The Marina Bay Financial Centre in Singapore consists of three office towers, two residential towers and retail space at Marina Bay Link Mall.
Approximately 260,000m2 of glass was treated with Ritec ClearShield® ‘non-stick’ easy-clean surface treatment in 2013 for this major development prior to installation in order to protect the glass from harsh contaminants during construction.
Ordinarily, building contractors face the problem of concrete splatter, cement dust and slurry and other types of alkaline construction materials damaging and corroding the surface of glass on building sites. However, ClearShield® protection is the solution as it helps to reduce:
- remedial work and costly replacement for glass surface damage
- costs from unsatisfactory final builder’s clean or call-backs
- delayed certification on glazing handover
