Windscreen repair technical Details


All automotive glass supplied by Allglass / Autoglass® carries the E2 stamp and is per manufacturer’s standard. Materials used during installation are in accordance with O.E. Specifications.


Since the direct glaze method was introduced as a technique for bonding glass in cars, the glass has become a structural part of the car body contributing to the torsional stiffness and thereby improving road holding.

The latest generation of bonding materials are called ‘High Modulus’, which increases resistance to body distortion and flexing, and has such great torsional rigidity, that designers of modern cars have reduced some of the metal that was need for strengthening around the windscreen area. This means that cars which have their windscreens bonded with High Modulus bonding are lighter and stronger.

Allglass / Autoglass® windscreens use the highest quality bonding materials which includes High modulus where appropriate. To review further technical information visit these supplier sites.


It is not always necessary to replace a damaged windscreen. Allglass / Autoglass® offers a windscreen repair service using the ‘Esprit Windscreen Repair’ system, which is recognised as a world leader.
