Cleaning Instructions For Glass and Polycarbonate
Glass and polycarbonate must be handled and cleaned properly during the installation process. Glass and polycarbonate products can be permanently damaged if improperly handled and cleaned. Standard Bent Glass Corp recommends strict compliance with the following procedures.
Uniformly apply a mild solution of soap and water or a non-abrasive commercial window washing solution to the surface using applicator methods. Remove all liquid from the surface with a soft flannel or cotton cloth immediately following the application of the cleaning solutions. Care should be taken to ensure that no metal, sand, or foreign particles become trapped between the cloth and the substrate. These particles, if allowed to contact the glass or polycarbonate surface, will mar and damage the glazing. All cleaning solutions should be dried from the window gaskets and sealants to avoid the potential for deterioration as a result of the cleaning process. Do not apply cleaners in direct sunlight or at elevated temperatures. Do not use razor blades or squeegees to clean hard to remove substances from specific glass and polycarbonate surfaces. Do not use abrasive or highly alkaline cleaners. Benzene, gasoline, acetone, MEK, and Carbon Tetrachloride should never be used on polycarbonate surfaces.
