How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Smashed Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected until you know how a windshield is created. There are 2 main kinds of glass employed in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you often see is a tiny round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a dime or 1 / 4. The break is essentially 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 completely filled all of the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Every crop of glass is marginally different and each crop of resin is marginally different so a perfect match is never achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
