YOU DON'T HAVE TO REPLACE YOUR SCRATCHED GLASS!
SuperGlass Windshield Repair is a Nationwide Chain,
and we specialize in glass and acrylic repair and restoration.
Before we restored this windshield, it was covered with deep scratches from both wipers.
WHAT WE DO
The most common scratches on a vehicle are wiper arcs on the windshield or back glass. These are caused by sand and debris trapped in the wiper blade while it is wiping the windshield. This damage appears as a white or frosty arc in the shape of the wiper arc.
SIDE TEMPERED GLASS
Scratches on the side tempered glass are usually caused by sand or debris in the seal around the window in the door. The scratches are usually vertical from the end up and down motion of the window opening and closing.
Other scratches may be caused by scraping ice with a metal object, vandalism
or contact with an abrasive object against the glass.
HARD WATER STAINS
Hard water, when left to dry on the glass, can leave behind mineral residue as the water evaporates. The buildup of mineral deposits eventually becomes visible and will inhibit safe driving vision. The hard water stains appear as white or opaque circles on the glass.
Many vehicles are washed with a soap and acid mixture to more effectively remove grime and debris. When the acid mixture is allowed to dry on the surface of the glass it will lightly etch the glass which interferes with the clarity of the glass. The acid staining appears to be dried soap suds on the glass that won't rinse off.
After a number of years, plastic dashboards emit vapors from the vinyl on to the inside of the windshield glass. After years of accumulation, the surface becomes very difficult to clean. The smear of the vinyl residue can make light appear diffused and inhibit safe driving vision.
The surface of glass is rough and uneven when viewed under a microscope. These irregularities trap dirt and other debris that adds up to inhibit clear viewing through the glass. The glass appears dingy and less than clear and sparkling.
STEP 1: MEASURE
The scratch depth is measured to determine the severity of the scratch and the expected outcome result. The scratch length is measured to determine the material use and the time of the job. Scratches are categorized in the following levels of severity:
The scratch is 1/1000" deep or less. The scratch will appear light white in color. It can be restored with no distortion and minimal abrasive steps.
The scratch is over 1/1000". The scratch appears distinctly white in color. It can be removed with multiple steps with minimal to no distortion in the glass.
The scratch is up to 3/1000" deep. The scratch is white in color and can be scalloped on the edges with glass missing along the scratch edge. It requires multiple abrasive and polish steps to remove the scratch and restore clarity. Slight distortion may occur from the repair.
The scratch is deeper than 3/1000" and visible distortion will occur by removing the glass to the bottom of the scratch.
