NEWARK, N.J. - June 24, 2019 - PRLog -- Did you know there are different types of cracks that form in your windshield?

When trying to determine whether or not you need a new windshield or simply a chip repair here are a few terms to familiarize yourself with...

Chip: Damage to glass caused by a rock (or other object) that causes a small piece of glass to come off the windshield.

Edge Crack: A crack that starts within 2″ of the edge of the windshield, or reaches the edge of the windshield.

Floater Crack: A crack that starts in the middle of the windshield (anywhere that is not within about 2″ of the edge of the windshield).

Impact Point: The location on the windshield where an object hit it that caused damage. Usually a small piece of glass chips off in this location.

Stress Crack: A crack that occurs without anything hitting the windshield, typically due to a large variation in the temperature (such as when the car is sitting in the sun, and then you use the air conditioning). It almost always starts at the edge of the windshield. Stress cracks will normally be a straight (or slightly bending) line, and will not have any sign of impact. A "pen test" is often used to determine if it is a stress crack — a ballpoint pen is run along the crack, and if it dips anywhere, it is not a stress crack. That is because with a stress crack, no glass actually comes off the windshield.

Resin: A clear material that is used to fill in cracks and breaks in a windshield.

Urethane: An adhesive material that is used to bond a windshield to the car.
