Most glass cleaners can be used to clean the sheet without harm. These qualities, says DiGiose, make the sheet ideal for applications subjected to heavy public contact and cleaning, including transportation and architectural glazing, hockey rinks/sports arenas, electronic display screens, store fixtures, security glazing FAX (973) 442-6117.
