How Does Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Fractured Window? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed till you know how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main sorts of glass used in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed. auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a dime or 1 / 4. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outer layer of glass. The repairing procedure we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When Auto Glass Repair has utterly filled all of the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Every batch of glass is slightly different and each batch of resin is marginally different so an ideal match isn't achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
