How Does 5 Star Windshields Repair A Chipped or Cracked Window? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired until you know how a windshield is created. There are two main kinds of glass used in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you usually see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a penny or a quarter. The break is actually 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 5 Star Windshields has completely 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 every heap of resin is slightly different so an ideal match is never achieved but usually about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
