Pilkington OptiShower™: The Clear Solution for Protective Coating

Glass corrosion in shower enclosures is a common issue. Over time, exposure to water, heat and humidity can cause the surface of glass to build up limescale deposits and corrode. This results in reduced transparency and compromised aesthetics. However, OptiShower, now available from Aldora, provides a clear-cut solution.

What is OptiShower Coated Glass?

OptiShower is the best shower glass coating for timeless clarity and functional integrity. It’s a durable, on-line coated clear float glass designed to prevent surface corrosion even when exposed to water, moisture and humidity. Specifically, this glass coating is pyrolytic, meaning it’s applied directly onto the glass during the float process. This ensures long-lasting durability and a protective barrier that reduces glass corrosion.

Due to its high abrasion resistance, pyrolytic coating does not deteriorate during the glass lifetime, retaining its protective properties for years to come

OptiShower offers numerous benefits to help ensure you can provide customers with the highest quality for your shower install. Benefits include:
