Inspect areas for tinting or?performance coatings that may?be damaged or removed?during the resurfacing process.?Clean all glass, frames,?gaskets or caulking joints to?remove any dirt or sand that?will scratch the glass.?

Always test?all products and combinations?of products in a small,?inconspicuous area in direct?sunlight prior to use. The?application of this product is?optional. While it has?performance benefits, the risk?associated with using a?strongly acidic product must?be carefully considered.?

This?procedure should only be?attempted by a highly?experienced restoration?technician trained in chemical?handling. Before using this?product, carefully read the?MSDS, product precautions?and application instructions.?Be careful not to allow this?product to come in contact?with the body, clothing or?safety equipment. ?Safety?goggles and gloves must be?used while handling this acidic?product.


It is better to apply this product to a cool window in the shade than to a hot window in direct sunlight. High heat will cause the acid to become more concentrated due to evaporation. Product may burn hot glass. Use Glass ReSurfacer Final Polish to remove haze or burns.

Apply product to windows?using a clean window cleaning?brush. Use caution so that?product is not allowed to drip?or run down the window onto adjacent building materials. Apply?just enough product to keep?the surface of the glass moist.?Consistently agitate the?surface of the glass with a?lightly damp applicator brush.?Allow product to remain on the?glass until desired amount of?mineral staining is removed.?The product should remain in a?liquid state on the glass for at?least 5 minutes, but no more?than 30 minutes.

To remove product from the?glass, use a squeegee while?holding the window cleaning?brush under it to catch excess?material. Use rags to soak up?any excess product. Once the?product is removed, use a?water hose or window cleaning?process to thoroughly rinse all?surfaces that have been?exposed. Carefully rinse tools?when finished, and dispose of?any used rags.

The glass will now be ready for?the Glass ReSurfacer Final?Polish process, which is?necessary to produce a highly?reflective finish on the glass.

Case Study: Heavily stained?windows that require 4 man-hours?to restore using Glass?ReSurfacer Final Polish have?been documented to take less?than 1 man-hour when Glass?ReSurfacer Stripper was?applied first.
