How Does ABC Auto Glass Fix A Chipped or Smashed Windscreen? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you understand how a windshield is created. There are two main kinds of glass used in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something small 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 seldom breaks. What you often see is a little round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or a quarter. The break is basically 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 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 subtley different and every crop of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but usually about eighty percent to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
