How Does ABC Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Smashed Window? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired until you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are two main types of glass used in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed. car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up a lot of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you customarily see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a penny or 1 / 4. The break is essentially an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside layer of glass. The repair process we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When ABC Auto Glass Repair 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 batch of glass is marginally different and every batch of resin is subtly different so a perfect match is never achieved but sometimes about eighty percent to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
