Hi. Other than replacing the entire pane of glass, does anyone have
products or methods they use to repair scratches in glass? The scratch is
not able to be felt with my fingernail, so I think if there is a polishing
compound or something like that it might work. Thanks for any ideas.
I once purchased a car where the windshield wipers had been neglected
and the clips had scratched a large arch in the car windshield causing
it to fail inspection. I paid a man $10 to fix it but I don't know
what he did. You might try calling around for how to fix a scratched
Hope this helps,
What you need is this glass polishing kit from JC Whitney:
It's just cerium oxide polish and a hard felt buff....Those things
haven't changed much in a long time....
A bit pricey, but I got one earlier this year to remove some "windshield
blade" scratches from the kid's car and it worked "slicker than snot on
a brass doorknob".
You need an electric srill of course...
It is only about 8 inches by 7 inches. I priced it at the hardware for a
piece the above dimensions, 1/8 inch thick, and it was a 1.20. I'll
probably go this route with this, but was just looking for ideas as well in
case it would be in a larger piece of glass such as one of my house windows
which instead of individual panes are a large piece.
That's interesting. Flat glass is nearly always soda-lime glass. Regardless
of the process used to make it, it has about the same hardness (scratch
resistance, not durability). It is refered to as soft glass not because of
it's hardness, but because of it lower melting point neaded to ease the
manufacture of it.
In colloquial English glass is a solid at room temperature. Solid has
a different definition in colloquial English than in the science lab.
Someone isn't wrong when they say an empty cardboard box has nothing in
it because of all that air in there.
Hope this helps,
