How Does 5 Star Auto Glass Fix A Chipped or Fractured 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 2 main kinds of glass utilized in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a penny or a quarter. The break is basically an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside 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 totally filled all of 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 heap of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
