How Does Auto Glass Repair Fix A Chipped or Smashed Windshield? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you know how a windshield is assembled. There are two main sorts of glass utilized in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Fed car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windshields be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely breaks. What you customarily see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a penny or a quarter. The break is basically an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside layer of glass. The repair process we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When Auto Glass Repair has completely filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Every batch of glass is subtley different and every heap of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is never achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
