Vitroguard® Liquid Glass for Soft (Absorbent) Surfaces (500ml)
Vitroguard® Liquid Glass for Soft (Absorbent) Surfaces
Vitroguard® Liquid Glass for Soft Surfaces allows for absorbent porous surfaces to become a breathable, waterproof and water repellant surface. Made in Germany, this patented Nano-technology creates a very thin glass surface around each of the material’s molecule, enabling the material to become a waterproof and liquid repellant surface. Any dirt and liquids landing on a Vitroguard® Liquid Glass treated surface will slide right off when put under a small stream of running water, without the item becoming wet itself. UV resistant and can undergo several times of hand washing, your item will be safely treated for a long period of time.
What is Liquid Glass?
Liquid glass (technically termed “SiO2 ultra-thin layering”) consists of almost pure silicon dioxide (silica, the normal compound in glass) extracted from quartz sand. It can be Water based or Ethanol based, depending on the item to be treated. Vitroguard® Liquid Glass uses patented Nanotechnology to enable the liquid glass to adhere to the surface required, creating a thin film to protect the item.
- 100% Invisible
- 200% Flexible
- Creates a Hydrophobic Layer and Oleophobic layer so that water or oil based substances cannot adhere or penetrate the surface
- Resists acids and alkaline
- Withstand extreme temperatures
How to use:
Spray Vitroguard® Liquid Glass for Soft Surfaces liberally onto the surface of the item you wish to treat and allow for the surface to be fully soaked (but not dripping). Allow to air dry for 24 hours until completely dry to the touch. Do a water drop test to confirm success – the water droplet should be rounded and easily slide off. For best results, ensure the item is completely dry and clean before treating, and there is no previous layer of wax (e.g. leather items and waxed wooden items).
