Obviously, the solution is simple. Use multiple curing tabs, or strips of curing film to make sure every crack is completely covered. Run a little thin resin along the surface of filled cracks to help Curing Tabs stick and properly seal the surface of the crack. One drop every couple of inches is plenty if properly spread with an eye dropper or syringe.
The surface resin may cure in seconds. But, it is important to cure for a full 5 minutes. Ensuring the resin is cured all the way through. Remember, most windshield glass blocks a percentage of the UV rays that cure the resin. So reducing cure time may cause repair failure.
If the damage is wider or longer than the area covered by your UV light, be sure to move your light as many times as necessary to get a complete cure on every part of the break, curing for 5 minutes each time the light is moved. Long crack lights… Continue Reading
