Scratch Removal Training

BASIC TECHNIQUE

Basic Technique is a distortion-free process that allows you to remove most scratches in just minutes. It’s great for repairing light-to-medium scratches caused by handling, transportation, glass-on-glass rubs, razor blades, light sand paper, and windshield wipers.

ADVANCED TECHNIQUE

Advanced Technique uses microabrasive disks to remove medium-to-heavy scratches caused by graffiti, carbide scribes, welding, logos, heavy sand paper, and masonry. Because the process can cause minor distortion, this technique is intended for repairing significant damage where glass has been lost. Always master Basic Technique before attempting Advanced Technique.

FAQs

What type of glass will this work on?

Gforce works on almost every type of glass, including laminated, mirror, annealed, and tempered. We do not recommend scratch removal for textured and coated glass.

How is it possible to remove scratches without causing distortion?

With Basic Technique, glass is never removed during the scratch repair process. The combination of heat, friction, and our proprietary compound smooths the damage and restores the surface of the glass. This allows for distortion-free results.

Advanced Technique uses microabrasive disks, which causes a small layer of glass to be removed during the repair process. This can cause minor distortion, especially as you’re learning the process. Advanced Technique is intended for repairing medium-to-heavy damage that has sustained significant glass loss.

How deep of a scratch can be removed?

Many people assume you can’t remove a scratch if you can catch your fingernail on it. With Gforce, that’s absolutely untrue. If you use the right technique, almost any type of scratch can be repaired.

Basic Technique: Great for repairing light-to-medium scratches caused by handling, transportation, glass-on-glass rubs, razor blades, light sand paper, and windshield wipers.

Advanced Technique: Great for repairing medium-to-heavy scratches caused by graffiti, carbide scribes, welding, logos, heavy sand paper, and masonry.

What are the risks of using this process?

When performed correctly, the Gforce scratch removal process is low risk. The main thing to prevent is overheating the glass. For laminated, mirror, and annealed glass, we recommend working between 115-155 °F. For tempered glass, we recommend working between 155-175 °F.

Check out the training videos above to learn how and when to monitor the temperature throughout the scratch removal process.

How long will disks and compound last?

Once you’re set up with a professional GlasWeld scratch removal kit, consumable costs are extremely low.

For Basic Technique, each jar of compound lasts about 60 hours of repair time. Each polishing disk lasts about 20 hours of repair time.

How hard is it to learn?

With the Gforce Max, even inexperienced techs can successfully remove scratches using Basic Technique. We always recommend watching the training videos listed above and using a piece of scrap glass to practice on. Most beginners will feel comfortable using Basic Technique after an hour of practicing and watching training.

Compared to Basic Technique, Advanced Technique requires more time and practice to minimize distortion.
