GGF Release Glass Repair Technical Publication

The GGF has recently released a new Data Sheet entitled, “Glass Repair Removal of Surface Damage from Glass.”     The publication covers the optical and quality factors that influences the appearance of glass following surface repair.

The major emphasis of this new technical document is on the visual performance when glass is viewed from inside a building.

Bob Griffin of Re-newglass and Chairman of the GGF Glass Repair Group commented; “This will prove not only a highly useful data sheet but also a very important one for the sector. For some time there has been concern in the industry over glass polishing and in particular on toughened glass. This document answers those concerns.”

The Data Sheet addresses causes and types of glass surface and edge damage as well as optical and visual quality across many types of glass including annealed, toughened, laminated and coated glass. The publication then explains the repair process and method of assessment.

Bob added, “I am very pleased this publication has been released. It will provide vital information for customers and glass producers who are looking for guidance on treatment options for surface damage. It is the authoritative technical publication that should become a required industry reference for all looking to repair glass.”

Brian Baker of Glassolutions and GGF President is a Member of the Glass Repair Group and helped produce this latest document. Brian concluded, “It is yet another excellent addition to the GGF library of technical information and I have no doubt will be essential in guiding the industry when it comes to repairing glass surfaces.”

The Glass Repair Removal of Surface Damage from Glass Data Sheet is available for free download for all GGF Members from the Members’ Area of the GGF website by clicking here.

Non-Members can buy this new product direct from the GGF Shop here.

The Glass Repair Group is currently reviewing its online presence and is planning to create three new sections on the GGF Website in the autumn including; Industry Case Studies, Five Steps to Help Decide on Glass Repair and a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Glass Repair.  

In addition, Chairman Bob Griffin will be presenting at GGF Members’ Day on 1st September in London, where he will be highlighting the Group’s activity.
