How can I order from Clearview Shields blemished inventory?
During the Plastic manufacturers final packaging process some slight surface flaws occur through the handling of the material before they mask it to ship out to the distributors. It is not until our final process of thermoforming that we will discover these flaws. At that point 50% of the fabrication time to produce that windshield has taken place. Since these flaws do not affect the windscreen structurally we opt to finish the process and offer the screen at a discount.These shields are called “Blemished Shields”. The surface flaws include hairline scratches and at times small specs found virtually anywhere on the screen. Clearview Shields sells these shields at a discounted price with the full manufacturer’s warranty.
If you are interested in ordering from Clearview Shields’ blemished inventory, you can find them on our website.
