How Does 5 Star Windshields Fix A Chipped or Cracked Window? Read On! It's tough to visualize how a stone chip in a windshield can be corrected until you understand how a windshield is assembled. There are 2 main sorts of glass employed in cars today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are regarded as safety glass. Federal car safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) requires all windows be laminated. When something little like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass usually will break but the plastic middle layer absorbs much of the impact and the inside layer of glass seldom 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 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 utterly 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 marginally different and each batch of resin is marginally different so a perfect match is rarely achieved but sometimes about 80% to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will vanish.
