COVID-19 and the worldwide response to the Coronavirus emergency have resulted in increased demand for aircraft cleaning solutions.
ALGLAS normal office hours have therefore been extended to include Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 8am to 5pm, until further notice.

On October 16 1986, British Aerospace Military Aircraft Division, Aircraft Laboratories, Weybridge, Surrey, approved the first ALGLAS™ formulation (JB/B2) non-flammable glass cleaner for use on civil and military aircraft.

Cabin glass acrylic cleaning products

This formulation is the formative basis for ALGLAS AGC/22 1 litre cockpit/cabin glass, acrylic cleaner; Visial™ instrument/monitor/ radar cleaner; and its eminently successful wet/dry instrument wet/dry wipes.

In 1989, the U.S. Douglas Aircraft Company's Lead Engineer- Transparencies, J.L. Lister performed evaluative testing of AGC/22 (JB/B2) cleaner in accordance with Mil-P-8184 and ASTM F484-83 using a Type C stretched acrylic material conforming to Mil-P-25690.

John P. Scholl, Deputy Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, McDonnell Douglas, stated:

"ALGLAS™ AGC has been tested as a cleaner for acrylic surfaces and has been added as an approved aerospace product to the Douglas Qualified Products List."

Subsequently, DERA on 28 January 1998 issued a qualification certificate for ALGLAS™ AGC/22 liquid cleaner for use on aircraft transparencies.

It is currently successfully used on H.M. Royal Air Force fixed wing and rotary aircraft and by many of the world civil airlines.
