Pilkington OptiShower™ is an excellent solution for high humidity environments like showers. Water stains in high humidity environments can be a significant challenge. This occurs when the water starts to pull sodium from the glass and deposits a soda rich scale on the glass. These water stains are an eyesore to the crisp aesthetics of a glass enclosure and are often difficult to clean.
Pilkington OptiShower™ mitigates this by preventing the sodium leaching. This on-line coating is durable enough to withstand tough and even outdoor environments. The coating blocks the water and sodium interactions, effectively eliminating the mechanism that leads to this type of stain formation.
Frequent cleaning and the use of abrasives to manage water stains increases the potential for scratches. The Pilkington OptiShower™ coating eliminates the need for constant cleaning which means you get a cleaner glass enclosure with minimal upkeep.
Pilkington OptiShower™ can be used in more than just shower applications. Due to its durable and transparent coating it can also be used in other high humidity environments such as indoor pools, balustrades, car washes etc. The availablity of jumbo sizes, as well as the ability to apply the coating to Pilkington Optiwhite™ means the application possibilities are nearly limitless.
