How Does ABC Auto Glass Repair A Chipped or Fractured Windscreen? 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 thought to be safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windscreens be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up a lot of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you customarily see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a penny or 1 / 4. The break is basically an air pocket between the plastic middle and the outside 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. Every batch of glass is subtley different and every crop of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is never achieved but usually about eighty percent to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
