A fundamental step

There are different kinds of glass. Cleaning the substrate properly is fundamental and depends on the initial features and the desired performance. For this purpose, it is important to prepare the substrate with AG M500 cleaner before applying the coating. AG M500 removes any organic substance from the glass surface, prevents flow and evenness flaws, thus ensuring the best coating film adhesion.


Italian Glass coatings are good-looking and attentive to the environment. But that’s not all: they have many certifications in terms of performances.
