When the Urethane Gets Tough …
Officials from Equalizer® Industries say the company’s Express® XRP is designed to cut through the toughest urethane. The tool is powered by a heavy-duty 18-volt motor and doesn’t require an electrical outlet or extension cords.

The Latest in the Extractor Line
The Extractor PROV28 Milwaukee from Crystal Glass is the newest option for those looking for rugged performance and strength, according to the company. With 40 to 50 percent more power than the 18-volt tool, company officials say the PROV28’s battery will run twice as long as its predecessor. The tool also is equipped with a battery fuel gauge so technicians can monitor the battery while out in the field.

Provide VIN Etching
to Customers
The patented INSTAetch professional glass-etching system is a digital, handheld VIN etch device specifically designed for mobile glass technicians. INSTAetch kits allow any installer to produce VIN security marks for the car’s owner or glass company logos and/or phone numbers for brand recognition, all while in the field.

The wireless system provides a permanent etch using a proprietary process that takes less than ten minutes, according to the company.

Glass Technology Offers BluWave™ UV Cure
Glass Technology now offers its Diamond BluWave™ high-intensity ultraviolet (UV) curing process, designed to ensure proper cross linking and cross hatching, according to the company—along with a strong, fast, cure. The Diamond BluWave incorporates the use of high-intensity LED UV technology to cure the resin while the windshield repair equipment is still on the glass. The company also offers its Diamond Clear Resin™ to be used with the system.

Be Prepared with Ultra Bond
The Ultra Bond windshield repair system prepares a tech for everything, according to the company. It includes an injector with a heating port to keep resin warm; a Star Flexor to flex the legs of a break; rain-resistant resin and a rain-resistant additive to make your resin resistant to moisture; X-Phobic Additive to remove Rain-X and any other contaminates in the break; and Xtra Bond Additive to etch the glass.

GlasWeld Provides Range of Kits
Bend, Ore.-based GlasWeld offers several different kits, which company officials say meet the needs of every technician level and budget, from its mini-kits to its professional-grade windshield repair kits. The company also has available its ProCure™ ultraviolet curing lamp, which officials say provide fast curing times. Each system includes online training from GlasWeld.
