Clean Shield Gel

 

When properly applied, Clean Shield Gel (8224) brings out luster and gives dry, matte surfaces the sealed appearance of a low-temperature firepolish. (Unfired, unsealed sandblasted surfaces have a "dry" appearance that can show fingerprints and other oils.) Ideal for glass that has been sandblasted or coldworked with loose grit, or in cases where firepolishing isn't practical. Reduces the appearance of fingerprints and heightens color and transparency.

How to use it
Make sure glass surface is thoroughly clean and dry. Squeeze a pea-sized amount of Clean Shield Gel onto the included nano-fiber application cloth, blot or rub the gel into the cloth until it is absorbed, then use the cloth to apply gel and burnish the surface. You'll notice the firepolished effect immediately. Keep in mind that a little goes a long way and that the gel is challenging to remove if too much is applied.

When not to use it
Clean Shield Gel brings about subtle changes in matte surfaces and will not create a glossy effect. It will not heal deep or linear scratches nor does it fix devitrification. Note: Once applied, the surface will resist most adhesives.

Safety guidelines
Clean Shield Gel is a concentrated, polymer-coating protectant designed for use on household fixtures. Non-toxic and solvent/VOC-free, but not recommended for food bearing surfaces.

Other applications
• Seals kilncast work that has been sandblasted
• Brightens matte, powder, and pâte de verre surfaces
