Low e windows

I know I new on the site but need some help. Been in the window cleaning a long time but a new rule came in to work in South Africa that says all new houses that is been build must be build with the LOW E windows. Now my question how do you clean the windows without scratching the film on the inside and how do one get the building dirt example ("Plaster & Paint") off the film without blading it. Please Help

Is that the film that feels, almost sticky? Like its got a film of rubber on it? I have heard it called E10 by some of the Australian guys.

 

If so, we don't get much of that coating here in the UK. Other companies like Pilkington make a energy saving glass here but the coating is different and easier to clean. You still need to use care, but it doesn't drag on your tools.

Hi Paul

 

It's more off a smooth thin film but very easy to scratch. Definitely not a window tint. Can one use Chemicals on the inside or rather stick with only Pure water?
