Sandblasting can be used to create dramatic designs on glass, or just to transform its surface from transparent to opaque for privacy. However ordinary sandblasted glass easily and rapidly loses its visual appeal through staining, especially from fingermarks, if left unprotected. Maintenance becomes very difficult, if not impossible.
This is especially the case when used outdoors on a flat surface. This beautiful home in Fulham experienced it first hand. Just a few months after installation, in spite of a regular cleaning regime, stains started appearing and the glass rapidly looked dirty no matter how many times it was washed. It had completely lost its beautiful visual appeal.
The ClearShield® protection is the ideal solution as it resists fingermarks and staining and maintains the intended beautiful appearance of decorative glass. In addition, sandblasted glass resembles the more desirable satin look of acid-etched glass.
The award-winning durable ClearShield® protection on the surface of sandblasted glass:
- resists fingermarks and other staining
- is always easier to clean and keep clean
- maintains visual appearance and intended design
ClearShield® is part of a fully integrated system for the renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance of glass, also known as The ClearShield Eco-System™. Its unique renovation process effectively removes contaminants that have not yet etched the glass – both organic and inorganic – from its surface where regular cleaning is no longer effective. So when all else fails, renovation is the ideal solution for exterior and interior glass surfaces that have been heavily contaminated and stained.
ClearShield® is the only technology that provides a smooth and uniform finish on the surface of sandblasted glass. It can be applied retrospectively on-site to glass already installed, or in the factory to new glass. So when buying or specifying sandblasted glass, do not forget to ask for the ClearShield® protection.
