How we repair your windscreen O'Brien uses the Glass Medic® repair system --- the world's leading repair technology. The damaged area is vacuum injected with a specially formulated resin which, when cured with ultraviolet light, greatly enhances the strength and optical clarity of the screen. To ensure a high quality, virtually invisible repair it should be done at once --- before the damaged area is contaminated with dust and moisture. Repairs can be done in less than 30 minutes. What damage can be safely repaired? Repairs are made only when the damage is within the limits of the Australian/New Zealand Standard for Windscreen Repairs AS/NZS 2366. The Standard defines the driver's critical vision area and sets limits on the size and extent of the damage --- such as cracks and chips which can be safely repaired. O'Brien checks the damage against the Standard using a windscreen repair template and overlay to help accurately determine whether damage can be repaired.
