How Does Auto Glass Repair Fix A Chipped or Fractured Windscreen? Read On! It's tough to visualize 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 cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up a lot of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you customarily see is a little round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a penny or 1 / 4. The break is basically 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 crop of glass is subtley different and every batch of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is never achieved but usually about 80% to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
