Frequently asked questions
Generally, any type of glass can be processed. Only the presence of a coating on the glass should be avoided as it can be damaged by processing the glass. Also, an acidified (etched) or sandblasted side cannot be processed or can only be processed to a very limited extent.
Glass can be treated with the RevoGlas glass renovation system, by sanding out the damage and then polishing it in 2 steps.
In consultation with your insurance company, it is possible your insurer will reimburse the glass renovation. Certainly when replacement of glass seems to be the only solution, insurance companies are interested in an alternative to replacing glass.
It can deliver savings of costs of 25 to 95% and immediate time savings. In addition, the emission of CO2 is approximately 0.5 kg per kg of glass. Renovating is a very environmentally conscious alternative.
Yes, in most cases this damage can still be repaired invisibly with the RevoGlas system.
Yes, unless they are in the fringe zone. Then the glazing bead or the glass plate must be temporarily disassembled.
Yes, that is possible without any problems or restrictions.
Yes, this can be removed by following the steps of the RevoGlas system.
Yes, if there is enough space is possible.
Yes, the engraving can be completely removed from the glass and then repositioned.
Yes, this can be repaired invisibly at a fraction of the replacement cost. The RevoGlas system is a dry system, which means that there will be no or very limited nuisance for your customers.
Yes, this is one of the key points of the RevoGlas system to restore the damage invisibly.
Yes, in the vast majority of cases this can be removed invisibly.
Yes, it is also possible to get the glass completely clear again with the RevoGlas system. The cost is much lower than replacing the glass.
No, glass renovation is only possible if there is no breakage or star-shaped damage in the glass.
Only polishing is usually not sufficient to invisibly remove scratches. The combination of the advanced RevoGlas system components makes it possible to remove damage deeper into the glass. Of course without distortion afterwards.
No, because the RevoGlas is applied flat to the surface, there is no distortion. Of course, it should be applied by an experienced user.
Yes, an instruction is given with the systems. Full training with certificate is also possible.
No, filling with resin always remains visible because resin has a different refractive index than the glass itself.
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.
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.
Yes. A mirror is just a piece of flat glass with a reflective backing.
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.
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.
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.
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 happ
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.
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.
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.
