How Does 5 Star Auto Glass Repair A Chipped or Fractured Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired until you understand how a windshield is created. There are two main sorts of glass utilized in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Federal auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windshields be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass seldom breaks. What you customarily see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a dime or a quarter. The break is basically an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside layer of glass. The repairing procedure 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 heal the resin. Every crop of glass is marginally different and each crop of resin is slightly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
