FAQ 1: I’ve tried other systems with limited success. What kind of guarantee do I have that RevoGlas actually works?

RevoGlas is an improved system based on the GlassRenu system we sold last 10 years, and can not be compared with any other commercial system on the market anywhere in the world. RevoGlas repairs scratches and acid damage, removes fabrication debris and hard water stains from all types of glass faster, cleaner and at a lower cost per repair without distortion! We have hughe experience throughout the world with glass repairs and have many references.

FAQ 2: Does RevoGlas work on tempered glass?

Yes. The only difference between tempered and traditional glass is that it has been heat treated for strength and safety (it breaks into small pieces). RevoGlas is used extensively on tempered glass in storefronts, home windows and doors and the results are the same as with traditional glass—clarity with no visible distortion.

FAQ 3: Does RevoGlas work on car windshields?

The RevoGlas Systems have been used successfully on many different types of windshields on a wide range of vehicles.

Make sure during the repair you follow the curvage of the glass.

FAQ 4: Does RevoGlas work on mirrors?

 Yes. A mirror is just a piece of flat glass with a reflective backing.

FAQ 5: How deep of a scratch can RevoGlas remove?

We have never received a report of a deep scratch our systems could not remove. Deep scratches are regularly removed with great no-distortion results, even damages with a glass cutter can be removed. In addition to deep scratches, RevoGlas has produced no-distortion results repairing chipped glass fragments. This type of deep damage can take more time to repair and as a result, users often bill their customers 50 percent of the glass replacement cost, overall savings that make the customer happy.

FAQ 6: Can RevoGlas handle large jobs?

Yes. We have a lot of examples of large jobs. With a lot of cost savings by using the RevoGlas system in stead of replacing.

FAQ 7: How does RevoGlas work on scratches from construction, like stucco damage?

After graffiti vandalism, stucco damage is one of the most common problems encountered by our users in the field. Homebuilders are ecstatic to spend a fraction of what they used to spend to replace damaged glass on a repair and
very happy with the no distortion results of the RevoGlas systems. The repairs are made onsite, without having to take the glass out.

FAQ 8: I am getting light (deep) swirl marks when grinding, what am I doing wrong?

Often, during the first few repairs, new RevoGlas (and also GlassRenu) users report producing light concentric circles or swirl marks and don’t know what they are doing wrong. There are two possibilities:

1. The surface of the RevoDisk is not completely flat against the glass during the grinding step. This will usually produce swirl marks that look like overlapping concentric arcs that have an opening on one side. The side of the
disk that lifted off during grinding is the side of the circle with the open arc.

2. The RevoDisk is being pressed against the glass with too much force. When this happens, the swirls are complete, overlapping circles. Easing up on the pressure applied to the disk should stop the swirls.

FAQ 9: Ok, so now I know what I did to put the swirls in, how do I get them out?

A swirl is just a circular scratch. Treat it the same as you would any other scratch you are removing. Just remember you only want to grind the glass until the scratch is gone - no more, no less.

FAQ 10: A swirl is just a circular scratch. Treat it the same as you would any other scratch you are removing. Just remember you only want to grind the glass until the scratch is gone - no more, no less?

Just as with swirls, there are two things that can cause or contribute to foggy shadows during the repair process:

1. Most common is that not enough time was spent with the Pre-Polish RevoDisk (Grey) and, as a result, all traces of grinding were not removed.

2. The glass required additional polishing. So how long is long enough when polishing? That depends on the glass and the size of the repair, but with practice you will soon figure out what it will take to get the glass just right.

A good practice to ensure clear results is to take a dry erase marker and, on the opposite side of the glass, circle and grid-off the area you were grinding. Next work on only one area of the grid until the glass is clear from all
angles. This will let you know how long you will need to polish each subsequent area and cut down on the starting and stopping.
