Cardinal’s Neat Glass Upgrades harness the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. Your windows will stay cleaner longer and will clean easier. Homeowners and builders will enjoy the effects that a little sun, rain and Neat glass brings to windows.
The titanium dioxide layer of Neat glass reacts chemically with the sun’s UV rays and causes organic materials that are on the glass to decompose. It works even on cloudy days, as 80% of UV radiation gets through cloud cover. Thus when it rains, the decomposed dirt no longer clings to the glass, easily rinsing away.
And Neat glass is ultra smooth. A thin layer of silicon dioxide makes Neat glass exceptionally smooth and hydrophilic, much smoother than ordinary hydrophobic glass. This allows water to disperse evenly or “sheet off” and evaporate quickly, greatly reducing water spotting.
CARDINAL’S PRESERVE window film provides an end-to-end solution to dirty and marred windows. Pre-applied on Cardinal insulating glass units, Preserve film protects the contractors and homeowners interest during construction. At the end of a project, just simply remove the Preserve Film to show off your perfectly clean windows.
Without Preserve, glass generally requires at least two heavy-duty cleanings before a job is finished. A recent market research study found that Preserve could save hundreds of dollars per house in cleanup costs, essentially paying for itself.
