Eurocoat

High quality German engineered SiO2-coatings based on Nano-technology for smooth glass and glazed ceramic surfaces. Eurocoat Glass Premium is designed to enable a smooth, glasslike surface to have less contact with dirt particles. The hydro- and oleophobic effects cause particles of contamination such as grease, oil, lime and materials for environmental pollution to adhere less to the substrates and allow them to be easily removed from the coating, i.e. without applying abrasive agents
(“easy-clean” effect). An invisible protective layer, Eurocoat treatment does not distort or change the appearance of the glass. It reduces buildup of dirt and scum that everyday cleaners cannot penetrate.

Protects Glass and Ceramic from:

  • Salt build up by the sea can’t get a grip and falls away
  • Soap Scum
  • Pollution
  • Water Stains
  • Glass Etching
  • Dirt build-up

AFTERCARE

A Eurocoat Glass Premium treatment will make future cleaning quick and easy. No more scrubbing with harsh chemicals. Follow our advice below and your glass will look pristine for years to come.

Shower: Dry down with a squeegee after each shower to remove excess water. Once a week, add detergent or body wash soap to luke warm water, wipe glass down using a microfiber cloth rinse and then a simple dry down with a squeegee to maintain the finish. For stubborn soap build up, clean glass by applying detergent to a white scourer pad.

Balustrade / External Window Glass: If glass is located by a swimming pool (chlorine/salt water) or an irrigation system, we recommend regular hose down after use. Once a month with a glass microfiber cloth or squeegee brush, add detergent & wipe glass down, then rinse off. Dry down with a squeegee to maintain the finish. Give glass a light scrub every 2-3 months by applying detergent or body wash soap to the non-abrasive White Scourer Pad. Rinse and dry.

Splashback: We recommend an easy clean with soapy water once a week (or as often as needed) will keep it looking brand new. Dry down with a squeegee to maintain the finish. Wipe off after cooking. For stubborn grease build up, clean glass by applying detergent to a white scourer pad.

Marine: We recommend a hose down after each outing. Some boat owners might also like to squeegee any excess water from glass to maintain the finish.

Shower Glass

Whilst the ClearShield Glass Protection System was not specifically designed for shower glass, it is far and away the most common application, and the thing that we treat the most. Shower Glass is frequently attached by the salts coming through the water supply, as well as some soaps and shampoos. This often leaves shower glass looking ‘milky’ or ‘cloudy’ and near impossible to keep clean. The reason for this is when the water dries on the glass, the salts deposited chemically react with the glass and leave a microscopic ‘pothole’ in which the salts then sit. Normal cleaning can not reach the buildup, which progressively gets worse with each shower.

The team at Totally Glass cannot recommend enough treating shower glass with ClearShield Glass Protection before the first use. This will protect the glass and prevent the potholes or ‘etching’ from occurring. Not only will ClearShield keep the glass looking clean and clear for years to come but also reduce cleaning by up to 85%. Also ClearShield Glass Protection comes with a 10 year guarantee.

If you have a shower that is already etched, please visit our ‘Glass Restoration’ page where we can show you how we can make your glass look new again.

Exterior Glass

The ClearShield Glass Protection System was initially created with exterior glass in mind. Often exterior glass was hard to access and cleaning was minimal, allowing bird lime, salt spray, automotive fumes and other atmospheric pollutants to build up on  the glass. ClearShield reduces not only the frequency of cleaning but also the intensity to restore glass to its gleaming best. It is for this reason that ClearShield Glass Protection has been used around the world on some of the most iconic buildings:

Lloyds of London
Heathrow Airport
Auckland Airport
LAX Airport
Empire State Building

The Parliament Building, Tbilisi, Georgia – all the exterior glass has been treated with ClearShield prior to installation.

These are just a small selection of commercial buildings names, but it is certainly in the residential space that ClearShield Glass Protection has been put to the greatest use:

Windows
Balustrades
Wind Breaks
Canopies

Marine

The marine industry has been a key part of the success of The ClearShield Glass Protection System for many years. Since its introduction to the market in 1981, The ClearShield Glass Protection System, has been applied to thousands of boats all around the world. From the Princess Cruise Liners – where every ship in the fleet has been treated, to superyachts which travel the coolest ports. From launches on the prowl for marlin to the runabout pulling a water-skier. ClearShield has treated every style and use to protect the marine glass from the harsh environment and salt attack.

Interior

The ClearShield Glass Protection System has a range of uses inside on interior glass surfaces:

making splashbacks easy to clean
stopping of staining on ceramic or induction hobs
allowing fingermarks to be easily removed from sand blasted or acid etched glass
mirrors polish to a streak free finish
Oven doors that don’t need harsh chemicals to clean

ClearShield is all about making cleaning not only easier but also less frequent! The ClearShield Glass Protection System provides effective protection against staining and discolouration; and also adhesion and growth of micro-organisms, such as bacteria and fungi on surfaces in food processing plants, restaurants and hospitals. Both formulations meet European Union (EU) and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements for direct contact with all types of food, as confirmed by an independent laboratory accredited by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Glass Restoration

When glass becomes impossible to clean due to the ‘etching’ caused by the salts in the water, most people give up or take extreme measures to remove the water marks, often ending up in scratches in the glass.

Totally Glass can remove these watermarks through buffing the glass to smooth the surface and in doing so also removing the cloudiness, and making the glass optically clear again. We then treat the glass with ClearShield Glass Protection to keep the glass looking clean and clear for years to come.

Don’t spend your weekend scrubbing your shower glass with little or no result – or worse badly scratched glass – let Totally Glass restore your glass to a like new appearance today.

We can also restore marine, commercial and exterior glass in the same way.
