How Does ABC Auto Glass Mend A Chipped or Fractured Window? Read On! It's tricky to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected until you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are 2 main types of glass employed in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Federal car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windshields be laminated. When something tiny like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs lots of the impact and the inside layer of glass rarely breaks. What you customarily see is a small round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or a quarter. The break is actually 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 ABC Auto Glass has completely filled all of the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Every crop of glass is slightly different and every batch of resin is slightly different so an ideal match isn't achieved but sometimes about 80% to ninety percent of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
Here's a technique to save a little bit of money with ABC Auto Glass and to maintain the seal around your windshield simultaneously.
