A One-Step Resin
Glass Magic Professional resin offers such a low viscosity that its penetrating power allows it to flow into chips and cracks with uncanny speed, the company says. The product is a “one-step” resin and does not require fi llers or polishers, yet sets crystal clear in minutes, either in direct sunlight or under an UV light. It does not yellow with age and is water soluble so it cleans up with little effort. The company also sells its own specially-designed kit with everything needed to work in a shop or in the field, as well as other accessories.

GlasWeld’s new ProVacZoom features Z-Mount technology that allows for a perfect seal instantly, according to the company. It’s easy to use with no external moving parts such as a cam lock or set screw. That means no guess work or rotational stress. Z-Mount technology eliminates the torque effect a threaded injector inherently creates. The ProVac technology maintains a full vacuum during the entire repair. It’s fully adaptable for all types and areas of the windshield, and includes a stainless steel injector backed by a lifetime warranty.
