The Importance of High-Quality Windshield Adhesive
Windshields play an important role in vehicle safety. Incredible as it may sound, there are currently no regulations in place in Michigan concerning windshield replacement adhesives. Windshield replacement companies can decide for themselves which adhesives to use.
Make An Informed Decision
Before you have your windshield replaced, be sure to ask one simple question: Do you use a high-quality urethane adhesive? If you feel that the answer to your question is not satisfactory, find another company to install your new windshield.
Some auto glass replacement companies cut corners to save a few bucks, perhaps using a sealant instead of an adhesive or using a low-quality adhesive. A serious accident could result in injury or even death if the sealant or cheap adhesive fails to keep the windshield in place.
A reputable windshield replacement company will remove old adhesive, use a primer, and then use a high-quality urethane adhesive to secure the new windshield in place. A high-quality urethane adhesive will always require some cure time.
