Make It Easy
with Pinch-N-Go™
REHAU’s UniFit™ Pinch-N-Go universal moulding is manufactured with an elastomeric polymer for excellent cold flexibility and squeak resistance, according to the company. It is available in five sizes, and its “clothespin” hinge makes installation easy while grip ridges minimize primer “runs,” company officials say. Additional features include barbs for retention on glass, two nylon cords to reduce stretch and snapback during installation, and a lip position designed to accommodate body and glass deck variations. ❙❙➤ www.rehau.com

New UltraBond
Resin Stops the Rain The latest “rain resin” from Ultra- Bond is chemically formulated to resist contamination by water or moisture, according to its developer. This new windshield repair resin for stone-breaks retains its bond as the water and moisture is displaced during the repair process.

According to information from UltraBond, the water is displaced the same way the air is displaced—by vacuum and pressure; however, it resists condensation, according to the company. ❙❙➤ www.ultrabond.com

Takin’ It EZK-121
The latest version of the EZK-121 Double-Bridge windshield repair kit features Delta Kits’ new I-100 windshield repair injection system, which the company says completely eliminates the need for pumps, hoses and compressors.

The system contains a unique bridge that adjusts vertically and horizontally without removing it from the windshield, and utilizes a special vacuum cup to keep the injector affixed tightly to the glass—but allows complete movement of the injector.

According to the company, the system makes vertical and edge repairs easy without the use of adapters or additional equipment, and the double bridge windshield repair system repairs bullseyes, star breaks, cracks and combination breaks with ease.

The EZK-121 also comes with a new Mobile Battery System and 40-13 12-volt ultraviolet curing light. ❙❙➤ www.deltakits.com

Glazex System Does It All
The Glazex windshield repair system was designed to be simple to use and maintain, according to the Orem, Utah-based company. The system is equipped with a powerful piston injector, which has a firm seal by which the injector is held against the glass surface, according to the company. This allows the technician to exert enormous pressure on the resin and move it into the hairline cracks of any damage.

The tool also has three fingers, each of which is capable of placing the injector in corners and along any edge of the windshield. The Glazex system contains standard threads and will hold various injectors from other suppliers on the market.

In addition, the repair tool is fitted with an adapter fitting and quick disconnect attached to a hose assembly and the company’s metal vacuum/pressure pump, which is capable of pulling 25 to 30 inches of mercury and allows the operator to apply 16 pounds or more of air pressure. ❙❙➤ www.glazex.com

Up Your Velocity®
Equalizer says its new Velocity repair system is robust, user-friendly and flexible. The system contains a remotely operated combination vacuum and pressure pump that allows the user to alternate between vacuum and pressure cycles while inside the vehicle. In addition, the stainless steel injector features a “straight-through bore” that allows the user to remove the quick-release hose coupler and then press down directly on the break to aid the wicking process of the resin.

The company’s DynaPro® system also is available for those looking for a quality system at a reasonable price, company representatives say. The DynaPro stainless steel injector is a self-contained “pull/push” pressure and vacuum creating device, which allows the user to switch quickly between cycles, according to the company.

Both systems have a durable bridge that is easy to clean, while the pump action attachment cup keeps the assembly on the windshield, according to information from Equalizer. ❙❙➤ www.equalizer.com
