How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Smashed Windscreen? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are two main sorts of glass utilized in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Federal auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a tiny round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or a quarter. 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. Every heap of glass is subtley different and each batch of resin is subtly different so a perfect match isn't achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
