As mentioned earlier, not all car windscreen can be repaired. As a rule of thumb if the crack is larger than 3 cm you will need to have your car windscreen glass replaced. If the window chip or crack is smaller than 3cm then the damaged car window can be repaired, this is done with a special resin injection and the process follows like this:
1. Dirt, moisture, and splinters are removed from the chip or crack.
2. If the crack is clean and dry, special synthetic resin will be injected into the star.
3. A special vacuum pump is then used by the repairer to ensure that the injected resin spreads well.
4. The synthetic resin is then dried using a special UV lamp.
5. The processed piece of glass is then polished to make the glass clear again.
