Previously made out of toughened glass, windscreens used to shatter into a thousand pieces on impact. Modern windscreens are made out of laminated glass. They consist of alternating layers of glass and polyvinyl butyral (PVB), which makes the material flexible and resistant to being pierced. In the event of an impact, the bonding between the layers remains intact.

PEUGEOT IS HERE TO HELP
As soon as damage occurs, it is recommended that you protect the damaged area using a piece of transparent tape of the same size. In this way, you will avoid dust and water rendering the repair very delicate, or even impossible. Once you have done this, book an appointment as quickly as possible at a PEUGEOT Service centre.
Don't delay in repairing your windscreen, as damage that is repaired quickly will mean you avoid a costly replacement. If the damage cannot be repaired, your PEUGEOT garage will recommend changing the windscreen. Whatever the problem with your windscreen, PEUGEOT Service will be able to advise you and offer suitable solutions. If you have a question about your excess, contact your PEUGEOT Service sales advisor.
