Following the Storage and Handling Instructions are essential to ensuring a long useful life for your printed glass products.
Printed Glass Storage
Delivery dates should be scheduled to minimize the amount of time custom printed glass is stored at the job site. Shipping crates should be stored inside if possible to make sure the glass stays dry.
Temperature is also important. The printed glass should remain above the dew point to prevent condensation and possible glass staining. Avoid exposure to rain, water or direct sunlight. Damage to the product can occur as a result of improper storage conditions.
Printed Glass Handling
In service glass breakage due to thermal and mechanical stresses can occur if glass edges are damaged in handling. Edges of the glass should not be allowed to contact frames or any hard surfaces during handling, storage or installation.
Printed Glass Cleaning
- Wash with a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water using a clean sponge or soft cloth. Rinse well with water. Dry thoroughly with chamois or moist cellulose sponge.
- Remove masking adhesives, glazing compound, grease and paint splashes with compatible cleaning agents.
- Wash again with a mild soap or detergent and lukewarm water using a clean sponge or soft cloth. Rinse well with water. Dry thoroughly with chamois or moist cellulose sponge.
