your safety as seatbelts!

Care about it
Modern urethane adhesives are unique products. They are flexible enough to allow for vehicle body movement without being so rigid as to break the glass when driving on rough surfaces. They have incredible tensile and lap shear strength, yet are able to bond to different surfaces with equal strength. One unusual thing about urethane adhesive is the way it cures. It takes moisture from the air and uses it to cure the material to its strong, flexible, rubber-like consistency.

Ask about it
Occasionally, the humidity is very low. When it is very cold, for example, the air can hold very little moisture. Low humidity slows down the cure rate, so mobile service in the winter time can often lead to extended time before the vehicle is safe to drive again. There are some urethanes available which are chemically cured and do not rely as heavily on moisture.

Insist on it
The safe release of your vehicle is what we care about!

What's a person to do?

  • Insist only high performance adhesives and procedures be used for the installation of glass.
  • Follow the directions left by the technician completely.
  • If the weather is very cold and dry, arrange to have the vehicle moved into a warm building to speed the adhesive curing time.
  • Drive the vehicle only when the adhesive has adequately cured.
  • Always wear seatbelts and insist that your passengers do as well.
