How Does 5 Star Windshields Fix A Chipped or Fractured Windshield? Read On! It's hard to imagine how a stone chip in a windshield can be repaired till you know how a windshield is created. There are 2 main sorts of glass used in autos today. Tempered glass and laminated glass. Both are considered safety glass. Fed. auto safety standard ( FMVSS205 ) needs all windows be laminated. When something small like a pebble hits the windshield the outside layer of glass customarily will break but the plastic middle layer soaks up lots of the impact and the inner layer of glass barely breaks. What you customarily see is a tiny round circle or a star shaped fracture about the size of a cent or 1 / 4. 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 totally filled all the air pockets of the fracture with the repair resin we apply an ultra violet light to heal the resin. Every heap of glass is slightly different and every heap of resin is subtly different so an ideal match is rarely achieved but usually about eighty percent to 90% of the visible or cosmetic damage will disappear.
