How do the SRP Glass Restoration Systems work?
The patented SRP Glass Restoration Systems are engineered using a vacuum system to hold the Polisher and Finer Units on the glass. The Vacuum also provides a continuous flow of slurry through the system which provides a constant supply of fresh abrasives and cools the glass allowing polishing speeds of 6,000 rpm’s.
What is a “Slurry” and What is it Made of?
Our slurry is composed of rare earth elements that are mixed with water to from an abrasive polishing solution. The slurry is completely non-hazardous and environmentally friendly for safe, easy disposal.
Do I Need a Polisher and A Finer System?
If you are only servicing light scratches (ones that be felt with a fingernail, but do not have shards or flakes of glass missing), the SRP Polisher should remove your scratches. If you are facing deeper scratches (such as those created by Carbide Scribes or Graffiti Marks) you will need both the more aggressive Finer to grind away the scratch, and the Polisher to restore clarity to the Fined Glass.
Will It work on Tempered Glass?
The SRP Systems will work on all types of glass – Plate, Tempered, Mirrored, Tinted, Laminated, and Curved. Only, the degree of the curvature and the experience of the operator will limit the ability of the system to function on Curved Glass.
Can It Remove Mineral Deposits and Stains from Glass?
Using the Flat or Solid Pad, the Polisher will remove most deposits and stains from glass with ease.
How Close to the Edge Can I Polish?
With the standard shroud, you can typically polish to within 1” – 1 ½” inches of the edge of a piece of glass. Using the optional Edge Shroud, this distance is reduced to approximately ½” which can be easily removed using the Edge Finishing System.
Does the Scratch Removal Process Weaken the Glass?
No! A scratch is actually a stress, or weak point, in the glass. By removing the scratch, you relieve this stress which restores the glass strength to nearly new condition. The process creates a structurally sound piece of glass.
