Winsol Crystal Clear 550 is used for glass that won't come clean with routine washing or extra elbow grease. 

Also used for  glass with a haze or etching caused by hard water, pollutants, or runoff from cement.

Designed to remove stage 1 alkaline buildup, exhaust particles, chemical and mineral deposits, water spots and the runoff from brick, concrete and mortar on glass. Restores the surface clarity of glass by reducing the affects of minute pitting and hard water buildup. 

One gallon can restore from 1,200 up to 4,000 square feet of glass. Safe for use indoors and out.

Hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids. Make sure you wear gloves with any type of harsher acid. Warning this will smoke/cook float glass. The chemicals in this product react with the tin in the glass. You can detect the tin/air side of the glass with a UV light or with the digital tin detector. CC550 will work safely on the air side of the glass. It is recommended to test the product on a small area of the glass to make sure you will not "cook" it before applying this product to the entire window. You want to work relatively quickly with this product if you are in hot areas.

 

If you see that you have “Smears that go away while surface is wet and reappear as soon as it is dry again”  this is generally this is an indication that the glass has Stage II Corrosion.  Crystal Clear 550 cannot correct stage II corrosion and may visually expose existing corrosion.

READ INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USE. ?
USE STRAIGHT OR DILUTED BY 50% WITH COOL WATER. ALWAYS WEAR RUBBER GLOVES, PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, BOOTS AND SPLASH GOGGLES. AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN.
Always use plastic pails and containers. Do not use metal or painted containers.  
Clean window glass before using CRYSTAL CLEAR-550. CRYSTAL CLEAR-550 is NOT a cleaner. 
ALWAYS TEST GLASS BEFORE APPLYING CRYSTAL CLEAR-550 TO ENTIRE WINDOW.
Check for surface coatings and residues such as silicone treatment, building sealer and waxes. (According to some glass manufacturers, silicone treatments and building sealers may be removed by applying toluene first to soften the film and a low abrasive rubbing compound to remove the residue.)
CHECK BOTH SIDES OF GLASS FOR STAGE II CORROSION. (GLASS WILL USUALLY TURN WHITE WITH COATINGS AND STAGE II CORROSION WHEN TESTED.) STAGE II CORROSION IS NOT CORRECTABLE AND GLASS SHOULD BE REPLACED.
Apply CRYSTAL CLEAR-550 with a natural sponge or a clean, white cloth. Wring sponge or cloth to prevent runoff. Keep solution from running down any building or other surfaces. If product runs down the glass, it is being overused. Apply for one to two minutes, then rinse with water or a dilute solution of trisodium phosphate. Repeat as necessary.
DO NOT USE CRYSTAL CLEAR-550 ON WINDOW FRAMES OR ANY NON-GLASS SURFACE. DO NOT USE ON SELF-CLEANING (TITANIUM) GLASS.  RINSE AWAY ANY SPILLS IMMEDIATELY.
NOTE: If glass becomes hazed or white, proceed no further until you can determine if it is a coating, building sealer or Stage II corrosion, or if given permission by supervision or building management personnel.
