The glass polishers at Chicago Glass are very successful at the art of removing damage caused to glass by grinder and weld spatter or plasma cutting, from small areas of damage, to glass panels heavily covered in spatter.
A very common occurrence during welding, angle grinding and plasma creation, is the creation of spatter leaving spots, slag, pits or sparks in the glass. The amount of spatter can be reduced by changing techniques and equipment, but, regrettably, there are still those occasions where the particles cause damage to the surface, such as glass, which is within close proximity.
How do We Remove Welding Slag, Grinder Sparks from the Glass?
Using our two stage process, we can restore the damage created on the glass.
The process of removing weld and grinder spatter to achieve clear glass, consists of two stages, of which Chicago Glass are pleased to offer both.
The first stage involves the removal of all the metal particles imbedded in the glass and then chemically cleaning the damaged area to remove any remaining metal oxides, burn marks, slag or stains. This leaves the glass with small white frosted dots where the hot metal has burnt into the surface.
The second stage is to remove these frosted dots by abraiding the surface of glass to the bottom of the dots and then polishing clear with a compound, to leave the result of clear glass.
Chicago Glass highly recommends that if you have weld and grinder spatter that you to complete the first stage of chemically cleaning the glass as soon as possible. This will stop the metal oxidising and tarnishing of the glass over time due to weathering/cleaning.
