Making the Repair:

  1. Cure and Finish:
    • Move Windshield into Direct Sunlight:
      When the entire application process is complete, move the car, windshield, into direct sunlight or use an ultraviolet light.
    • Wait:
      Allow the repair to cure completely, 5 to 10 minutes, and then remove the curing strips.
      Before removing curing strip, check to see of the resin has hardened.
      If the repair resin is still wet under the strips, leave the strips in place until the repair resin is dry, hardened.
    • Scrape off Excess Resin:
      Scrape away the hardened excess resin with the razor blade.
      Hold the razor blade at a 90 degree angle to the windshield when scraping for best results.
      It is not necessary to be gentle when scraping.
      Scrape until the hardened resin comes off in white flakes.
      If a blemish is still remains at the impact point, apply a small drop of the repair resin directly to the chip.
      Cover the area with a curing strip and scrape over the top of the strip with the razor blade to force resin from the chip.
      This should leave the repair resin in the remaining blemish only.
      When this cures, carefully scrape hardened repair resin from all areas except the impact point.
