Why you need a Microtek?
We all know how important bathroom hygiene is, and how much effort and time it takes to keep a bathroom clean. Large glass shower enclosures are especially difficult to keep clean. Undoubtedly, all of you have often seen traces of drops and drips of water on the glass in showers. In fact, the surface of the glass, which appears to us to be perfectly smooth, actually has microscopic pores that are invisible to the naked eye. In this regard, glass “attracts” and retains water. Under the influence of moisture, silicates contained in the glass undergo hydrolysis, as a result of which a layer of silica gel forms on the glass surface. In addition, the reaction between glass and the salts of iron, manganese, etc., contained in water, with the grease and detergents contained in detergents, causes the so-called corrosion of the glass. Corroded and damaged glass surfaces are very difficult to clean and bacteria grow and settle on the dirty surface. The problems of keeping cabins with unprotected glass clean are probably familiar to every user, and the use of aggressive chemicals for cleaning only aggravates the corrosion process.
Fortunately, technological advances in glass protection in recent years have eliminated the phenomenon of corrosion. Fleurco glass protection technology with a special Microtek coating guarantees effective and long-term protection against corrosion and preserves the high aesthetic characteristics of products. The Easy Clean coating is a protective polymer layer invisible to the naked eye, formed during glass processing. The coating has hydrophobic properties, so that water droplets do not stick to the glass surface and flow off without leaving a residue. Deprived of direct contact with water, the protected glass surface does not corrode, and the deposition of any contaminants on it and the development of bacteria is greatly reduced in comparison with uncoated glass. During application, the Microtek layer forms a strong bond with the silicon contained in the glass, transforming into a part of the glass surface. The resulting long-lasting coating compares favorably with glass protectors available on the market, which provide only short-term protection. Unfortunately, as a result of exposure to water and detergents, the effectiveness of the coating (especially its hydrophobic properties) gradually decreases, and therefore, once every 6 months, it is recommended to use the Microtek Protector, which restores the protective layer.
