How Does 5 Star Windshields Mend A Chipped or Fractured Windshield? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be fixed until you know how a windshield is assembled. There are two main kinds of glass employed in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed motor vehicle safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windscreens be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outer layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up much of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you customarily see is a small round circle or a star formed fracture about the size of a cent or a quarter. The break is basically 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 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 marginally different and every heap of resin is marginally different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but customarily about 80% to ninety percent of the visual or cosmetic damage will disappear.
