Shortly after this (pictured) windscreen was hit by a stone, the car owner called his insurance company to arrange for the damage to be repaired. According to British Standards, Zone C (the wiper swept area on the passenger side of the vehicle, and where the damage in this example was)  permits damage of up to 25mm to be repaired. It is upon this trust that insurers are paying out for, often needless, replacement windscreens. Multi damage is a combination of a cracks and bullseye damage that is very hard to repair visually.
Corning Gorilla glass is a series of special toughened and scratch-resistant glass used on mostly high end mobile phones, tablets etc. Most car glasses for windows and windshields are specially heat treated and coated with protective films in such a way that they do not turn into fatal knife like pieces when it breaks down. Corning, which is  a renowned name in making specialized glasses for gadgets is soon going to announce special glasses for cars which will not only be stronger, safer, but also more resistant to scratches. Since it’s a new technology, so we will not see a massive roll out right from the beginning. Innovation is the way forward, we have come of age when it comes to technologies used on the inside and outside of the cars making them more efficient with time.

Referring to the insurance approved repairer’s notes,  there is no minimum or maximum size specified for this particular area (only an indication that the damage must be contained within a 30mm perimeter (from the edge of the whole windscreen). The guidelines are not clear; the emphasis (and urgency) appears to be placed on repairing chips. Windscreens which, whilst perfectly repairable, have been replaced after an assessment was made by somebody with whom they have placed trust and responsibility to make a fair, honest and professional judgment on their behalf. Rather, when a windshield wrecks completely, it is broken down into smaller chunks and spreads across so that there is least damage to occupants in the car. Corning Gorilla glass on cars will have smoother surface which will help in aerodynamics of the cars and will offer safer and more comfortable journey as it will also reduce the wind noise by virtue of its smoothness. Initially a few luxury car manufacturers may go in for this option, but gradually when it becomes more affordable and popular, we will see cars fitted with new technology glasses making them safer, quieter and more efficient. We will see more such innovations in the exteriors of the cars making them even more efficient with eco-friendly and more aero-dynamic designing making cars deliver more fuel mileage and pollute less.

However I must praise Autoglass (Bedford Branch) who sent us Dave to repair our old Toyota’s windscreen.
An appointment was agreed, and he was happy in the knowledge that, in the circumstances, he did all that he could to reduce the risk of any further damage which, could potentially have resulted in a new windscreen.
This appraisal places a responsibility on the repairer to make a fair judgment based on practicality of repair, safety implications (in terms of driver vision) as well as fiscal reasons (repairing a chip is a fraction of the cost of replacing). Closer inspection does show a second impact mark within close proximity of the initial damage.
Insurance companies appear to be accustomed to settling claims for windscreens which have been condemned.


How many windscreens are being (or have already been) replaced when they could have been repaired economically, and to an acceptable standard? These are specially manufactured and heat treated glasses for clearer and longer lasting displays, but does it have something in store for cars? If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Below are pictures of the two mirrors so that when making your appointment with Austin Windshields, you can correctly identify which type of mirror you have. This falls short (by comparison) of the 40mm limit set by the British Standards guidelines; the damage clearly falls well below both limits. The trend (according to one windscreen insurance claims handler) is that the price for one repair is the same for multiple repairs (on the same screen). Why does this practice of scaring policyholders into booking a repair, and then subsequently condemn the windscreen because of some unwritten rules exist?
Well the cars also have plenty of use of high quality glasses with slightly different needs like it needs to be really tough, but at the same time, if a car windshield breaks, it should not create sharp edges or large pieces which can be fatal in case of an accident. It has excellent resistance to abrasion, moisture, alkalis, acids, corrosion and varying weather conditions. The policyholder also commented that he felt a little pressured into agreeing to a new screen because of the advice he was given. Because other than the (separate) BS and MOT guidelines for windscreen repair, there is no industry practice. It is important to get the right mirror type because if we bring the wrong windshield, then we can't reattach your mirror. The combination of elastic backing and aggressive adhesive provides moisture-tight electrical and mechanical protection with minimum bulk. Only his confusion at why such small damage would render his windscreen a write-off prevented him from authorising a huge expense being invoiced to his insurance company.
