TruShield – Durable Glass Protection That Doesn’t React with Silicone


TruShield Doesn’t React with Silicone so is ideal for conservatory roofs and skylights

Homeowners are looking for clean and clear glass all year round, regardless of where it sits on their property. This is particularly important for conservatory roofs, roof lanterns and sky pods.

Roof glass needs to have the most light transmission and clarity possible, whilst being low-maintenance for homeowners, who don’t want the hassle of cleaning glass in hard-to-reach places. That’s why easy-clean glass and glass protection systems have become so popular.

But there are certain glass protection coatings which react with the silicone used to seal some roof glazing components during installation. This reaction can cause the silicone to fail, which in turn can lead to drips and leaks from newly-installed glazed roof systems.

TruShield® the versatile glass protection system from Edgetech UK, doesn’t react with silicone so there’s no chance of seals perishing as a direct result of contact with TruShield.

TruShield is a top choice for installers, who can be comfortable in the knowledge that the glass coating will not have a damaging effect on their installations. Plus, it means that installation companies can offer extra peace of mind to homeowners.

TruShield is durable glass protection that can be relied on. It has been tested at TÜV Rheinland Germany where a 10-year service life was simulated, subjecting the product to the harshest conditions. The long-term tests have proven that TruShield is exceptionally resistant to heat, UV rays and even chemical erosion.

Mel Jones, Territory Sales Manager for Window Products at Edgetech UK, says: “TruShield works effectively in any environmental conditions, on both organic and inorganic dirt, unlike other easy-clean systems.

“Its development has been tailored to the problems facing installers and homeowners with roof glazing – clarity and cleanliness.”

Edgetech is creating a national network of TruShield Approved Applicators. If you are an IGU Manufacturer, Fabricator or Installer interested in adding value to your offering with TruShield contact Mel at Edgetech today on: 02476 639931 or visit: www.trushield-glass.com.
