... the war of FOG

I intend to sharing most all of the public domain: information: trade secrets and processes for defogging windows so you can make informed decisions.

Most all of the processes and methods are now in the public domain and there remain a number of companies still trying to profit from the work originally done by Crystal Clear Window Works Canada.

At one point in time Crystal Clear Window Works Canada was the only company who had secured and developed IP rights, trade secrets and designs for the processes and methods of removing moisture from foggy windows. When the process is done properly the system works very effectively - when done by cowboys ... it is little more than a scam.

If you are considering purchasing a dealership, franchise, business system, license, country license or purchase defogging products or training for moisture removal from failed thermal pane windows we can help with due diligence and research.

You should read this site carefully and proceed with caution as there are many scam artists and fraudsters to watch out for and information that you should understand.

ssshhh - don't tell any one ... secret drying agent - Methyl Hydrate - Methyl Alcohol

Methyl Hydrate

Recochem’s Methyl Hydrate is a 99.9% pure versatile product with so many uses that all hardware and paint departments as well as automotive, camping equipment and general merchandize retailers regularly stock it.
Methyl Hydrate is used for:
  • Thinning shellac
  • Cleaning brushes that have been used with shellac
  • Cleaning windows, when mixed with water
  • Defrosting air line hoses on tractor trailers & commercial vehicles during extreme cold temperatures
  • Fondue fuel
  • Fuel for marine unpressurized alcohol stoves
  • Dissolving gums, resins, and celluloid
Recochem’s Methyl Hydrate is colourless and smokeless when burned. Since it contains methyl alcohol and is flammable, all our containers are clearly marked with poison and flammability warning symbols. Keep out of reach of children.

What kind of solutions/fluids are being sprayed inside windows

Most the low end copy cat companies are using two or three fluids.

First, they use distilled water which is inert and serves little to no purpose in the cleaning of the inside lights of glass ... caution should also we used so as not to flood the spacer bar with water.

Then add any household vinegar, such as Heinz, to the distilled water to act as a cleaner

Then they may use methanol or methyl  alcohol to dry the windows - which can be purchased off the shelf at most hardware, paint stores and big box stores.
