How Does Auto Glass Repair Mend A Chipped or Cracked Window? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you know how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main sorts of glass employed in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windscreens be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely breaks. What you often see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a cent or 1 / 4. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside layer of glass. The repairing procedure we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When Auto Glass Repair has totally filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Every heap of glass is subtley different and every batch of resin is marginally different so a perfect match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
