Do I need to use a different type of resin in hot weather to do windshield repairs?
The short answer is no. For optimal windshield repairs, you need a resin with the best formulation of the following attributes: viscosity, elasticity, elongation, shrinkage, shore hardness, lap shear strength, tensile strength, and a refractive index that matches the glass. You also need a resin that’s appropriate for the weather conditions you are working in. Delta Kits’ MagniBond resin meets all the standards previously mentioned, and can be used to complete optimal windshield repairs in all types of weather conditions.
Flowering or Daisy Effect
What can cause delamination, commonly referred to as “flowering” or the “Daisy Effect?” The three factors are heat, pressure and aged glass. With a Delta Kits I-100 low-pressure injection system, you can control the pressure and flow of the resin into the break to help avoid flowering. Other injectors using air to force resin into the break are more likely to cause flowering because of the necessity to use higher pressure. If you use that type of system you may need to use a higher viscosity resin in hot weather. For this reason, Delta Kits offers resins of various viscosities to accommodate all windshield repair technicians. However, if you are using a Delta Kits windshield repair system, MagniBond resin is the only resin you need for all weather conditions and all types of windshield damage.
MagniBond resin has less acrylic acid than other resins, making it safer to work with, yet maintains the exceptional bonding strength and durability Delta Kits users have come to expect. Delta Kits has passed the BSI (British Standards Institute) requirements for repair strength, clarity, and durability, with flying colors.
