Looking for a way to bring back that like-new shine to many of the areas and appliances inside your home? Our Glass & Ceramics solution is a water-repelling coating designed to keep smooth glass and ceramic surfaces cleaner longer. Use throughout your home on windows, sliding glass doors, showers, tubs, sinks, smooth-top cooking surfaces and more to remove tough stains such as grease, oil, lime, and grime – without the use of harsh or abrasive chemicals! Better yet, it is super easy to apply. Simply spray on and wipe with a clean towel or cloth.

Your home isn’t the only place where our Glass & Ceramics solution can come in handy. Office windows, restrooms, and any other glass or ceramic surfaces throughout your business can benefit from a protective coating that will keep them cleaner and looking better for longer. Better yet, our coating will actually help to reduce heat and energy costs when applied to exterior windows.

Independent testing has proven that our environmentally friendly, non-toxic Glass & Ceramics solution is highly UV and weather-resistant. Before applying Glass & Ceramics, consider prepping your glass and ceramic surfaces with our DryWired® Glass Cleaner to create a clean surface. This glass cleaner not only degreases, but also slightly abrades the surface, allowing for any light surface stains or watermarks to be removed.

Performance Testing


Coating angle analysis abrasion testing.

Glass panels were coated with Glass and Ceramic Standard, Competitor 1, and Competitor 2 were tested according to “ISO 11998:2006: Paints and varnishes – Determination of wet-scrub resistance and cleanability of coatings.” Glass and Ceramic Standard exhibited the highest contact angle initially, as well as after the abrasion resistance testing was performed.

The determination of the contact angle was determined according to “DIN 55660-2: Paints and
varnishes – Wettability – Part 2: Determination of the free surface energy of solid surfaces by measuring the contact angle” using distilled water as test liquid.

 

Contact angles were measured every 500 hours:

Coatings 0h 500h 1000h 1500h 2000h 2500h 3000h 3500h
Competitor 1 104.1 58.9 56.7 36.4 30.1 43.6 49.4 33.9
Competitor 2 106.4 81.2 61.5 52.7 38.2 33.9 33.8 30.5
Competitor 3 103.2 80.8 59.3 52.3 38.7 30.9 30.2 29.8
Glass & Ceramic Standard 110.6 103.4 101.2 94.5 93.2 84.6 82.1 75.9

Contact Angle Degradation Over Time Due ISO 11507:2007 Conditions
The DryWired Glass and Ceramic Standard coating proved to be the most UV and weather-resistant coating compared to three competitive products tested according to ISO 11507:2007 exhibiting a decrease in contact angle of 34.7° as compared to Competitors 1, 2, and 3, which showed a decrease of 70.2°, 75.9°, and 73.4° respectively.

Application & Storage

  • Surface preparation: Ensure a clean, dry surface before application.
  • Application: Spray and wipe with a clean paper towel, or cloth.
  • Dry/cure time: This coating completely adheres to the surface after 24 hours. The coating will only exhibit the hydrophobic property after this curing period.
  • 32 oz = Coverage: 2,045 FT² [190 M²]
  • Storage: 2-year unopened shelf life. (3°C to 30°C).

 

Surface Prep

DryWired® Glass Cleaner (Optional) is a water-based cleaner for glass that utilizes aluminum oxide to create a clean surface to promote adhesion. The hydrophilic property that is present after cleaning indicates the glass is free of oils and other contaminants, ready for a nanocoating to be applied to the surface. This glass cleaner not only degreases, but also slightly abrades the surface, allowing for any light surface stains or watermarks to be removed. Recommended to use for surface preparation before application of DryWired Glass & Ceramics, DryWired Microporous and the Perma-Clean Line of products. Can also be used alone as a glass cleaner.
