Five-Step Windshield Removal with Induction Heat

Five-Step Windshield Removal with Induction Heat

The Glass Blaster is a unique, time-saving approach for removing automotive glass without the need for wires, knives or other traditional tools.

Induction Innovations’ Inductor Glass Blaster can make the tough job of removing an automotive windshield a lot easier – and more profitable. The Glass Blaster is a unique, time-saving approach for removing automotive glass without the need for wires, knives or other traditional tools. Imagine removing automotive glass without cutting the encapsulant, scratching the frit, and with little to no need to pull the interior. Guide pins are kept intact for ease of re-installation since they weren’t cut. A non-metallic tape wrapping protects the glass as the Glass Blaster quickly and cleanly heats and unseals the bond, allowing the glass to be removed from the outside, without touching the interior trim, and without the muscle power usually required. From locating the urethane bead to lifting the glass out, the entire process takes less than 15 minutes. 

The Glass Blaster releases urethane in hard-to-reach areas such as curves and deep pockets, where other glass tools can’t go. Back glass and windshields can be removed in as little as 10 to 15 minutes, and quarter glass in as little as three minutes. The Glass Blaster:

  • Eliminates downtime waiting for subcontractors
  • Reduces/eliminates need for consumables
  • Salvage glass normally discarded in the repair process
  • Reduces overall labor time
  • Can also remove bonded panels to metal and sprayed-on bedliners

The Glass Blaster can be bought as an independent kit or included as an accessory with either the Inductor Series Pro-Max and Max models. You can purchase the product through your local tool distributor. For a list of resellers, visit www.theinductor.com.
