Replacement Glass a bit thin?

A number of AAIA members have raised the issue of replacement windscreens that appear to be lighter and thinner than the OEM glass they have removed.
This has been raised so often that the AAIA has decided to look into the issue.

The AAIA has available for loan to members’ micrometres that will allow members to accurately measure the thickness of the OEM glass and the replacement glass purchased.
If you have doubts about the replacement glass being of an equivalent standard to the OEM glass you are replacing (despite what the windscreen markings might indicate), contact the AAIA and we will send you a micrometre that will enable you to take accurate measurements of the OEM and the replacement glass.

What to do if you have doubts:
1. Request a micrometer from the AAIA
2. Measure the OEM glass at (4) points around the periphery of the glass (top, bottom, LHS, RHS).
3. Measure the replacement glass at (4) points around the periphery of the glass (top, bottom, LHS, RHS).
4. Take a photo of both the OEM and the replacement glass windscreen markings printed on the glass.
5. Send the photos and measurements to the AAIA.
