Did you know that windshield repair is actually a recent innovation? This became possible when windshields began to incorporate multiple layers of glass in one windshield. Tacoma residents, with our frequently unpredictable weather, were some of the first to benefit from windshield chip repair. Laminated glass in windshields dates back to the great depression era, however it wasn’t until the 1970s that the technology advanced sufficiently to allow more than a cosmetic windshield repair. The first company to create a repair system was 3M corporation. This was called the Scotch Weld and introduced in 1971.
Over the years since then, technology for windshield repair and rock chip damage correction has advanced substantially. At City Glass of Tacoma, we’ve been along for the entire ride!
