The resin driver acts like a syringe plunger and is screwed into the Resin
Applicator Body. It is used as a piston to drive resin from the Resin
Applicator Body forcing the resin under pressure into cracks in the glass.
Note: the resin driver seals in the non threaded rubber seal in the lower
area of the Resin Applicator Body.
Glass Repair Resin|
These Resin Containers contain a low viscosity UV activated polymer resin.
The resin's curing process is activated by exposure to UV light from
the sun or UV lamp.
The Dropper is used to allow transfer of small measured amounts of the
Glass Repair Resin from the resin container to the resin chamber. The
clear narrow tip of the dropper allows you to see the resin and then insert the dropper's
narrow tip into the throat of the resin chamber before dispensing the resin.
Curing Film Strips|
Mylar Curing Film Strips are used to hold the resin in place. Due to the capillary
action between the windshield and the curing strip, the resin will lay
very flat and evenly distributed under the strip during the curing operations.
This prevents there being a bulge or lump of resin at the base of the
repair and an indention over the chip cavity. It also ensures the resin
cures in a thin layer on the glass surface which can easily be scraped
off the surrounding glass and smooth to the surface of the glass around
the chipped area.
Safty Razor Blade|
The Safety Razor's primary functions are to act as a squeegee to push
air bubbles out from under curing strips, and as a scraper to remove cured
resin from the surface of the windshield around the damaged area.
Safety Razor Holder|
You will find that a safety razor holder like this one is a big help when
using the safety razor for scraping operations.
It also allows the blade to be retracted for safety when not in use and
makes the blade much easier to keep up with.
