How Does 5 Star Windshields Fix A Chipped or Smashed Windscreen? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you know how a windshield is constructed. There are two main types of glass employed in automobiles today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as 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 usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs lots of the impact and the inside layer of glass barely breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent 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 5 Star Windshields has totally filled all of the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Every heap of glass is slightly different and each batch of resin is marginally different so an ideal match isn't achieved but sometimes about 80% to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
