About Us

The story of ClearShield began in 1981, when Stephen and Karen Byers investigated the potential for low-maintenance glass. They subsequently acquired rights to new technology for glass surface protection. Extensive research and improvements to the original formula followed, and the technology was branded 'ClearShield'. In 1987, Ritec International Ltd was formed in the UK and continued to develop solutions for glass surface protection and renovation in the flat glass industry, effectively leading the market and gaining immense field experience with its high quality technology ClearShield System™.

Ritec’s ClearShield 'Non-Stick' Glass™ has won numerous awards and gained widespread recognition and acceptance in glass processing as the industry and end-users have become increasingly aware of the need to protect glass so that it keeps its promise of clarity, visibility and cleanliness over time.

Committed to innovative product development, Ritec has not only built on its expertise for the protection of glass but also developed a fully integrated system for the renovation and maintenance of glass. Its range of quality products provides solutions to all glass users, whether applied in the factory to new glass or onsite to bring old glass back to its original state.

The performance of ClearShield™ is well recognised by the industry, and has proven results based not only on laboratory tests but more importantly on many years of experience.
