Unbelievable product for removing canopy scatches

Post by Don » Tue May 21, 2019 2:45 am

I usually do not get excited about a product. That said, I would rate this six stars out of five. About a year ago, my A&P scratched my canopy when attaching the top engine cowling back on my plane. I then purchase several acrylic scratch remover products, including Meguiars, and none of them even slightly removed the scratch. At my company, we work a lot with extremely large acrylic parts so I asked the department head what they were currently using to remove scratches. He handed me a container of a new scratch remover we had just received for the first time a few weeks prior. He also added that this stuff is like magic. He said that Boeing had been at our faculty doing a source inspection and recommenced this German made product to use on their acrylic rear projection flight simulation screens. On the way home, I stopped by my hanger and gave it a try. With just a minimum of hand rubbing on the scratch this product completely removed the scratch. Now, I can't even find where the scratch was.
It is called C-Klear 707. Anyway, I thought I would share with my fellow Diamond pilots and owners.

Have you noticed any distortion in the curved part of the canopy?

No optical distortion what so ever. After rubbing out the scratch, I inspected the area with an eagle eye and you can not tell it was rubbed out.
I also tried it on a scratch on my wife's favorite sunglasses. It came out like new as well. As you can see in photo below, we work with the largest formed acrylic parts in the world. My guys say that this has saved them hundreds of hours of hard labor polishing out acrylic scratches.

A&P also scratched my plexi (rear window). Thanks for this tip. I ordered it and will report back.

This is "German made product". Any idea where this can be purchased from Europe? Any idea what the name of the product would be here?
