How Does ABC Auto Glass Repair Repair A Chipped or Smashed Window? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed till you know how a windshield is assembled. There are 2 main kinds of glass employed in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windscreens be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you often see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or 1 / 4. The break is actually 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 ABC Auto Glass Repair 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 batch of resin is slightly different so an ideal match is never achieved but usually about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
