LONG CRACK WINDSHIELD REPAIR PHOTOS
A repaired windshield crack is barely visible because the refraction is removed by a clear chemical that is injected into the entire crack. The chemical also bonds the crack together and it is guaranteed not to spread any further.

If it does crack a windshield crack up to 18-inches long can be repaired for an additional cost.
We also replace windshields when they are not repairable with the only crack resistant windshield in the world. This clear coating called Edgeguard cures the built-in defect in windshields that causes them to edge crack and is responsible for 70-80% of windshield replacements. Windshield manufacturers and your insurance company make millions and billions of dollars from this built-in defect called the "weak spot". It is two inches wide around the entire perimeter. This area fractures 2.5 times easier than the rest of the windshield and cracks immediately to about 8-12 inches long. Aftermarket windshields are inferior windshields and that is what your insurance company puts in your vehicle. Aftermarket windshields are twice as prone to edge cracking than are Orignial Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) windshields, which is why you want to keep the OEM windshield as long as possible.
Edgeguard is the cure for the defects in windshields that causes them to crack. Over 9 out of 10 cracks repaired by long-crack technicians are edge cracks. Approximately 85% of windshield replacements are caused by an edge crack.
What is an Edge Crack? An edge crack is a crack that runs to the edge and starts from an impact in the edge area of the windshield. It almost always has an impact point in the black 'Frit' which is the black ceramic paint on the inside of the windshield. The impact will usually be a surface pit the size of a pin-head. The Frit is a built-in defect that causes edge cracks by creating heat and thermal stress. This area also has what is called the 'Weak Spot'. The Weak Spot is residual stress from the bending and cooling process. It is 1-2 inches wide around the entire perimeter and this area fractures 2.5 times easier than the rest of the windshield and cracks immediate to about 8-12 inches due to the installation stress. The fracture cracks to relieve the installation stress. The PVB bond to the glass stops the crack after about 8-12 inches.
Ultra Bond invented how this repair this crack in 1989 and invented how to prevent it in 1995.
Edgeguard is a spray-on coating can be applied to the windshield before or after installation. We currently mask- off the Frit area, prime it and spray on a clear coating. The coating absorbs and deflects the stones energy and prevents the fracture. It has been over 99% effective.
