How Does ABC Auto Glass Mend A Chipped or Cracked Window? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you know how a windshield is created. There are two main types of glass utilized in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are thought to be safety glass. Fed. auto 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 inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a tiny 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 heap of glass is subtley different and every batch of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but usually about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
