Glass & Hydrophobic Coating
- Glass is always easier to clean and keep clean, saving time and effort
- Maintains pristine appearance
- Hinders bacterial growth for a more hygienic environment
Hard water creates unsightly and resistant water spots on the unprotected glass. The limescale from the hard water etches the surface of the glass, and high levels of humidity accelerate the corrosion process. The build-up of dirt facilitates the development of bacteria. Cleaning becomes very hard – if not impossible – no matter how hard one tries, wasting much time and effort. The appearance of the shower is completely spoiled, and the bathroom environment becomes unhygienic.
Durably seals the microscopic pores of the surface to actively repel water, soil & stains for easy removal. It provides a repellent finish that dramatically reduces the adhesion & build-up of dirt, grime, water spots, limescale, rust, soap scum & hard water minerals for easier next-time cleaning. It is extremely durable and can last for up to 5 years on most exterior glass surfaces. Like all coatings or paints, durability is dependent upon the initial application, degree of exposure, maintenance, and the ongoing abrasion to surface. It can be easily renewed without removing the prior coating to rejuvenate and refresh its shielding and protective benefits. how hard one tries, wasting much time and effort. The appearance of the shower is completely spoiled, and the bathroom environment becomes unhygienic.
Glass Technical Details:-
- Glass: Tempered glass: Available in 10mm
- Advantages of tempering/toughening glass: 4-5 times stronger than normal float glass
- Breaks into small pieces/dices minimizing the risk of injury
- Can resist thermal stress as edge strength is higher
- Tempering done at Rekluz own fully automatic state of the art tempering unit
- Tempering for shower enclosure glasses only
- 90% of an enclosure is glass, so glass must conform to the highest safety standards as it is used in the bathroom
- Quality checks: Fragmentation test: to check the breakage pattern of glass
- Zebra test: no waviness
- Ball drop test (impact resistance): to check strength at the point of impact
- Visual defects: to check bubbles, scratches, chipping at edges, and other visible defects
- Freefall test: to check the overall strength of glass, by throwing the glass freely on a plain surface
- Standards: These standards ensure that the glass passes stringent quality parameters
- Ensures consistency
- Enhances the life of the product Conforms to both European and Indian standards:
- 1| Reference: India • IS 2553 ( part 1 : 1990 ) • IS 14900 : 2000 • IS 2835 : 1987
- 2| Reference: Europe • En 14450 : 2000
- Adheres to European toughening norms
- Toughened glass is physically as well as thermally solid, and research shows that it can withstand surface compression of at least 10,000lbs per square inch, which is why toughened glass is considered to be safety glass. They are also known to be four to five times stronger than annealed glass and three times stronger than heat-strengthened glass. As these glasses are robust, they reduce the risk of damage if they come in contact with a calamity or disaster.
- Toughened glass is manufactured when the regular glass is exposed to extreme heat and then cooled rapidly. Due to this excessive heating and cooling process, the chemical composition of the glass goes through an alteration making it more resilient.
- If the toughened glass comes in contact with some harsh impact, instead of breaking into sharp, jagged shards, it breaks into harmless circular chunks. Thus, these glasses reduce the risk of injury. If toughened glass breaks, it is also more comfortable for you to clean them than the jagged shards of glass. The small chunks can easily be swept up by a broom and then thrown in the garbage without the fear of any jagged shards hurting anyone.
