How Does 5 Star Windshields Fix 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 employed in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed. motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs a lot of the impact and the inner layer of glass rarely 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 outer layer of glass. The repair process we employ involves injecting a ultra violet light curing resin into the air pockets of the fracture. When 5 Star Windshields has completely filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to cure the resin. Each batch of glass is subtley different and each batch of resin is subtly different so an ideal match isn't achieved but customarily about 80% to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
