Auto Windshield Installation

When installing a new windshield into a vehicle it is important that the installation is performed with all safety aspects in mind, because the windshield is one of the most important safety features of any vehicle there are many different companies who are qualified in this field of work who are able to supply and complete a windshield installation properly.

The windshield is not only a window in the vehicle it has many more important attributes. Improper installation, poor quality glass or the wrong adhesive could cause serious problems. The windshield positions the passenger side airbag. If your windshield becomes dislodged because if was improperly installed, the airbag cannot protect the passenger as it should. The windshield is also integral to the structural integrity of the roof.

Urethane, the black rubber-like substance you see around a windshield, is also part of the overall structure of your car. It must be strong enough to hold the windshield to the surrounding body. Its strength increases as the new urethane cures and reaches the adequate strength after several hours, depending on the product used.
