Pilkington OptiShower, a range of anticorrosive and durable glass by the NSG Group, has launched in the UK to support designers specifying glass for use in high-moisture environments.

The durable, clear glass is specifically designed to prevent surface corrosion when exposed to water, moisture and humid environments.

The highly transparent glass is easier to keep clean due to its special pyrolytic anticorrosion coating which acts as a barrier on the surface of the glass.

The glass has a wide range of residential and commercial applications, such as shower cubicles or back plates against cooking surfaces in kitchens.

Pilkington OptiShower’s anticorrosion properties also make it suitable for marine applications, such as aquariums and maritime vessels.

The range has been extensively laboratory tested at high temperatures and levels of humidity, where it demonstrated that it resists corrosion far better than untreated glass.

It meets stringent EN 1096-2 standards, which certifies the products as able to withstand challenging outdoor weather conditions and abrasion.

Kirk Green, Regional Sales Manager at Pilkington United Kingdom Limited, part of the NSG Group, said: “We’re excited to launch this product in the UK to help new customers identify applications where the glass can deliver long term durability, no matter the conditions.”

The range is coated ‘on-line’, meaning the anticorrosive coating is applied while the glass is still hot, rather than as a post-manufacture spray like many other products on the market with similar properties. This makes the product easier to process, as well as harder and more robust when in use.
