How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Cracked Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are two main sorts of glass utilized in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed. auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a cent 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 the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Each crop of glass is subtley different and each heap of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
