Water repellent protective coating for artistic glass and glazed ceramic
SIOX-5 RE36 is a water repellent protective coating based on sol-gel technology developed by the Group of Chemistry for Cultural Heritage at the University of Padua, Italy (Patent n. 0001370467   Synthesis of silica protective films by tin-catalized sol-gel process).

HOW IT WORKS

The product contains nanostructured silica gel. Once applied it forms a layer of amorphous silica thin, colorless, transparent, compatible with the substrate. The treatment is able to reduce the roughness of glass surfaces (blown glass and glazing of ceramics) resulting in an  increase of the resistance to chemical and physical attack and of the natural water resistance of the material.
