Why do you have to act so quickly to repair a chip ?
The chip on your windshield can crack faster in winter weather conditions.
The time between the day of the damage and the intervention for the repair is essential for the final visual result.
In fact, weather changes impact and weaken the structure of the glass, which expands and contracts in the face of these temperature changes.
How does a chip evolve into a crack ?
An impact is a small hole in the glass. If water gets in there and freezes, ice will form in the impact. This will then be clogged and the ice will put pressure on the glazing and thus cause the crack !
In addition, whether in sunny, rainy or cold weather, this hole will eventually fill with dust that settles on the windshield and this will also have the effect of plugging the micro cracks of the impact.
Consequences on chip repair
During our intervention, we can then only clean the surface impact hole. This hole being necessary for the injection of the repair resin in depth, if the micro cracks are blocked, the resin cannot spread correctly and allow a quality repair.
Also, humidity causes delamination of the layers of glass which always begins with the surface hole and after repair the delaminated area leaves a cloudy effect in the transparency of the glass.
For an optimal repair at Autoglas Luxembourg
To avoid these phenomena and benefit from an optimal repair of the chip, it is preferable to act from the first days of the impact and if this is not possible, it is imperative to protect the surface hole from the impact using a piece of adhesive tape or a patch provided for this purpose provided free of charge by Autoglas Luxembourg.
Apply the tablet to the flake, on the outside, to protect the impact from dirt while waiting for the repair.
