|Roshnak Surface Care Systems is Ritec International’s Marketing Partner for India. They fully understand that although glass is designed to look clean, it can be tough to keep clean. Fortunately, thanks to their many years of renovating and protecting glass surfaces, they have the perfect solution. |
So when Roshnak received a frantic call from a maintenance company responsible for governmental public buses in Gurgaon, Delhi, they were confident they could help.
The maintenance company seemed to be very distressed with severe marks on the glass windows on 40 buses. These marks accumulated over the lockdown period and although the most common methods and different products were tried, none could remove these tough stains.
Roshnak used Ritec’s specialist Renovation products to remove the stubborn staining from the glass in a relatively short time period. This restored the clarity and visibility which helps to promote a more comfortable and safe environment for passengers. Roshnak’s renovation expertise made all the glass look as good as new and reduced the stress of the glass maintenance company.
Ranauk Bhagwat, Roshnak’s Head of Business Development, commented: “Thanks to the Ritec’s renovation products and our training and experience, we have the confidence to restore glass surfaces back to their ‘as-new’ appearance. Our renovation procedure is the perfect alternative to glass replacement which is costly in both terms of time and money. Just imagine having to take buses out of service to replace the glass, and the financial costs involved. Our client was totally relieved that not only did we get rid of the staining they felt was impossible to remove quickly and efficiently, the solution was reasonably priced too”.

Deniz Mall, also known as Caspian Waterfront Mall or Baku Entertainment Centre, is a new mixed-use 120,000m² entertainment, retail, leisure and dining destination situated to the east of Azerbaijan. Designed by award-winning architects Chapman Taylor, a central ‘flame’ tower completes eight angled glass façades inspired by the eight-pointed star on Azerbaijan’s national emblem. Deniz Mall soft-opened in June earlier this year.
Pasha Construction was commissioned for the mall’s construction work. This was a natural choice given their landmark projects have made a significant contribution to the impressive transformation of the Baku cityscape in recent years.
When it came to the panoramic elevator system, Pasha Construction subcontracted the build to Sinerji Insaat (Synergy Construction), based in Turkey with a branch office in Baku. The elevator’s impressive façade consisted of 800m² of 8+8 mm tempered laminated glass.
For such a prestigious project, Sinerji wanted an easy-clean surface treatment on the façade to help keep the glass looking pristine for longer. Kozmos Cam, Ritec International’s Marketing Partner in Turkey, were invited to demonstrate the power of the Ritec ClearShield Eco-System® for the renovation, protection and maintenance of glass. This System upgrades any ordinary glass surface to ClearShield Eco-Glass® giving it numerous benefits. The surface is ‘non-stick’ so resists staining and discolouration. The glass typically halves the time and effort to clean, restoring it to a sparkling finish a lot quicker compared to ordinary glass. ClearShield Eco-Glass® is also found to reduce the frequency of cleaning, potentially saving maintenance costs. As an added benefit, treated glass has been independently proven to resist the adhesion and growth of bacteria, particularly important in today’s hygiene-conscious times.
Sinerji were impressed with all the benefits of ClearShield Eco-Glass® and so instructed Kozmos Cam to carry out the application. Both sides of the glass façade were treated, so Kozmos Cam upgraded a total of 1,600m² of ClearShield Eco-Glass® in their own Istanbul premises prior to the installation.
ClearShield Eco-Glass® helps to maintain a cleaner image and provide a more welcoming and comfortable environment for visitors to Deniz Mall. As the glass requires less maintenance, it saves time too, so everyone benefits!
Ritec specialise in providing glass renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance solutions with its award-winning ClearShield Eco-System®. Our On-site Team recently visited a house near Worthing in Sussex to carry out application of this System.
The house is situated on the coast with a beautiful view of Ferring Beach. There is a price to pay for this benefit however, and that the glass is susceptible to salt staining due to its proximity to the coast. This can easily etch the surface, permanently ruining its appearance. Thankfully, the homeowners had the foresight to get in touch with Ritec to have the glass renovated and protected with the ClearShield Eco-System®.
Our experienced on-site applicators first renovated the glass using specialist Ritec products to ensure any existing contamination is removed, leaving it chemically clean. The next stage was the application of ClearShield®, a unique surface treatment that bonds with the glass, becoming part of it which makes it highly durable. Once cured, the upgraded glass becomes ClearShield Eco-Glass®.
There are many benefits of ‘non-stick’, easy-clean ClearShield Eco-Glass®:
- Resists staining and discolouration
- Easier to clean and keep clean, using less time and effort compared to ordinary glass
- Frequency of cleaning is typically halved
- Looks pristine for longer
- Clarity is optimised so the homeowners can enjoy the view from the inside without worrying about salt staining ruining it
- Independently proven to resist the adhesion and growth of bacteria
The Ritec ClearShield Eco-System® is a cost-effective alternative to glass replacement and works for all kinds of glass, interior or exterior.
In total, 40m² of glass was treated, which included all rearward-facing glass – bi-folding doors, balcony and windows – and for good measure, the windows on the front of the house.
