Windshield Glass Repair Resin Glass Repair Resin

The Resin Container contains 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.
Windshield Repair Curing Film Strips Curing Film Strips

Mylar curing strips are used to hold the resin in place. Due to the capillary action between the windshield and the curing strip, 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.
Windshield Repair Safety Razor Blade Safty Razor

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.
Windshield Repair Safety Razor Holder Safty 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.
