Aircraft undergoing maintenance

Alglas was founded by Alan O'Nions in 1986

Trained as a private pilot with BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation) and with a background in architectural glass and aluminium, Alan identified a need for safe and effective cleaners for glass, acrylic and other aircraft substrates.

Over many months, formulations for Algas' first product, the Aircraft Glass Cleaner, were extensively tested. The final formulation,AGC/22, was submitted for approval to BAe Military Aircraft Division. Subsequently, AGC/22 was approved for use by Boeing, Airbus, The Thales Group, Panasonic and many other O.E.Ms.

As the company grew, more products were added to the range, including the industry-first twin wet-and-dry anti-static instrument wipe, the CR215. The ALG/RCBA anti-bacterial sanitiser allowed the cleaning of all airborne electronics and avionics and the Visial VDU anti-static mist spray reduced static build-up across system displays, radars and touch screens.

All our products deliver exceptional anti-static cleaning properties across all aircraft glass, acrylic and polycarbonate surfaces, including flight desk avionics and instrumentation, touch screens, HUD (Heads-Up Displays), Headsets and EFIS (Electronic Flight Instrument System).
