How Does 5 Star Auto Glass repair A Chipped or Cracked windshield near Altamonte Springs, FL? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected till you know how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main sorts of glass employed in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Federal motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up a lot 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 cent or a quarter. 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 5 Star Auto Glass 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. Each crop of 5 Star Auto Glass Altamonte Springs, FL glass is marginally different and every heap of resin is subtly different so a perfect match is rarely achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
