How Does Auto Glass Repair Mend A Chipped or Smashed Windscreen? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main kinds of glass used in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs a lot of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you customarily see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a dime or a quarter. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outer 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 marginally different and every batch of resin is subtly different so a perfect match isn't achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
