Transport Glass Repairs
Most graffiti is created using glass cutters, carbide probes or spark plugs. It is either random swirling scratches over a large area or is concentrated to show words (some of which are offensive), symbols or letters - football club initials for example, or gang tags.
Chicago Glass can supply technicians, singly or in teams, to solve these problems in depots, either on a call-out basis in an emergency, for day or night work, as part of a planned glass maintenance programme or as permanent on-site staff.
Acid graffiti is a new phenomena to the UK, where vandals use hydrochloric acid, mixed either with shoe polish or acetone, in a shoe cleaning dispenser, creating a much wider band of graffiti - sometimes coloured which is both etched into the glass and forms a hard crust on the surface. Using a two-stage process, the system removes, abrasively, the hard crust and polishes out the etched surface with a minimum of distortion, leaving a smooth, clear surface. The system has been used extensively in the USA over the past three years where the problem is endemic.
