(cod. ISO3620/2) Protective treatment for float/extra clear glass
Glass is considered a smooth and compact material. However, at the microscopic level, it shows roughness and micropores able to retain impurities and to slow down the water flow. Outdoor glass and shower doors are subjected to limescale deposition. Limescale removal and in general glass cleaning are time consuming operations requiring the use of acid substances able to dissolve surface deposits. Over time the glass becomes non-transparent and loses its aesthetic features.

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET
|ADVANTAGES OF THE SIOX-5 C TREATMENT|
SIOX‐5 C (cod. ISO3620/2) is a protective treatment which creates a smooth, dense and compact layer of the same chemical composition of the glass. The tretment is particularly appropriate for shower stall, platforms and parapets since it increases the water repellant features of the material. The contact time of water with glass is strongly reduced and thus the formation of limescale is less frequent. Cleaning and regular maintenance are therefore facilitated since possible deposits are easily removed without harsh cleaners harmful to the operators.
The main advantages from the technical point of view:
|HOW IT WORKS|
The protective action of the SIOX-5 C (cod. ISO3620/2) coating is given by the reduction of the surface roughness. The treatment is able to smooth the glass, with a decrease of the specific surface in contact with water and chemical substances, as shown below.

reduction of the specific surface results in a reduction of hydroxyl
groups responsible of the affinity of the material with water. The
permanent water repellant effect is due to the small number of OH
groups which does not allow the bond with drops. As a consequence, also
the deposition of grime and limescale carried by water is strongly
smaller specific surface means a smooth and homogeneus layer without
microcracks and pores able to absorb impurities responsible of the
decrease of the transarency of glass. The limescale cannot penetrate
and it is therefore easy its removal.|
