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 repaired until you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are 2 main kinds of glass employed in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Federal car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs a lot of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a tiny round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a cent or 1 / 4. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outer layer of glass. The mending 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 heap of glass is subtley different and every crop of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is never achieved but customarily about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
