Glass Mechanix Offers Power-Vac Injector

Glass Mechanix of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has available the Power-Vac Injector. According to the company, the Power-Vac System uses a powerful vacuum to eliminate the need for an air passage created by drilling. Then, the injector’s resin chamber fills the chip and, according to Glass Mechanix, allows even previously unrepairable windshields to be repaired. In addition, the Power-Vac Injector works on vertical glass, as well as on the inside of a windshield.

“We’re seeing that more and more consumers are learning about windshield repair and are choosing to take advantage of it,” said Ken Einiger, president. “Our business has grown substantially as a result.”

Two That Simplify Repairs from AEGIS
A vertical repair kit and a single shot resin, both from AEGIS Tools International of Madison, Wis., help simplify the windshield repair process.

The vertical kit, KIT1310, overcomes the difficulty of repairing glass on large trucks and buses that pose a challenge due to their design. This kit allows the use of full vacuum and pressure while set-up on vertical glass. The company says its design is extremely user-friendly and eliminates leaking problems that have been associated with other vertical chambers.

The single shot resin dispenser contains enough resin to repair stone damage. With enough resin to perform a repair in an easy-to-use disposable tube, needles and syringes are a thing of the past. The company says single shots virtually eliminate contamination and excess wasting of the product, and also allow you to easily inventory your resin stock. The product comes packaged with 25 units in an ultraviolet protective bag. In addition, AEGIS now offers all of its resins in new single shot packaging.
