How Does 5 Star Auto Glass Fix A Chipped or Cracked Window? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired until you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are two main kinds of glass utilized in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something tiny 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 inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a little round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a dime or 1 / 4. The break is essentially 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 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 crop of resin is slightly different so an ideal match isn't achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
