The windshield is a critical component of a car's safety system. As a safety device, its role is to stay in place and keep occupants inside the vehicle during impact. The windshield serves as the backboard for the inflating passenger side airbag. If a windshield is not installed properly, it can dislodge in a collision and separate from the base material (pinch weld). Windshield separation during an accident could result in an unbelted occupant being ejected from the vehicle and severely injured. It is hence very important that the windshield stays in place in case of a crash.

Innovation, coupled with the proven safety, reliability and ease of use of our products, make the Sika System the number one choice of auto-glass professionals. All Sika auto-glass adhesive systems have been crash tested and exceed rigorous Federal safety standards (FMVSS 212/208). Sika's reliability has been proven through millions of successful windshield replacements worldwide.
