Yes it is. A clamp down on windscreen damage and general vehicle defects has recently been enforced, especially in QLD were annual road worthy certificates are not required. Penalties of $121 and 1 point apply.
We inject a specially formulated windscreen resin into the chip. Once the chip has been injected with resin, we cure it with UV light. After this, the windscreen will be restored back to full strength and the chip will no longer be vulnerable to spreading.
Its important to note that the windscreen chip will still be slightly visible after the repair. This is because the chip is actually still there, just less visible due to the resin injection.
An 80% reduction of the chip visibility is a typical result, however, this can vary. Over time (years) the chip may discolour if stored out doors in harsh sunlight. Service 8® uses the best quality resin to reduce this ageing effect.
Generally speaking we can repair windscreen chips/cracks up to the size of a 50c coin. Larger repairs may be performed, however, when repairing larger chips the clarity and quality is compromised. With this in mind, Service 8® limits its chip repairs to this size.
The size of the repair that can be performed will ultimately depend of what kind damage and where on the windscreen it is. See below to see actual standards, for road worthy purposes.
Service 8® is very competitive and prices start from $79.00, this includes local mobile service. Substantial discounts can be arranged for multiple chips at the same location. So, gather your friends/family together at home/work and save.
It’s important to park the vehicle in shade if possible. If left in direct sunlight the windscreen can heat up and soften. This may cause the chip to crack and spread.
Avoid sudden temperature changes of the windscreen. For example, don’t blow Air Conditioning directly onto a hot windscreen.
Keep the chip dry if possible. You can place clear sticky tape on the outside of the chip. The tape will not prevent cracking, but it will keep the chip free from contamination and improve the chances of a better quality/clearer repair.
