Armored glass delamination Removal

We offer Nationawide onsite service!

The transparent armor (Glass)​ on armored vehicles is the primary line of defense against a threat, therefor it is important to address any issues with it. Having clear glass will ensure safety and mission success.

Fact: The transparent armor (glass) is more bullet resistant than the steel hull of most MRAP's

We can remove the delamination from your windows!  This requires a process we have developed over the last several years. With the use of special tooling and chemical treatments, we can remove the white clouding/delamination issues in ballistic glass.


We have removed the delamination from hundreds of windows with a 100% success rate! We have done over 500 windows over the last 7 or 8 years and have drastically refined our process to leave the glass perfectly clear (Some agencies attempt to remove the delamination on their own and scratch/damage the glass severely).


On Site Service at your location!

We have a fully outfitted service truck with a crane that we primarily used for working with armored glass on site, we come to you and do all the work at your location, although there is usually a few month wait for most, we recommend this option as the glass is heavy and fragile, let us do all the heavy lifting so you don't risk Tom, Dick, or Harry breaking a costly window!


 For Faster Service, Ship the glass to us for repair.

This process can be scheduled, and we will work with your logistics to allow for

a fast turnaround so your armor has the least down time possible.

We can usually have them repaired and on a truck back to you within 2-3 days of receiving the glass. Disclaimer: We have had damaged glass arrive in the past, so this option isn't preferable, and we strongly recommend insuring the shipping correctly.

Please contact us with photos of your affected glass as well as a photo of MRAP overall for identification and we will get back to you with a quote promptly.


"Outstanding work!

We can see out the windows!

I absolutely recommend SWATMOD.

(They are) very easy to work with, Nate and Brianna are awesome!!"

"SWATMOD's glass repair allows operators to see and operate safely.They were very easy to schedule and completed the work in a timely manner. Very easy to work with!" 

Tom Green County Sheriff's Office, San Angelo, Texas

"SWATMOD worked on our delaminated windows. I can see out the windshield now. Nate was very easy to work with and the work that him and his staff do is exceptional. (They are) always willing to answer questions and help work through any problems."

Lt. Jimmy Courtney

Hope Police Department (AR)

"SWATMOD arrived in the morning at my location with all the gear and tools needed for the repair. By the end of the day all four windows that were contracted to be serviced were completed and just as clear if not better than the OEM product. With our SWAT operations and high water rescue deployments, our MRAP is back in service and ready to be deployed. Whereas before the work the vehicle was being dead lined due to the driver having difficulty seeing through the cloudy delaminated glass. SWATMOD's customer service and communication were top notch, we communicated via text, e-mail and phone calls. All my questions were answered in a quick timeframe and thorough manner. When the scheduled repair day came around it was easy because all my questions had been answered and we were prepared. The work/product, customer service and contact were top notch. I could not ask for a better outcome of the interaction I had with this business."

Bullet Resistant Glass Explanation:

Bulletproof glass, ballistic glass, transparent armor, or bullet-resistant glass is a strong and optically transparent material that is particularly resistant to penetration by projectiles. Like any other material, it is not completely impenetrable. It is usually made from a combination of two or more types of glass, one hard and one soft. The softer layer makes the glass more elastic, so that it can flex instead of shatter. The index of refraction for all of the glasses used in the bulletproof layers must be almost the same to keep the glass transparent and allow a clear, undistorted view through the glass. Bulletproof glass varies in thickness from 3⁄4 to 3+1⁄2 inches (19 to 89 mm).

Bulletproof glass is used in windows of buildings that require such security, such as jewelry stores and embassies, and of military and private vehicles.

Bullet-resistant glass is constructed using layers of laminated glass. The more layers there are, the more protection the glass offers. When a weight reduction is needed, polycarbonate (a thermoplastic) is laminated onto the safe side to stop spall. The aim is to make a material with the appearance and clarity of standard glass but with effective protection from small arms. Polycarbonate designs usually consist of products such as Armormax, Makroclear, Cyrolon: a soft coating that heals after being scratched (such as elastomeric carbon-based polymers) or a hard coating that prevents scratching (such as silicon-based polymers).

The plastic in laminate designs also provides resistance to impact from physical assault from blunt and sharp objects. The plastic provides little in the way of bullet-resistance. The glass, which is much harder than plastic, flattens the bullet, and the plastic deforms, with the aim of absorbing the rest of the energy and preventing penetration. The ability of the polycarbonate layer to stop projectiles with varying energy is directly proportional to its thickness, and bulletproof glass of this design may be up to 3.5 inches thick.

Laminated glass layers are built from glass sheets bonded together with polyvinyl butyral, polyurethane, Sentryglas, or ethylene-vinyl acetate. When treated with chemical processes, the glass becomes much stronger. This design has been in regular use on combat vehicles since World War II. It is typically thick and is usually extremely heavy.

Environmental effects:

The properties of bullet-resistant glass can be affected by temperature and by exposure to solvents or UV radiation, usually from sunlight. If the polycarbonate layer is below a glass layer, it has some protection from UV radiation due to the glass and bonding layer. Over time the polycarbonate becomes more brittle because it is an amorphous polymer (which is necessary for it to be transparent) that moves toward thermodynamic equilibrium.

An impact on polycarbonate by a projectile at temperatures below −7 °C sometimes creates spall, pieces of polycarbonate that are broken off and become projectiles themselves. Experiments have demonstrated that the size of the spall is related to the thickness of the laminate rather than the size of the projectile. The spall starts in surface flaws caused by bending of the inner, polycarbonate layer and the cracks move “backwards” through to the impact surface. It has been suggested that a second inner layer of polycarbonate may effectively resist penetration by the spall.



Glass Cleaning Instructions


Rinse sheet with lukewarm water, gently wipe with mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water using a soft cloth or sponge.



Or use brushes or squeegees. Rinse again. Dry with soft cloth or moist cellulose sponge to prevent water spotting.

To remove wet paint, glazing compound or grease, rub lightly with a good grade of VM & P naphtha or isopropyl then wash and rinse.





Abusive cleaning procedures by hand washing or automated washing equipment will result in visual hazing, loss of light transmission and coating deterioration.
