Most windshields purchasable today are Department of Transportation (DOT) approved and no reputable glass company would consider purchasing anything less. However, this is not always the case for urethane adhesive which is equally important in your safety.
Windshield Surgeons Auto Glass uses a quick curing, oven heated, urethane adhesive that has approximately 550lbs per square inch of tensile strength – a single square inch is enough to hold over 2 full size adults! Our urethane is exclusively Sika brand, which is the only brand accepted by the Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standard (AGRSS) council as safe and reliable. It is deemed the only product that balances bonding quality and safe curing time acceptable by AGRSS. All too frequently, other companies will use inferior adhesive and just let you drive away ignorant to the danger or they will tell you they need 3-4 hours for safety. If you aren’t sure if you believe this, ask what urethane they use and how long it takes to safely cure. Modern premium Sika products allow for a safe drive away time between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Windshield replacement time has fallen drastically with improved technology.
To simplify, this means that when you have your vehicle served by Windshield Surgeons, you can have the confidence that you will not only receive the highest quality install possible but also with the highest quality of products available. This lets you drive away safely and fast – quality and convenience.
Watch urethane adhesive curing time evolve over the years from 4 hours to as low as 30 minutes.
We at Windshield Surgeons Auto Glass believe that no windshield can honorably be installed without urethane that holds to these high standards and allows for a quick safe drive away time. This allows us to serve you better with one-hour appointments while still maintaining safe, quality work.
