Did you know … lab tests alone cannot predict performance or durability in actual field conditions

Ritec’s ClearShield® durability guidelines are all based on more than 35 years of successful field experience.

‘Test organisations have reported that laboratory tests or combination of tests alone cannot predict the performance or durability of a GST under actual field conditions.’

NewsFlash … yet another great marine project deep cleaning & protecting 15,000m2 of glass on the Norwegian Joy

Ritec Services start this week yet another great marine project. Its team of experienced specialists is deep cleaning and protecting 15,000m2 of glass with Ritec’s award-winning ClearShield™ on the Norwegian Joy while it is being built in the Meyer Werft, Germany.


The contamination of glass surfaces starts long before the ship’s maiden voyage. The construction process is very aggressive to glass, in spite of protective films being used. Glue left over by those films, paint deposits, silicone sealants and deposits of mineral salts create a cocktail of contamination that all contribute to stained and dirty glass, and create higher costs for ship yards and cruise lines.

Ritec’s ClearShield Eco-System™ for the renovation, protection and maintenance of glass ensures all windscreens, balconies, cabin windows and all public areas are clean and transparent for the ship’s maiden voyage, and remain that way in the future.

Not only does the unique system increase passenger satisfaction and safety whilst reducing crew time and water used for glass cleaning, it also avoids the need for harsh and polluting cleaning agents for a greener environment.
