Windscreen Repair Resin
We apply industry leading resin systems featuring high level mechanical, adhesive, strength and environmental resistance properties. In our harsh climate it’s highly important the resin used is of the best quality, and suitability for your particular type and depth of damage. An unsuitable product with a low grade ‘toughness’ is susceptible to becoming brittle and cracking, costing you more in the long run. When the correct products are used and applied by a NOVUS professional, your windscreen will look as good as new.
Cure windscreen resin
Our qualified technicians expertly inject the resin into the problem chip or crack on your windscreen, then we begin to cure the resin. UV light is applied to speed the curing process, and efficiently harden the resin. As tough as windscreen glass. The length of time the curing process takes depends on the extent of the damage, and can be anywhere from 5 to 40 minutes. You’ll be given a time estimate upon assessment of the problem.
Polish windscreen repair
When curing is complete, we polish the area to return up to 95% of the optical clarity to the once-damaged glass. The level of clarity we can achieve is determined by factors such as the damage severity, any possible contamination to the area, and the age of the chip or crack. In the majority of cases the repair spot will look like a small watermark.
Your windscreens structural integrity has returned, you’re back on the road safely in the fastest, and cheapest way possible, and you’ve prevented the problem from worsening, and becoming a costly replacement job in the future.
