How Does ABC Auto Glass Mend A Chipped or Smashed Windscreen? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are two main kinds of glass utilized in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a dime or a quarter. The break is essentially 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 has utterly 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 marginally different and every crop of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
