How Does Auto Glass Repair Mend A Chipped or Fractured Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you know how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main sorts of glass used in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you often see is a tiny round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a dime or a quarter. The break is essentially an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outer 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 totally filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Each batch of glass is subtley different and each crop of resin is slightly different so an ideal match isn't achieved but customarily about eighty percent to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
