How Does 5 Star Windshields Mend A Chipped or Cracked Windscreen? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected until you understand how a windshield is created. There are two main sorts of glass used in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed. car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windshields be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom breaks. What you often see is a tiny round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a penny or a quarter. The break is basically 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 the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Each crop of glass is marginally different and each batch of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about eighty percent to 90% of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
