Windshield Lingo - Different Types of Windshield Cracks
Did you know there are different types of cracks that form in your windshield?
By: Windshield Cracks Repair
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)
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.
