Pilkington: from now on, showers will always stay clean and transparent

Pilkington OptiShower™ glass has been developed to enhance showers aesthetics

Pilkington OptiShower™ has a special surface coating, helps to keep the shower enclosure transparent and clean over time.

Pilkington OptiShower™ glass has been developed to enhance showers aesthetics, improving their appearance and facilitating maintenance.
One of the critical aspects of a standard shower cubicle or enclosure is its maintenance. It is not always easy to keep it transparent, free from traces of limescale, soap and various detergents. In fact, continuous cleaning is necessary.
Over time, the signs of deterioration and opalescence effects are observed on the glass that make its maintenance particularly laborious.
A few months ago, Pilkington Italia launched to the market Pilkington OptiShower™ a new type of glass specifically designed to solve such problems.
Thanks to its special surface coating, the glass helps to keep the shower enclosure transparent and clean over time. The highly resistant coating has anti-corrosion properties that protect the glass surface while maintaining the appearance of the shower box, making it easy to clean.
Due to its resistance to abrasion and high durability, the coating does not deteriorate during the working life of the shower cubicle, keeping all its properties constant over time.
Pilkington OptiShower™ is also a very useful product for public showers (swimming pools and sports facilities) and is ideal for hotels, where the reduction of maintenance time can be a considerable cost saving.
Further applications of Pilkington OptiShower™ may include wall coverings in bathrooms or wet rooms in general.
Thanks to the anti-corrosion coating, it can also be used in the naval sector.
Glass processors appreciate the pyrolytic coating of Pilkington OptiShower™, as it is easy to work with using standard techniques. In fact, this glass can be toughened, bent, laminated as well as silk-screened, even on the coating side.
Pilkington OptiShower™ is available on 6 and 8mm clear glass and on 8mm Pilkington Optiwhite™ extra clear glass; it can also be offered as acid-etched Pilkington OptiShower™ Opal with an elegant design for applications where comfort and privacy in the shower are required.
