Preventing and Treating Windshield and Auto Glass Corrosion
Corrosion is like cancer to your vehicle. It weakens the metal's strength and compromises your safety in a crash. Corrosion occurs when replacing a windshield or other bonded auto glass because of the potential of scratching the paint in places not visible after the installation is completed. If the bonded glass area is scratched, corrosion starts in these scratches and then spreads. For corrosion repair on your vehicle, choose Advantage Glass Inc in Lenoir, North Carolina. With our services, we go the extra mile to ensure complete repairs.
The Prevention of Corrosion
There are two ways to prevent the corrosion of your vehicle. First, the auto glass replacement technician must take time to minimize or even prevent scratching your vehicle in the first place. Secondly, should a scratch occur, the technician must take time to cover the scratch with a rust-inhibiting primer.
Both steps require the technician to care enough about his work to take the extra time and care to prevent corrosion and maintain the safety and value of your vehicle.
The Treatment of Corrosion
In some cases, once we begin your repair, we uncover a corrosion problem. This corrosion must be repaired. If left untreated, your new windshield will leak and will be unsafe in the event of an accident. To treat this, the corrosion must be removed with a grinder until good metal is exposed. Once the corrosion is gone, a metal-etching primer is used followed with a primer that allows the glass urethane to bond.
In cases of extreme corrosion, the vehicle must be taken to an auto body repair shop for treatment.
At Advantage Glass Inc, we not only use the highest quality products for your repairs, but also we take the extra time needed to ensure a quality repair.
