PRIST PGC-13 Acrylic, Plastic and Glass Cleaner: Formulated specifically for aviation and for all types of windscreens.
When we developed a windscreen cleaner, we formulated one that would attack tough surface grime - without harming the delicate finish of a transparency. One that would, unlike a lot of cleaners, work equally well on all transparency surfaces without harm.
Prist Acrylic, Plastic and Glass Cleaner works safely and easily on all acrylic, stretched acrylic, polycarbonate, glass and coated glass aircraft windscreens. And it works inside and outside the aircraft, and on metal and vinyl, without harming painted surfaces. Prist cleaner is tough on dirt - and gentle on everything else.
No more abrasive cleaners - no more solvents! Most general purpose cleaners contain harsh solvents that will eventually cause windscreen hazing or streaking - especially on non-glass surfaces. Prist cleaner contains no abrasive cleaning agents or propellants. And unlike other cleaners, it dispenses as a foam, so work areas are easily defined.
Prist cleaner effectively breaks down and removes stubborn grease, and dissolves sticky organic residue from insects and birds. Its fast-acting formulation provides tough cleaning power with a minimum of scrubbing. Prist cleaner also contains an anti-static compound that prevents the buildup of static charge, which can attract damaging airborne particles that scratch surfaces during cleaning.
Handling and storage
Prist Acrylic, Plastic and Glass Cleaner is absolutely safe when used as directed, and contains no dangerous chemicals either in its formulation or propellant.
As with any aerosol, store out of direct sunlight. Do not puncture or incinerate, and avoid exposure to high heat.

Prist Cleaner exceeds military specifications.
Prist Acrylic, Plastic and Glass Cleaner was tested against federal test standard method No. 406 and military specification MIL-P-008184D. After imposing test conditions for three times the required time, test transparencies evidenced no crazing, clouding or other surface defect.
How to Use
The best way to increase the lifespan of a windscreen is to clean it properly.
Step 1: Always flood the area with water to wash away surface dirt, and, using hands or fingertips, attempt to loosen any residue adhering to the transparency. Step 2: Apply Prist cleaner to one area at a time, then wipe away with a soft, non-synthetic cloth. Genuine chamois or 100% cotton terrycloth or flannel are good choices. Never use paper towels, which are highly abrasive and will cause hairline scratches. Cleaning with a circular motion can cause glare rings, so use an up and down motion. Folding a cloth to expose a clean area after each pass will prevent scratching from dirt that accumulates on the cloth itself. Step 3: After it has completely dried, apply a thin coat of hard wax to the transparency. This will reduce water absorption in flight, and help prevent pitting. In between waxings, the anti-static contained in Prist cleaner minimizes the negative electrical charge built up during flight, and helps repel dust and dirt.
