Glass Coatings Market: Introduction
Glass coatings contain particles of silicon dioxide along with hard resin and are used to repel contamination and maintain the aesthetic appearance of various objects. They are not made of glass but contain silica, which is used in the making of glass. Glass is basically made of various materials such as sodium, calcium, silica, alumina, magnesium and potassium. Glass coatings, on the other hand, are made of fluorine, silica, silicon and titanium. Glass coatings, upon application, enhance longevity – the lifespan of glass coatings ranges between six months and two years in typical working environments. Glass coatings are extensively used for the purpose of surface protection and to enhance the appearance of objects in various industries such as automotive, aerospace, household products, building and construction and others.
Glass coatings are expensive and often pose threats due to toxic ingredients such as aladdin double shield, Sio2, modesta BC-04 and TIB chemical. On the basis of material, there are two types of glass coatings, namely Polyurethane (PU) glass coatings and stoving glass coatings. PU glass coatings are used during the finishing process of glass substances. These glass coatings are available in transparent, frost and opaque finishes and are widely used in glass surface applications such as in glass bottles for liquor and fancy lights.
Stoving glass coatings are single-coating products available in transparent, frost and opaque finishes, mostly used for industrial applications. Glass coatings are used in various industries such as marine, aviation, aerospace, household products, automotive and various others. They utilize two coating techniques, namely liquid glass coating and nano glass coating. Based on application, glass coatings can be divided into two categories, namely non-industrial and industrial. The advanced properties of glass coatings include enhanced scratch resistance, long lasting durable protection and substantial resistance to water, ice and snow. Glass coatings also provide corrosion resistance, UV protection and self-cleaning properties.
