CSI Spec Sheet

This product was initially designed to solve a common problem with vandals scratching or etching glass and mirrors in public and or private environments. Typically once the glass is scorn it has to be replaced to rid the glass of damage. Since glass is everywhere around us, it makes an unfortunate perfect canvas for vandals to tag and easily cause an epic amount of damage. The damage is traditionally etched with either screwdriver like tools, carbide tipped drill bits and now even acid is introduced into their arsenal. In the case of acid, we are finding that they mix white shoe polish and acid together and dispense it with a letter moistener found at any office supply store. This damage is effortless on the vandal’s part, but with minutes of scribing their tag on glass, the acid etches into the glass surface and burns the shoe polish into the etching making a highly visible form of vandalism which cannot be removed by any cleaning product.

The solution- Glass Shield. By preparing the glass surface, our film can be installed on new or un-vandalized glass. This film is thick enough to protect the glass substrate from potential mild to extensive damage. Once damaged by vandals in the form of scratching or carving, it can simply be removed by our technicians and replaced in moments giving your glass a new like appearance. In the case of acid, we have had our films exterior coating specially formulated to be acid resistant. This durable exterior Hard Coat won’t let acid penetrate on a vertical surface. If acid is dispensed, it will appear in the form of harmless droplets beading up on the film which can easily be wiped off with soap and water with no harm to the film, but otherwise would have damaged the glass.

Our Glass Shield utilizes a proprietary adhesive strictly designed to bond strong enough as to not be removed by the general public but easily removed by a trained technician without leaving any adhesive transfer on the glass surface. This construction makes for easy removal and replacement thus reducing the over time of installation with a net result of the most cost effective manner to approach maintenance for glass surfaces.
