How Does ABC Auto Glass Fix A Chipped or Smashed Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed till you understand how a windshield is constructed. There are 2 main sorts of glass used in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windscreens be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inner layer of glass seldom breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a dime or 1 / 4. The break is actually an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outer layer of glass. The repairing procedure we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When ABC Auto Glass has utterly filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Each crop of glass is subtley different and each batch of resin is marginally different so a perfect match is never achieved but sometimes about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
