How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Cracked Windscreen? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected till you know how a windshield is created. There are two main kinds of glass utilized in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you usually see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a penny or 1 / 4. The break is essentially 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 totally filled all of the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Every batch of glass is slightly different and every batch of resin is slightly different so a perfect match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
