Transporting Sandblasted Glass
Transporting sandblasted glass poses an opportunity for
the sandblasted surface to be damaged or compromised. Understanding the
proper handling techniques will greatly reduce the chance of damage during
transporting. Sandblasted glass requires a higher degree of care in handling
than regular glass. This extra attention to care becomes more cost effective
than the time and money required to fix compromised product.
Milestone Mfg. will always discourage the transporting of
sandblasted glass during wet or rainy conditions, unless transported inside
an enclosed vehicle. It is always best to schedule pick-ups during dry
conditions. Glass can be plastic wrapped by the receiving agent, but is
no guarantee of full moisture resistance. If sandblasted glass becomes
unavoidably wet, pat it dry with a clean cloth or paper towels immediately
after transporting and space glass apart to facilitate the further release
of any captured surface moisture.
Do not allow sandblasted glass to maintain extended contact
with paper or plastic packing or spacer buttons. Avoid the use of cork
buttons with sandblasted glass. Separate the individual lites if glass
is to be stored longer than a few hours. It is not advised to leave sandblasted
glass stored on a truck overnight whether inside or out.
During transport, load the glass with the sandblasted surface
facing outward and with the smooth side of the glass against the support
rack. Glass with double sided blasting should be protected with clean
cardboard between the glass and the rack. When staking the glass, place
a paper towel between the stake pad and the sandblasted surface. When
tying, use clean, non-abrasive ropes only. It is not recommended to transport
any glass lying flat or at extreme angles.
Handle all laminated glass and 1/8" tempered glass
with extreme care as it becomes very fragile after sandblasting.
Do not attempt to clean the sandblasted surface prior to
fully understand all cleaning instructions. Do not install any glass that
is damaged or defective. It is the customer's responsibility to understand
and disseminate all the appropriate handling, transporting, storage, and
cleaning instructions to all those in their organization and to the end
user of the sandblasted glass.
