Luxclear® Protect - Anti-corrosion glass

Luxclear® Protect is a coated glass product developed to protect the surface of the glass by preventing corrosion due to contaminants related to water, heat and high humidity. Over time, surface corrosion caused by this exposure can essentially “age” the glass, resulting in a dull and dirty appearance that worsens the longer the exposure exists. Unlike aftermarket products, the Luxclear® Protect coating fuses with the glass and permanently seals the glass surface so it will remain clear and new looking for the life of the product.

Did you know?

As glass is made from sand, it contains sodium in large quantities. When water enters in contact with sodium it progressively damages the surface of the glass giving it a whitish aspect that cannot be cleaned away. This is corrosion of the glass surface. With Luxclear Protect, a permanent coating is applied to the glass to protect the surface against this corrosion.

LUXCLEAR Protect has been rigorously tested to ensure a high performing product that lasts a lifetime. To simulate regular use in a shower enclosure for 20 years, LUXCLEAR Protect and clear float glass were tested at high temperatures and high humidity (50deg C + 95% Relative Humidity + > 1,900 hours). LUXCLEAR Protect showed no signs of corrosion unlike the clear float glass.

Comparison between Standard clear float and LUXCLEAR Protect
