    I was able to canceled my Amazon order of the coated replacement shield. For about the same money I ordered 3 regular ones. I'll let you know if they work for me in Hawaii...

    Emiliano, I have used the Novus 2, for polishing scratches out of CA finished pens and it works well. Novus makes three polishes designated as Novus 1 ( polish and clean ), Novus 2 ( fine scratch remover ), and Novus 3 ( heavy scratch remover ). I tried cleaning CA splatter with the Novus 2 and that is like trying to sand out tearout, for me. Just easier to buy a new $5 one. Also the Novus 1 provides anti-fog and static protection.

    I think the answer is that they serve a very small specialty market so they don't have the volume of sales of places like Amazon and the big box stores.

    I think my original paper work came with mine said to wash with soap and water towel off with soft towel.

    Emiliano, the anti-fog visors are also hardened... and that should reduce chipping/scratching/pitting caused by shavings that hit the shield. I always choose hardened visors when available.

    I think you'll be happy with your decision. I've been using the uncoated for some time now with no problems. I use a soapy solution of dawn dishwashing detergent and a soft cloth if I need to remove gunk. And once in a long while I use the Novus 2 if I get some surface scratches. Good luck!
