Tech Tip: The Secrets of Curing Tabs, Strips and Tape

Curing tabscuring strips, and curing tape likely seem like an inconsequential part of the windshield repair process. Curing tabs and strips are Mylar film in different shapes, sizes and thicknesses. They hold the pit resin in place during the curing process. Right? The simple answer is yes, but there is more to these simple products than meets the eye.

A repair that is not covered completely during the curing process can fail as air may enter the break or the resin may run out. Because not all breaks are the same size, curing films come in various sizes so that all breaks can be covered efficiently. While curing tabs work great for small breaks (check out this video on their use), having multiple options allows you to pick the curing film that best fits the job. Whether that job is a long crack, a bull’s-eye, or a large combination break.

Curing strips are of the same material as curing tabs, only in a longer length. Both items are a good choice if you are managing multiple locations or technicians and inventory control is a concern. Being thicker and more rigid, both tabs and strips will lay flat against the glass. So, you are sure to get a good seal.

Curing tape has its advantages as well and comes in 50 or 100 foot rolls and can be torn or cut to the exact length needed. Being thinner than tabs or strips, tape is more flexible but also more difficult to lay perfectly flat. The advantage with curing tape is that you can customize the length to fit the job.

One feature that all Delta Kits curing tabs, tape and strips share is that they do not block the UV light needed to cure a repair. This may seem obvious, but it’s a point worth making for the following reason…. Continue Reading
