It is summer repair time again, and that means dealing with those really
hot windshields. Remember, if a windshield is too hot to leave your hand on
comfortably, it is too hot to repair. In addition, we have infrared digital
thermometers available to give you the exact temperature of that windshield
Repairing a hot windshield increases your chances of damaging the laminate
or even making the damage worse. I have already taken some tech calls this
summer asking for advice on just what to do with those windshields that are
too hot to repair. Optimum temperature of a windshield should be 70-90
degrees. Keep in mind, while the outside temperature is 90 degrees, a
windshield in direct sunlight can be upwards of 120 degrees!
