How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Fractured Window? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired until you know how a windshield is assembled. There are 2 main kinds 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 windshields 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 much 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 cent or a quarter. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside 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 totally filled all 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 subtley different and each heap of resin is marginally different so a perfect match isn't achieved but sometimes about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
