Take a window that is very hydrophobic and polish out a two by two foot section at the center of the window. Use this technique I have shown here in my video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mf8SzGdaZ5A Remember to use tape on all four sides of the hydrophylic square. Once done just wet the entire window and rinse it with a high TDS water. You will get plenty of drops all over the hydrophobic areas. But the water will totally sheet over the inner hydrophylic square. Here the water should drain down. When it dries you shouldn’t see anything. As for the rest of the window where there were many water drops you should see many water spots. No drops no spots. I am not saying that DI/RO tanks are a conspiracy. I am just saying we need to be thinking a little different about WFP work. There are products out there that have been developed that chemically transform glass into hydrophylic. In my video I did it by physically ‘cleaning’ the glass surface using microabrasives. Because all glass surfaces are naturally hydrophylic. If you want to see something else which is even more mind blowing check this out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHNQXdP4ffU I have been in contact with the chemist that developed this product. It is based on a nanotechnology. The cost is very little. Problem is I needed to fill out a form because he works for the government. But you know me. I get excited about stuff for awhile. Then lose interest a day later. Which really annoys the snot out of me more than it does you. Trust me on that!
Oh yeah. I am now writing for the WCM on the running topic of Water Technology. The AWC on Glass Committee research called “From the Lab to the Field”. And the EClean on Plastic Maintenance. The windowcleaner.com forum that we use here and these three publications have direct links at the top left of the Glass Smart Blog. Which has taken a turn for the moment to Glass Committee Terminology. And other stuff of course. Lots of links and photos. http://glass-smart.blogspot.com/ If you would like a link on the side of the blog as I have already done for a lot of guys just send me an email with a link to your website. I am soon going to be updating my SEO tech so I can get a lot more hits. Currently I am over 64,000 total and averaging about 5,000 a month. But once this gets out to the general public much more they will want to link with Window Cleaners who are Glass Smart. I still want to build a separate page for everyone.
