Imagine the frustration of knowing you had a world-class view out of your windows that you couldn't see properly. The property owners of Casa Caribe, Cancun, Mexico faced this problem on a daily basis.

They have a stunning property with a front view of the beach; all the glass can be moved so the living room integrates with beach and the Caribbean Sea. The glass is a fundamental part of the design of the house. However, after several years of exposure to Cancun's weather it started to become harder to clean and more importantly the time it stayed clean began to shorten. This obviously increased the frequency and costs of cleaning. It got to the stage where it had to be cleaned everyday even on occasion, several times a day in order to have a crystal clear view the owner demanded.

Ritec International's partners in Mexico Restaura SA De CV began renovating the building. Using a highly specialized process of stain removals, cleaning and ClearShield applications - fantastic results were reached. The cleaning of the ClearShield "Non-Stick" glass now only takes place a couple of times a week with very little effort involved. These excellent results were in part due to the good maintenance the glass had already received. The glass had never been scratched nor had abrasive materials applied.
