Saint-Gobain Glass has launched SGG TIMELESS, a highly advanced glass for shower panels and bath screens with longer lasting clarity and easy cleaning.
For the home or the hotel, SGG TIMELESS not only offers high performance and superb neutral transparency but its specially developed micro-coating means water slips off its surface, repelling limescale and keeping the shine, as well as drastically cutting cleaning time. SGG TIMELESS is also covered by a ten-year warranty for its anti-corrosion qualities.
The properties of SGG TIMELESS are immediately visible …water runs off the glass, leaving no unsightly marks and condensation disperses faster, so the glass quickly regains its transparency.
Until now, limescale on shower glass seemed unavoidable. But SGG TIMELESS prevents the build-up of limescale and other residual marks. Cleaning becomes quick and easy too. Shower glass is protected against corrosion and limescale, keeping it looking as clear, bright and haze-free as new.
Accelerated ageing tests show that, while standard glass soon takes on a whitish look from stubborn corrosion, SGG TIMELESS glass remains clear, clean and bright.
SGG TIMELESS is produced by magnetron-coating metal oxides to one surface of the glass, using a process developed by SAINT-GOBAIN GLASS. It can be used in all types of industrial processing, including toughening, lamination, curving and screen-printing.
Jenni Bailey, Saint-Gobain Glass Interiors Market Manager said: “Shower and bath screens have to take a lot of punishment but they still have to look good, whether in the home, in a hotel or anywhere else.”
SGG TIMELESS complies with EN 14428 for shower enclosures and EN 1096 (Class A) for the use of coated glass in buildings. It has a light reflectance of 10% and transmittance of 88-89% depending on thickness.
Jenni continued: “Now, with SGG TIMELESS, they can look better for longer and be easier to clean – yet another example of advanced products from Saint-Gobain leading the way in the world of glass.”
