What Cold Weather Can Do to Your Windshield?
A critical part of a car’s safety system is the windshield. Despite car windshields being made of toughened glass, it is still susceptible to damage. For example, projectile objects, such as a small pebble or rock, can hit the windshield while the car is moving. If the windshield is hit with enough force, it can cause the glass to chip or crack.
Car owners need to pay special attention to their windshields during winter. There is a common misconception that cold weather, in itself, plays a factor in the formation of cracks in windshields. In reality, cold weather works as a catalyst that could make an existing chip or crack more severe.
Sometimes a car owner will drive around with tiny chips or cracks in their windshields for years without noticing them. A problem often occurs when a tiny amount of moisture seeps into chipped glass. When the temperature drops, this moisture freezes & expands and turns the chip into a small crack. When the car’s interior windshield begins to grow warm from the car’s heater, freezing temperatures on the outside can cause the crack to spread rapidly. A car owner may also cause chips and cracks in their windshield to worsen by doing the following things:
•Defrosting their car’s glass with hot water.
•Chopping or stabbing their windshield with an ice scraper while removing stubborn icy
Because car windshield glass has a very high density, any structural defects in the glass will cause these cracks to progress. If the car owner is involved in an accident, it can shatter the windshield completely and could injure everyone inside of the car.
