By Lisa VINE VOICE on September 20, 2010
I used the Armour Etch Cream as it was intended to be used which is to etch glass (imagine that?!) and the results were rather nice. I etched a 12" x 12" mirror, and left it on for 1 minute as instructed. The result was a nicely etched mirror however there were two little spots which didn't etch. I must of not applied it evenly in these areas. I added just a bit more etching cream in those areas and well... it etched it but of course the bit I added overlapped the areas which were etched and etched those areas some more resulting a bit of a splotchy look . Ugh!

NOT Armour Etch Creams fault as this was my first try. I'm seriously thinking about using a bunch of this stuff to etch my shower door but going to practice a bit.

So I wiped off what I used on my mirror and salvaged as much of the cream as I could, replacing it back in the jar. Does anyone know if this was an ok move? I don't recall that I saw anything on the jar which said not to do this.

btw.. I'm rather annoyed at the reviews were people are rating this product one or two stars because it didn't take some sort of coating off on their glasses. This product isn't advertised to do such a thing and should not be dinged for not performing a function it was NOT designed to perform or does it advertise that it does.

Update on 11/9/2010:
I was just reminded that I need to update my review. I went to Armour Etch's website to find out if this product could be used to etch large surfaces (my shower door for example) and it's website they say that they do no recommend using this product for large surfaces.

I used this cream to remove the anti-reflective coating off of three pairs of otherwise perfect glasses (the AR coating was scratched only). After about 5 minutes time the coating easily came off. I recommend you wear gloves at all times when using the product, however, as you can get burned otherwise.

I used this to remove the AR treatment from my polycarbonate transition lenses. It worked like a charm! I put on a thick coat for 5 minutes and rinsed and then repeated this. The glasses are cleaner than they have ever been. A $12 fix for a $500 pair of glasses making them like new.

This product may not be recommended for removal of anti reflective coating but what the heck, my 2 year old Transition eyeglasses were virtually unusable because of scratches in the coating, so I tried this product as I had nothing to lose. Results were unbelievably AMAZING. After about 5 minutes on the lenses (back and front, of course) the lenses were CLEAR! My only regret is that I had already ordered a new pair of eyeglasses because I doubted all of the other positive reviews!! Don't make the same mistake. Try this product.

Just a note: It seems that some anti reflective coatings are actually embedded into the lenses while others are more of a coating put on in the "factory". This worked for me on the type of coating applied to the lenses.

THIS PRODUCT FIXED MY EYE GLASSES!!! That stupid coating that starts to break down, making your glasses cloudy and looked scratched? Yep, GONE! Sooooo happy!!! WOOOHOOOO!! Applied thick coat for 5 min's and rinsed w hot water....had to repeat 1 more time and now I have sparkling, clear eye glasses! I was told to do this only if you have plastic lenses, of course it wld be a sad outcome w glass lenses.

I picked some of this up at the local hobby store - I used it to etch a glass jar that was going to be part of a gift. It worked exactly as expected with no real issues, and the end product came out looking nice. It isn't a really deep, blatant etching, but it is certainly noticeable. If you have the glass over a dark background I imagine it will look the best. The etching seems durable, and although I'm not planning on testing whether it is dish-washer safe or not, it seems to me that it would be.

One note - I left this on for anywhere from 10 minutes to 40 minutes, and all of them looked about identical. The directions on my bottle only specified 60 seconds, but that seemed short to me according to what I had been reading online. At any rate, 10 minutes is certainly sufficient, and I wouldn't be surprised if it could work even faster - I just didn't want to push my luck - better safe than sorry.

I used this product to remove the anti reflect coating from my eye glasses lenses. The lenses are Polycarbonate and not glass.
This product completely remove the coating. The only thing is that now the lenses are so reflective it bothers my eyes to wear them ...lol
well, at least this product did what it was supposed to do.

Used this on a pair of glasses that had the AR coating scratching/coming off. It removed the old AR coating and left the glasses like new. I couldn't be happier. I just dabbed the Armour Etch on with a q-tip (do not rub, since there is abrasive material in the Armour Etch). I left it on for about 3-5 minutes, then simply washed it off with warm water. I re-applied to any small areas of AR coating that didn't get taken off the first time. After that, it was all done... took a total of 10 minutes and saved me a trip to the eye doctor.
