There is one aspect of automobile safety, however, that most people give relatively little thought to, and yet is pivotal to the safety of a car - the windshield.
Windshields and the importance of protecting them
Many people do not realise that windshields of today are actually safety devices in themselves, designed to work in conjunction with the other restraining systems of the car. Airbag systems, for example, require the strength of a properly bonded windshield in order to function properly. If the airbag deployment causes the windshield to pop out, the airbag will not provide the intended protection for the passenger.
Nevertheless, windshield damage does occur. Common windshield damages include chips and cracks inflicted by flying road debris. The vulnerability of windshields is largely due to the composition of glass. Although it appears smooth, glass actually contains bumps and ruts invisible to the naked eye. As tiny debris flies through the air it becomes lodged in these microscopic flaws, resulting in windshield cracks.
Is there a solution?
ClearPlex - Invisible Windshield Protection Film
The product is the first and only optically clear protection film for vehicle windshields and is designed to take on whatever the road dishes out - leaving the glass in pristine condition.
Benefits of ClearPlex
ClearPlex also features UV stabilisers which help to reduce the amount of heat and glare, thus protecting the vehicle’s interior and its occupants against 99.9 percent of UV rays.
Installation of ClearPlex is also fuss-free. Fitted thermally to the curve of the windshield, ClearPlex forms a bond with the glass, thereby ensuring optical clarity and adhesiveness. The adhesive is strong enough that even high-powered car wash jets do not cause the film to be lifted from the windshield.
