SOMETIMES YOU DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR...
HOW WE
DO IT:
A BETTER WINDSHIELD COMPANY
THEY DON'T PRIME THE
PINCHWELD TO SAVE A
FEW DOLLARS PLUS
ADDITIONAL DRY TIME
(LOOK BELOW
)
THE RESULT IS
CORROSION!
(BELOW)
THE WINDSHIELD CAN POP OUT
IN A COLLISION BECAUSE
URETHANE WON'T ADHERE TO
RUST.  JEANNE FRANSWAY WAS
EJECTED AND KILLED WHEN HER
WINDSHIELD POPPED OUT
WE ALWAYS PRIME THE
PINCHWELD USING
FRESH, UNEXPIRED
PRIMERS
THEY DON'T PRIME
THE GLASS TO SAVE
A FEW DOLLARS  
PLUS 10 MINUTES TO
ALLOW PRIMERS TO
DRY
UNPRIMED GLASS WILL
NOT ALLOW MOST
URETHANE ADHESIVES TO
BOND CORRECTLY.  
NOTICE HOW THE
URETHANE EASILY PULLS
OFF THE GLASS (BELOW)
THE URETHANE WILL NOT
BOND AND WINDSHIELD
CAN POP OUT IN AN
ACCIDENT.  SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH CAN
OCCUR.  THIS AIR BAG
RIPPED THIS WINDSHIELD
COMPLETELY OUT (BELOW)
WE ALWAYS PRIME THE
GLASS AND LET IT DRY
LONG ENOUGH TO
MAKE SURE IT
ADHERES PROPERLY.
THEY DON'T TREAT
CORROSION
BECAUSE IT COSTS
TIME AND MONEY
LEFT UNTREATED
CORROSION WILL
DESTROY A
VEHICLE!
A CORRODED PINCHWELD
LEAVES NO PLACE FOR
URETHANE TO HOLD THE GLASS
IN!  CONSEQUENTLY THE
WINDSHIELD CAN POP OUT AND
AGAIN SERIOUS INJURY OR
DEATH CAN OCCUR.
AFTER REMOVING ALL CORROSION
WE TREAT THE BARE METAL USING
SRP SELF-ETCHING PRIMERS  AND
THEN WE ADD A COAT OF
PINCHWELD PRIMER (TREATED
PINCHWELD BELOW)
THEY USE A SEALANT CALLED
BUTYL BECAUSE IT'S CHEAP  
($5 COMPARED TO USING
URETHANE/ PRIMERS WHICH
CAN COST UP TO $30).  BUTYL
HAS THE CONSISTENCY OF
BUBBLE GUM.
BUTYL IS A SEALANT NOT AN
ADHESIVE SO YOUR
WINDSHIELD WILL POP OUT IN
A COLLISION ESPECIALLY IF
YOU HAVE PASSENGER AIR
BAGS!
WINDSHIELD
WILL POP OUT IN
A COLLISION!
WE NEVER COMPROMISE SAFETY
OVER A FEW DOLLARS.  WE NEVER
USE BUTYL.  WE USE URETHANE
INCLUDING ALL NECESSARY
PRIMERS (BELOW) JUST LIKE THE
FACTORY!
MOBILE
REPLACEMENT
COMPANIES OFTEN
DO JOBS ON COLD
OR RAINY DAYS.
MOST URETHANE SYSTEMS
REQUIRE THE TEMPERATURE
TO BE AL LEAST
40 DEGREES
SO IT ADHERES TO THE GLASS.
 
ALL URETHANES REQUIRE
THAT THE GLASS BE
COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE
APPLYING URETHANE!  THIS
URETHANE PULLS RIGHT OFF
THE GLASS!  JUST AS IT
WOULD IF IT WERE TOO COLD
OR WET!
THE URETHANE
WON'T HOLD AND
THE WINDSHIELD
WILL POP OUT IN
A COLLISION
WE ALWAYS PERFORM
OUR REPLACEMENTS
(ON COLD OR RAINY
DAYS) IN THE SHOP!  
THIS CONTROLS THE
TEMPERATURE AND
HUMIDITY NECESSARY
TO FULLY CURE THE
URETHANE
WHEN REMOVING GLASS SOME
COMPANIES USE AS WHAT'S
CALLED A 'PLUNGE CUT' WHICH
IS A NO-NO IN THE INDUSTRY.  
THEY DO THIS TO SAVE TIME &
MONEY.
SCRATCHES!
WHICH WILL
EVENTUALLY
LEAD TO
CORROSION!
AGAIN, THE URETHANE
CANNOT BOND TO
CORRODED METAL AND
CONSEQUENTLY THE
WINDSHIELD WILL POP OUT
IN A COLLISION!
WE ALWAYS ROUND THE TIP
OF OUR CUT OUT BLADES AND
NEVER 'PLUNGE CUT' TO SAVE
TIME!  NOTICE HOW NO
CONTACT IS MADE ON THE
METAL (BELOW)
THEY DON'T BOTHER TO CLEAN
THE GLASS VERY WELL. SAVES
THEM TIME.
THE URETHANE WILL NOT
ADHERE PROPERLY TO THE
GLASS!  
THE WINDSHIELD CAN POP
OUT IN A COLLISION!
WE SCRUB ALL OUR GLASS
SEVERAL TIMES TO REMOVE ALL
CONTAMINATION!  
THEY DON'T BOTHER TO BLOW
THE GLASS CLEANER OUT FROM
UNDERNEATH THE MOLDINGS.
ANOTHER TIME SAVER FOR
THEM.
THE GLASS CLEANER WILL RUN
OUT WHEN INSTALLING THE
GLASS AND AFFECT THE BOND
OF THE URETHANE.
THE WINDSHIELD CAN
POP OUT IN A COLLISION!
WE BLOW THE GLASS CLEANER OUT
WITH COMPRESSED AIR BEFORE
INSTALLING THE GLASS TO ENSURE
NO CLEANER COMES IN CONTACT
WITH THE URETHANE!
