Will Clear View Keep my Ports from Fogging?


M. D’Angelo asked:

I have an older boat with tinted, plastic ports that are foggy and discolored due to weathering. I’m guessing the ports are made of a Plexiglas type material. I can polish them with a mild automotive rubbing compound and they will clear up for a short time (about a month) but always foul up again. Will your Clear View product, especially the protector coating, keep them looking cleaner for a longer period of time? Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Yes, Clear View will keep your see through plastic clear longer.

We do not recommend that you use rubbing compounds or sandpaper on your ports as it can cause additional damage and distortion of the plastic. The Clear View No. 1 cleaner / restorer is easier to use, will do a better job and is less injurious to the plastic surface. Clear View No. 2 should be applied about every 6 to 12 weeks to keep the ports clear and protected. Because you have been using rubbing compound, you may have to apply it more frequently. Clear View No. 2 contains UV protection and anti-static materials and other ingredients to protect the surface of your plastic.

Thanks for your question,
