Ritec Marine Services (RMS) in the Netherlands – the specialists in the renovation, ‘non-stick’ protection and maintenance of marine glass – is proud to use the ClearShield Eco-System® to ensure the glass is treated prior to Discovery Princess’s maiden voyage in Spring 2022.
RMS staff are experts in renovating the glass during the ship’s construction stage. They first removed contaminants such as paint splatter, silicone, protective foil from the glass, then gave it a deep clean with specialist Ritec renovation products. With the glass now chemically cleaned, they then sealed it with award-winning durable Ritec ClearShield® ‘non-stick’ protection. This upgraded the glass to ClearShield Eco-Glass® which resists staining from harsh sea salts and other contaminants whilst in service. As a result, crew have a better view from the bridge (maximising visibility and therefore safety) and passengers enjoy unspoilt views from their cabins.
A massive 17,500m2 of exterior glass was treated by RMS on the Discovery Princess. She is the sixth Royal-class ship for Princess Cruises built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, all of which too have had glass upgraded to ClearShield Eco-Glass®.
