Solutions for ‘Problem Glass’ in Buildings Before, During and After Installation
Moisture, Alkalinity and Dirt (MAD) can easily cause glass, exterior or interior, to become ‘Problem Glass’. Glass is all around us and, when new, it promises visibility, clarity and cleanliness. Unless glass is protected against MAD, it can easily break these promises before, during or after installation – with serious consequences for specifiers, fabricators, contractors, installers, building owners and occupants.

Just look at the difference Ritecoat R625 has made to the polycarbonate windows on this Highspeed 6 Ferry owned by Hellenic Seaways. In the ‘Before’ picture you can see how the windows have been corroded by sea water salt spray. The ‘After’ picture shows the glass has been restored to its original condition. Surfaces protected with Ritecoat R625 are easier to clean, resistant to staining and look like new for longer.
