Pilkington Baltimore Maryland to Host Auto Glass Technician Training

Cars are changing fast. Like- lightening fast.

Two drivers of the crazy change are Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) and the  Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard.

Auto Glass Repair and Replacement pros should care about Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) since they're often found in and around the windshield. ADAS makes proper windshield replacement a critical factor.  

In order to comply with the federally mandated Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard  of 54.5 MPG by 2025, Original Equipment Manufacturers are Light weighting vehicles.  

For example, the 2015 Ford F-150 is now made with military grade aluminum. It's 700 pounds lighter.  Auto Glass technicians need to understand how to prime the aluminum pinchweld or they risk a failure.

As you can see, if you fail keep up to date with the proper auto glass installation process you may have problems.
