Step 2 in the lens clarifying process!
Most auto manufacturers now use polycarbonate headlight lenses on their vehicles. Window grade polycarbonate is perfectly clear and highly impact resistant. It’s “soft” compared to many other rigid plastics, which allows it to bounce back from considerable impact. This softness also allows it to be polished to correct scratches and cloudiness. You can imagine that it takes an aggressive polish to penetrate plastic, so the initial results may appear rougher than you’d like. To restore the smoothness and optical clarity of the lens, use Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
.Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
is step 2 in the lens cleaning system. It is a fine grade finishing polish that perfects the lens surface after it has been repaired with Wolfgang Plastik Lens Cleaner.
Just like a paint glaze, Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
has mild cleaning properties but contains no abrasives. It removes any roughness or haze caused by the abrasive action of the lens cleaner and restores the optical clarity and smoothness. Though you will see an improvement after polishing the lens, you need Lens Glaze
to see the complete results of your work. Your lenses will show a drastic improvement in cleanliness and optical clarity.Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze can also be used to clean and clarify motorcycle windshields and clear vinyl windows on convertible tops.
The gentle formula will not scratch these surfaces as it removes cloudiness, yellowing, creases, and scratches. Many people replace their convertible tops after a few years because they become yellow and dingy. Save yourself several hundred dollars by using Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
Likewise, replacing headlight lens covers can cost in the neighborhood of $500. By using the Wolfgang system, you save all that money and you still get the appearance of new or nearly new lenses!
Apply Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
using a 4” gray pad adapted to your cordless or electric drill. If using a cordless drill, work at the highest speed. If using an electric drill, use the lowest setting.
- If using a dual action polisher, set the maximum speed to 5000 OPM. If using a circular polisher, do not exceed 1500 RPM.
- Apply a small circle of glaze onto the pad and start polishing at a low speed to reduce splatter. Polish until the glaze starts to dry.
- Buff away the remaining residue with a microfiber towel.
- Follow up with Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant to maintain the transparency of the lens covers.
