How Does 5 Star Windshields Mend A Chipped or Smashed 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 constructed. There are 2 main types of glass utilized in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Fed auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windscreens be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass sometimes will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you usually see is a tiny round circle or a star formed 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 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. Each heap of glass is subtley different and every batch of resin is slightly different so a perfect match is never achieved but sometimes about 80% to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will vanish.
