Over the years we have heard many things about glass polishing or repairing scratched glass, so we thought we would share of few of them with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

If a glazier tells you that scratched glass can be repaired, he is not going to sell you another piece of glass. We repair scratch damaged glass every day, providing our customers with invisable repairs, everytime.
If someone tells you that something cannot be done, it usually means that they cannot do it. Our members can remove any scratch from any piece of glass, including heavy graffiti scratches, acid etching and even weld or grind spatter.
Until a few years ago this was certainly true. The early Novus and Trizact systems required a very high skill level to achieve even half passable results. But with the development of modern glass polishing systems, mainly our own 🙂 distortion free, invisible repairs are all we produce and are all you should expect.
The process of glass polishing neither weakens or strengthes the glass. By removing the scratch, we remove the strain that the scratch has already placed on the glass, recreating a structurally sound piece of glass.
I love this one. If you have any doubts about this point, walk to your nearest window and bang your head against it. Fluid or solid?.
If only this were true. One of the most expensive consumables in polishing glass is Cerium Oxide polishing compound. Cerium Oxide is classed as a rare earth mineral which means that the cost will only go up. If we could replace this with toothpaste we could save a great deal of money.
Yes they can, by a skilled optician and not by a glass polisher or by someone using a D.I.Y Scratched Glass Repair Kit. Opticle glass is a carefully manufactured lense. Don't do it.
If you are going to attempt this, please be very careful. Most mobile phone screens are made from Gorilla Glass, which is not glass in the traditional sense, it is extremely thin, does not react well to heat or pressure and the inside of you mobile phone will not react very well to polishing compound or water. We do not advise that you try it.
No. When done properly glass polishing or scratched glass repair causes no distortion or hazing and restores glass to its original condition.
Yes. As tints are manufactured into the glass, glass polishing has no effect on the tint..
All types of glass can be repaired using glass polishing systems. Toughened, Plate, Tempered, Float, Laminated, Mirrored, Coloured, Curved, Smart and even Bullet proof glass can be repaired by a glass polisher. The only exception to this is glass that has been protected or coated with an applied film. This cannot be polished without removing the film.
By repairing scratched glass, we cut the demand for glass production, saving not only resources used in manufacturing the glass, but also in the mining, refining and transportation of its raw components and the glass itself. Glass polishing will not single handedly save the panet, but in an age in which we are all expected to do our bit for the environment, it helps, and that is all anyone can realistically be asked to do.
