How Does ABC Auto Glass Repair Mend A Chipped or Cracked Windscreen? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed till you know how a windshield is created. There are 2 main kinds of glass employed in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Federal motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely 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 actually 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 the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Every batch of glass is slightly different and every heap of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
