Glass Protection Products

Exterior architectural glass surfaces are particularly susceptible to damage. When left unprotected these sensitive surfaces can be quickly damaged as a result of exposure to a number of varying environmental conditions. The Glass Defender Series installs a high performance barrier between the glass surface and damaging environmental conditions.

The Glass Defender Series is a combination of products designed for the protection of architectural glass surfaces. The polymers in the Glass Defender Series are high performance hybrid silicone materials. These materials are partially inorganic, and will not easily break down due to UV degredation. Typical glass protective treatments, on the other hand, consist of organic polymers that quickly break down when exposed to UV degredation.

The polymers in our protective treatments cure, bonding to the glass surface, where they will remain almost indefinetally; unless physically or chemically abraded.

Once the glass surface is restored and protected, it should be routinely cleaned with copasetic maintenance products in order to ensure that the coatings are not damaged.

While the Glass Defender Series is extremely durable, and can withstand common window cleaning detergents, soaps and chemicals, not every cleaning material has been tested in order to confirm compatability with the protective treatment.

Before applying a protective treatment ensure glass is prepared in accordance with recommendations.

GLASS RESTORATION PRODUCTS

  • Glass ReSurfacer® Final Polish: Effectively removes stage 1 and 2 corrosion, surface scratches, oxidation, erosion channels, mineral deposits, calcium stains, lime stains, efflorescence, soap scum, acidic graffiti, oils, everyday grime and buildup, etching, acid burns, acid rain and other flaws from architectural glass surfaces; designed for use with a motorized polisher, random orbital sander or white, synthetic, non-abrasive pad to produce a scratch-free and highly reflective finish on a wide variety of glass surfaces
  • Glass ReSurfacer® Stripper: Acid-based material used to remove heavy mineral staining prior to the use of Glass ReSurfacer Final Polish; a liquid stripper that should be applied with a cloth applicator only when absolutely necessary 
  • EnviRestore® Glass Stain Remover: A restorative cream that removes stubborn stains from glass surfaces without the use of machinery; effectively removes stage 1 corrosion and many stains caused by soap scum, stone sealer overspray, caulking residue, mineral deposits, calcium stains, lime deposits, lime run, lime scale, oils, grease, oxidization, exhaust stains, GFRC leaching and more

GLASS PROTECTIVE TREATMENTS

  • Glass Defender® HD: High-performance, invisible coating that protects glass from damaging elements and prevents scratching for 10 years
  • Glass Defender® MD: High-performance, invisible coating that protects glass from damaging elements and prevents scratching for 5 years

The picture above shows a  glass restoration test area where 1 square foot of glass was restored. Half of the glass was protected with Glass Defender HD. If viewed carefully, the right side of the sample demonstrates the impressive beading results of our high performance hybrid silicone polymers.

In the picture below, notice how the protection is so hydrophobic that it creates a vertical damn on the glass surface that defies gravity.
