How to remove anti-glare coating effectively?

Block Image

This is my progress on removing the anti-glare coating after 2 hours. I tried Listerine, 90% alcohol, Peek Metal Polish, anti-bacterial wipes, bleach, and nail polish remover w/ acetone (before I read that someone else damaged the glass itself because of acetone). Luckily, my glass is still fine. Unfortunately, I haven't made much progress as you can see from the picture. I'm confused to why none of the solutions isn't working for me. Some said that Listerine alone worked well along with a microfiber cloth. I tried that but since it didn't work I moved on to try all the other solutions I mentioned. Is anyone else having this issue dispite of trying all kinds of solutions? And is there any other alternatives that would make it simple to remove w/o much time being spent?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I tried them all as well, but purchased a small bottle of 3M 60150 Glass polish from a auto paint store and used a scouring pad and it took some time but it came off way faster.

@arbaman - The fluorite overcoating is what has failed which then exposes the lower softer coatings. Getting the remaining fluorite off is the tricky part! 3M Novec screen coating which I understand is what Apple uses. I couldn't get the needed solvent in anything smaller than 20 gallons! ($$$)

What was the solvent needed to remove it?

I completely removed mine using a “Mr Clean Magic Sponge.” My screen is now gorgeous and 100% not scratched, however, of course, it is very reflective.

I didn't try the Mr. Clean Magic Sponge, as the Clorox wipes were enough to remove the coating. Had they not worked, your suggestion would have been next in line. Congrats, Kathleen.

I took mine to the Apple Store, only to learn the extended warranty was over.


I stopped for Clorox Disinfecting Wipes on the way home and this was after about two minutes of wiping. Before and after:

Ridiculously easy. And no, I don’t notice any screen glare now that the coating’s gone.

Congrats to all those others buying automotive compounds and what not, but in my opinion the Clorox wipes really do the trick. I'm super picky about scratches and blotches etc., and this method definitely left my screen pristine. It did take me about five minutes (twice as long as noted above), but still got 'er done. I did not risk using the Mr. Clean eraser sponges, as they are mildly abrasive and could leave tiny marks. The Clorox wipe cloths left no marks at all.

How about getting it fixed under the extended warranty program I think its still running for this series StainGate.Org. Its getting close to the end so check your purchase date and don’t waste time!

I checked my serial on the Apple site to see if I was eligable and I was not.

I've tried using many different chemicals and abrasives I could not find a workable solution without making more of a mess!

Part of the problem is the cover glass is vapor coated with metals to reduce the glare and then a over coating of fluorite is then placed on top. What you encounter is the wearing of the fluorite coating which then exposes the softer metals. These lower coats can be removed with chemicals the over coating is very tough!

I've given up trying to save these displays. I've managed to get most of my customers replacement displays under Apples extended warranty. The few I wound't I managed to get used displays for them. It's been a good six months since I've needed to replace one.

Sadly, you're late to the party ;-{ At some point you'll need to call out uncle and just buy a replacement display. Sorry!

@danj That explains why I was having a hard time. I wanted to get rid of the coating in the first place because it had marks from the frame and keyboard. Many others probably had it easy because they already had spots w/o any coating.
