What is SurfaShield G coating?
SurfaShield is a water based formulation that consists of a unique mix of inorganic oxides with titanium dioxide being its main component. The final coating creates a purely inorganic nanostructure that bonds on the surface of existing materials without thermal treatment. SurfaShield combines material functionality and industrial applicability.

How is SurfaShield G applied on glass surfaces?
HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) spraying should be used as it combines both application simplicity and an ideal uniform functional coating. Two or three applications with a very thin layer are recommended. Follow the detailed application note, as described below. SurfaShield G is transparent, chemically inert and perfectly adheres on glass surfaces by chemically anchoring on the existing surface. Estimated consumption rate: 30-38 m2/L.
How does it work?
SurfaShield G makes the glass surfaces superhydrophilic and antifogging. Due to their nano-size, SurfaShield G nanoparticles absorb the available surrounding light energy (natural or artificial) and a series of physical phenomena takes place. In particular, a rearrangement of the surface hydroxyl groups that are hydrophilic (water-loving) is realized. Thus they reduce surface tension and the coating exhibits a super-hydrophilic character: Humidity and water droplets cannot stand on the SurfaShield G coated surface and dirt, dust and pollutants get washed away. Persistent organic pollutants get decomposed by the self-cleaning properties that SurfaShield G also exhibits.
What is the benefit for treated surfaces?SurfaShield G transforms light energy in favor of cleanliness and quality of life. It is not consumed or altered. Glass surfaces are preserved as new without the need of hazardous chemicals; only water and light are necessary. The coating prevents pollutants and dust from sticking on the surface thus protecting it from stains and colorants. SurfaShield also works as an air purifier as it decomposes harmful organic substances such as volatile organic compounds (VOC) and car exhaust fumes and nitrogen oxides (NOx).
