While invisible to the naked eye, glass surfaces contain microscopic peaks and valleys that retain and trap minerals from water, soap scum, and bacteria, age, exposure to heat, light, and common household cleaners accelerate the corrosion process – meaning the more uncoated glass is cleaned, the harder it will be to keep clean. Glass + Mirror Craft’s Diamon-Fusion, ClearShield and ShowerGuard Specialty Coatings seal glass from corrosion, buildup of minerals, and dirt. Protect your glass investment and keep that new look over time.
Diamon-Fusion is an ultra-thin transparent glass coating that can be applied to a wide range of glass and glass-like surfaces in the residential, commercial and automotive markets. Similar to a non-stick cooking pan, cleaning is done less frequently and made easier using only water and a microfiber towel. Its breakthrough in nanotechnology is at the forefront of the industry.
- Superior surface protection
- Hydrophobic and oleophobic
- Easier and less frequent cleaning
- No special cleaning products required
- Environmentally Friendly
- Improved brilliance and UV stable
- Wide range of applications
- 15 Year commercial warranty
Glass is naturally porous
Untreated glass is naturally porous which allows hard water and contaminants to penetrate the surface causing stains and corrosion. Over time these contaminants can destroy the beauty of the glass.
Stage One: fills in the gaps
Diamon-Fusion fills in the peaks and valleys of the glass by creating a chemical reaction that causes a “cross-linked” and “branched” silicone film to be grown out from below the surface.
Stage two: caps the process
The second stage ‘caps’ the entire chain of atoms. This unique ‘capping’ substantially increases the hydrophobicity and durability of the glass, leaving no points of attachment – completing the Diamon-Fusion process.
ShowerGuard is the first permanent shower glass protection product that seals the surface, preventing chemical corrosion and reducing spots, residue, stains, and scale build-up. Unlike spray-on surface coatings that eventually wear off. ShowerGuard’s patented ion-beam process, permanently fuses a perfectly smooth, microscopic layer of silicon dioxide to the surface of the glass as it’s manufactured backed by a limited lifetime warranty. This process seals the surface preventing chemical corrosion, reducing spots, residues, stains, and scale build-up, resulting in glass that is less expensive to maintain and easier to clean.
ShowerGuard is available in three types:
ShowerGuard fused to regular clear glass
ShowerGuard fused to low-iron glass, eliminating the green tint present in standard clear glass
ShowerGuard fused to both the etched outside and smooth inside surfaces, affords full light with some privacy (non stock product – special orders only )
ClearShield is a permanently bonded polymer resin coating that prevents water mineral buildup and corrosion from the elements. This barrier also protects against water spots, fingerprints, stains and bacteria resulting in glass that is less expensive to maintain and easier to clean.
- keeps glass looking like new
- reduces water spots and fingerprints
- ease of cleaning = less to maintain
- helps glass stay cleaner, longer
- significantly reduces the growth of bacteria
ClearShield is suitable for nearly any type of glass surface including shower enclosures, residential and commercial windows, decorative glass and marine applications.
While applied primarily for showers, ShowerGuard can be used for any application that requires frequent cleaning or exposure to water.
