How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Cracked Windscreen? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are two main sorts of glass utilized in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Federal auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely breaks. What you often see is a tiny round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a penny 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 completely filled all 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 heap of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but usually about eighty percent to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
