Fast-Curing Windshield Urethane

A critical factor in windshield replacement is urethane quality.  Urethane is the substance, the binding agent, which adheres the windshield to the pinchweld.  If the urethane fails to hold, the windshield will loosen, quickly turning into a safety threat.  While there are many adhesives on the market, Gilbert Windshield Replacement prefers to use quality urethanes that are respected and time-tested.  Federal safety standards are met and exceeded.  Furthermore, automotive grade adhesives are generally known to have lengthy drive-away times.  Gilbert Windshield Replacement makes use of urethanes that are quick drying, yet strong holding, in an effort to minimize driving wait times.  Time constraints in daily life are recognized; therefore, working quickly and efficiently are priorities.


Nitrile Gloves

Technicians wear powder-free nitrile gloves during all installation processes.  Nitrile gloves are industry specific and industry standard as they help reduce the risk of contaminants.  Potential contaminants, such as oil, can cause adhesive separation.  Technicians are mandated to don nitrile gloves and are trained in-depth about the critical nature of bond adhesion.  Customers have no need to worry about sloppy work; the safety of each vehicle windshield is a priority.


Rust-Free Windshield Pinchweld

In addition to urethane quality, any and all rust detected on the automobile is removed prior to installation.  Any scratches are also treated.  Scratches are treated because they can turn into rust at the place of adhesion on the pinchweld causing the urethane seal to break down.  This deterioration can cause the car windshield to fall out on impact, such as a traffic collision, creating a significant safety concern for all who ride in the automobile.  Auto glass technicians at Gilbert Windshield Replacement are very knowledgeable about quality primers that are widely known to keep rust from forming on the pinchweld.
