Windshield Removal Cord

Windshield Removal Cord

Windshields play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and structural integrity of any vehicle. However, there are times when they need to be replaced – be it due to cracks, damages, or just a routine upgrade. This brings us to the crucial task of windshield removal, and the tools used for the job.

Traditionally, technicians resorted to cold knives and metal wires to cut the urethane bead that bonds the windshield to the frame of the automobile.  Even with the advent of specialized cut-out tools, the industry used piano wire as the tension member.  While they got the job done, they were not without their fair share of issues.

The Downside of Traditional Windshield Removal Methods

  1. Damaging to the Car Body: The cold knives, being hard and abrasive, pose a high risk of scratching the car's body, especially when the technician applied or had to cut at a tough angle.
  2. Compromising the Pinchweld: Metal wires such as piano wire, on the other hand, had the potential to damage the pinchweld – the part of the car body that holds the windshield in place. A damaged pinchweld not only means extra repair costs but can also compromise the proper seating of the new windshield.
  3. Safety Concerns for the Technician: Both metal wires and cold knives could recoil, leading to potential injuries. The constant tension on the wire made it prone to snap, posing a hazard for the removal technician.

Given these challenges, the industry needed a safer, more efficient alternative. Enter Rocket-Fibers’ braided UHMPE cord. 

The Benefits of UHMWPE Cords from Rocket-Fibers

  1. It’s All in the Fiber: UHMWPE fibers are inherently abrasion resistant with high strength and low stretch. Once braided into a continuous line or cord, the fibers work in unison to provide incredible strength at a great ratio to its weight. 
  1. Safety First: One of the inherent dangers of using tools like piano wire is the potential recoil if the wire breaks. With our UHMWPE cords, this risk is eliminated. Using our cord not only ensures technicians peace of mind, it is less aggravating with less breakages.
  1. Save and Limit Waste: Unlike metal wire, our line is reusable and can be used for multiple removals before breaking. Using our UHMWPE cords are more cost effective than piano wire and generate less waste.
  1. Performance You Can Count On: With Rocket-Fibers braided line, you don’t have to worry about scratches or cutting the pinch weld, which results in costly additional repairs and unnecessary headaches.
