PROBLEM: Scratches in Glass
SOLUTION: Aggressive Abrasives, Sanding

Unfortunately scratches are common on glass; graffiti artists have found glass panels on office buildings and shopping centers to be rich terrain. There are no chemicals that can repair scratches; they can only be removed by basically sanding or grinding the glass around the scratch down to a level deeper than the deepest part of the scratch. There are two ways this can be attempted; strong abrasives like compound polish used on cars, or pads that are basically very fine sandpaper. Both techniques are applied with electric devices that spin and grind the glass down. Rougher grades are used first for deeper cutting, and finer grades are used to deliver smoother glass. See page 40. There is specialty equipment designed for larger jobs or businesses that make quick work of scratch removal.
