Summer Heat Makes Windshields More Fragile

Summer Heat Makes Windshields More Fragile

Overheated glass will break easier under normal conditions.

Orlando, FL, August 06, 2016 - (PR.com) - Glass is tougher than most people think. It has a tensile strength greater than steel and has been known to deflect bullets. However, when glass is overheated, above 95 degrees F, it becomes significantly more fragile.

When a windshield is excessively hot, small rocks will create bigger cracks on impact and any subsequent exposure to cool water can cause increased cracking and chipping. Rapid cooling from the air conditioner can also cause “thermal shock” which makes the glass further separate.

To prevent rapid temperature changes from ruining your windshield, follow these tips from SuperGlass Windshield Repair, a top-rated glass repair company:

“Start your air conditioner on low and cool it gradually to avoid a rapid temperature change that can cause breakage,” says company president David Casey.

“Also, whenever possible, park in the shade on hot days, avoid slamming the doors, and repair your windshield before it breaks,” he added. He also pointed out that there are many mobile companies that will come to you to repair stone damage and small cracks, and oftentimes, your insurance company will pay for it.
