“Glass is the single most important building material known to man, and it must be protected,” stated Howard G. Ohlhausen, Founder of Unelko.

For over 40 years, UNELKO CORPORATION has been a leader in the development and manufacture of advanced surface cleaners, coatings and treatments for the preservation & enhancement of a wide range of surfaces.

Several of Unelko’s acclaimed inventions include: Repcon® – Rain Repellent & Surface Conditioner used by military and commercial aircraft worldwide, Rain-X® the original “Invisible Windshield Wiper” for automotive glass, and The Invisible Shield® the world’s first long-lasting and invisible “non-stick” coating for glass, porcelain and ceramics.

UNELKO’s advanced surface care technologies have application within a variety of industries such as: Automotive/RV, Commercial Glass, Household, Marine, Janitorial, Aircraft, Solar, and Shower Glass. UNELKO is known for its surface coatings and newly patented “dual-action” cleaners which set the world’s standard for quality, durability and performance.

UNELKO’s mission is – to develop unique products that clean, protect or maintain surfaces using water, soil & stain repelling technologies for reduced soiling, easier maintenance, improved appearance and extended life.

UNELKO is known to offer Unmatched Performance and Value in its Invisible Shield® and Invisible Shield® PRO 15 Glass Coatings and REPEL® DUAL ACTION technology.  

Notable commercial glass and sanitary ware manufacturers, distributors, fabricators and installers are offering and/or using the Invisible Shield® Glass Coatings to preserve and protect glass and other high end surfaces. Manufacturers of flat glass, windows and facades, walls, partitions, mirrors, shower doors and tile, windshields, marine and solar glass can now offer a better product by protecting the glass against harmful effects of the environment, degradation and corrosion to further enhance appearance and extend the life of glass. 

Invisible Shield PRO 15 can be pre-applied to glass during manufacture or easily applied by professional contractors in the field to protect existing glass as a value-added preservation solution.

Their New, Invisible Shield Microburst 2000 Glass Coating Machine will allow large façade and window manufacturers to apply the Invisible Shield protective coating in-line as part of the glass manufacturing process. This process will make the glass more durably resistant to scratching, staining and other environmental exposure long term. 

Unelko Announces the Launch of its Invisible Shield Microburst Vertical Two Sided Glass Coating Machine within the Commercial Glass Industry

It was designed for glass manufacturers and fabricators that rely on high output, automated systems to produce, fabricate and protect volume shower glass and IG units. The Invisible Shield Microburst machine protects glass with a durable Nano Scale hydrophobic coating that seals, preserves and protects glass against water, soil and stains, scratches, pitting and corrosion.

It is extremely efficient and can coat up to 60 inches per minute and has a height capacity of 84 inches/2.13 meter of glass treated in one minute. In all, the machine can treat more than 7 million square feet of glass per year. The machine is extremely safe. All of the electronics are explosion proof and include built-in safety features.

There are many additional benefits from using the glass coating machine; these include its space saving and fully automated coating system, durable UV and IR bonding technology, efficient vertical design and its safe and fully vented system. This is the only machine the utilizes both a durable UV coating treatment and simultaneously an IR drying process," Lyons said.

Several real world projects include Apple, AGC Glass Southport, the New York City Highline, Ritz Carlton, Trump Hotels, Marriot, Hilton Hotels as well as Disney, Sea World and Smithsonian Institute. 480/991-7272 | GlassCareExperts.com

One of their primary focuses has been on the preservation, enhancement and “preventive cleaning” of residential, commercial and architectural glass including facades, windows, glass walls, doors, partitions, mirrors, skylights and canopies, shower doors and tile, solar, automotive and marine glass. “Glass is the single most important building material known to man, and it must be protected” stated founder of UNELKO, Howard G.Ohlhausen.

The original Invisible Shield® Glass Coating and New, Invisible Shield PRO 15 are high performance, ultra-thin polysiloxane coatings that durably seal and protect glass to reduce the wear, penetration, adhesion and buildup of soil, minerals, contaminants and scratches for easier and less costly  maintenance, improved appearance and extended life. Glass that is durably sealed and protected with the Invisible Shield Glass Coating can be maintained in a “like new” and pristine condition for improved appearance indefinitely. The Invisible Shield is the effective, low cost solution to the ongoing deterioration, degradation and improved cleaning of residential and commercial glass.

Invisible Shield durably “seals” the pores of the glass to make it water, soil and stain repellent, corrosion resistant and low maintenance. It is unmatched in terms of ease of application, stability, shelf life and cost per sq. foot.  Invisible Shield resists soiling, staining, weathering, fine scratches, etching, water spots and mineral build-up.  It makes only periodic cleaning & maintenance of glass easier and less costly.

The New, INVISIBLE SHIELD® PRO 15  is a professional-grade, high performance, poly-siloxane coating that durably seals and protects interior and exterior glass against wear, corrosion and degradation from environmental exposure. It preserves and protects glass windows, facades, partitions, doors, skylights, atriums, shower glass, mirrors, windshields and photovoltaic panels against soiling, staining, pitting and scratches for easier and less costly maintenance, reduced repairs, enhanced appearance and longer life. It provides continuous protection under the most severe conditions and is unaffected by washing with ordinary soaps or detergents.

 It can be incredibly challenging to properly maintain the thousands of square feet of exterior and amenity glass that is exposed to the harsh marine environment. Frequent cleanings are required to prevent the corrosive effects of salt build-up and to keep the glass clean and clear without wasting precious potable water. Unfortunately, most traditional cleaning products are too harsh and end up damaging marine glass. Thanks to Unelko’s innovative Glass Science® Marine Glass products, it is easy to remove stains and spots from even the grimiest of boat glass, balconies and balustrades—gently and effectively. The Glass Science® Marine Glass products feature a transparent polymer coating that repels water, soil and stains for easier cleaning and improved appearance. The products offer Dual Action cleaners featuring Unelko’s newly invented 3D Nanocoat Technology. Now you can clean & simultaneously shield glass in 1 simple Step and maintain ship glass easier and more cost effectively. 

The surfaces of aircraft are constantly being exposed to things like soil, salt air, rain, slush, ice, volcanic ash, atmospheric dust, exhaust residues, and condensation.

These substances, if left unchecked, will build-up on aircraft surfaces and cause serious corrosion and deterioration. The accumulated contaminates can also affect flying safety, especially during takeoffs and landings. Thanks to the Repcon and Aerovision products and their rain repelling and surface conditioning technologies, aircraft canopies and other transparencies can stay clean and safe. Repcon is currently being used by federal, institutional and governmental agencies, as well as by the military and commercial and private aircraft companies worldwide.
