How Does 5 Star Auto Glass Repair A Chipped or Smashed Window? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected until you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are two main types of glass utilized in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside 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 often see is a little round circle or a star formed 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 repair 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. Every crop of glass is slightly different and each crop of resin is subtly different so an ideal match isn't achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
