The story of Clear Shield began in 1981, when Stephen and Karen Byers investigated the potential for low-maintenance glass. They subsequently acquired rights to new technology for glass surface protection. Extensive research and improvements to the original formula followed, and the technology was branded ‘Clear Shield’. In 1987, Ritec International Ltd was formed in UK and continued to develop solutions for glass surface protection and renovation in the flat glass industry, effectively leading the market and gaining immense field experience with its high quality technology Clear Shield System™.

Ritec’s Clear Shield ‘Non-Stick’ Glass™ has won numerous awards and gained widespread recognition and acceptance in glass processing as the industry and end-users have become increasingly aware of the need to protect glass so that it keeps its promise of clarity, visibility and cleanliness over time.

Solutions For Internal Glass

Interior glass is designed to look beautiful. However ordinary, unprotected glass is not easy to clean. The problem is worse for glass in areas such as shower cubicles or swimming pools as limescale on glass is unsightly and extremely difficult to remove. The solution is ClearShield Low-M® (Low-Maintenance), Anti-Microbial Glass™ as it not only protects glass from contamination.

Solutions for external Glass

If ClearShield™ Energy-Saving Glass is specified before construction, it protects the glass surface from all kinds of contamination such as splatter from concrete and cement dust. These are extremely difficult – if not impossible – to remove, and the problem can result in increased costs and delays. With ClearShield protection however, it significantly saves time and energy to keep the glass in a pristine condition.

Automotive Glass

The ClearShield™ System upgrades any ordinary automotive glass, new or old, into ClearShield High-Visibility Glass™ with durable, ‘non-stick’, easy-clean surface protection.

ClearShield High-Visibility Glass™ enhances clarity and visibility for improved driver safety. The long-lasting protection acts as an invisible barrier, so any dirt or bugs are easy to remove. The glass looks cleaner for longer as well as reduces maintenance time and costs, so is ideal for fleet vehicles.
