All glass scratch repair system are not created equal when you are looking for the right solution to meet your needs. Be sure to consider the type of scratching and the severity of the damage that you are looking to repair prior to investing in a product. The time of repair and the exposure to harmful products is also a very important part of what solution will be best suited for on-going repairs.
Your health health and exposure is something is the most important factor. Any dry-sanding process which introduces glass particulates into the air can cause eye and respiratory complications requiring technicians to wear eye protection and industrialized respirator equipment. OSHA regulations standards state that dry, airborne particulates can be hazardous and require the necessary protection.
FOR ANYONE CHOOSING TO USE THIS EQUIPMENT: PLEASE REFERENCE OSHA REGULATIONS FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY (1910.1000/132). ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE EVALUATED FOR THE SAFETY OF PEOPLE THAT ARE IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE REPAIR AREA. YOUR COMPANY, YOUR LIABILITY, YOUR HEALTH
Any system that utilizes a dry-sanding process will also cause the glass to retain more heat. This causes annealed and tempered glass to crack and shatter very easily. Because these systems are a dry process it requires the technician to stop frequently to allow the glass the cool before repairing can resume. The down time means longer repair times.
Dont be fulled by inflated claims about the repair efficiencies of certain products. The average repair using Glass Technology Scratch Hog system is approxiamtely 3-5 minutes per 6 inches of linear damage. This patented Micro-Replication process is the most efficient process available. Glass Technology's system is tested to support our claims.
Dont limit yourself to repairing only light surface scratching which is the primary result of using a system that only uses a polishing compound. Be sure to check the abrasive levels that are being used before you order a system. The material or compounds do not exceed 5 microns you will be limiting your potential for repair dramatically. Glass Technology uses abrasive technology that ranges from 1-35 microns for fast effective repairs in a fraction of the time.
Make sure that the system you use can repair any time of glass surface including annealed, tempered, heat treated, and impact resistant glass surfaces. Also check to make the the repair can be done any part of the glass including curved surfaces, edges, and corners. Glass Technology's system will work on any type of glass surface and in any hard to reach location.
