Date: 19 May 2015

Aerospace Research Centre, Coventry UK - The £30 million Aerospace Research Centre in Ansty Park, Coventry draws on the collaborative expertise of some of the biggest names in architecture, construction, international property, and manufacturing.

EnduroShield joins the list of multinational corporations who have contributed to the creation of this ground-breaking facility. The Aerospace Research Centre is part of three developments on behalf of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) expected to reach completion in April 2015.Set on 100 acres of beautifully landscaped parklands at Ansty Park, the state-of-the-art construction will be the new home for innovation excellence, supporting manufacturing development, and industrial aerospace design and research.

The 9100sqm landmark facility pushes the boundaries in architectural innovation and has acquired notable significance on a global scale. EnduroShield's easy clean surface treatment was chosen as part of the bespoke design to protect the glass surfaces and reduce ongoing maintenance into the future. The multi-million pound structure will be protected for beyond 10 years from staining, etching, and UV degradation.

APPLICATION The EnduroShield coated glass used in the Aerospace Research Centre was produced by Ravensby Glass for Saint Gobain Glass (UK), a world leading glass manufacturer. Partnering with EnduroShield enables the glass manufacturer to provide a sustainable solution which meets the growing demand for economic and time efficient materials. EnduroShield easy clean surface treatment for glass chemically bonds to the glass substrate, transforming it into a high performance hydrophobic surface which will protect against staining, and reduce the effort and frequency of maintenance.

The ambitious Aerospace Research Centre project marks an inspiring advancement for innovative design and is fast gathering international recognition as a world-class space.

ABOUT ENDUROSHIELD EnduroShield is the smart choice for exterior glass surfaces, providing a permanent*, ultra-thin, transparent coating that completely adheres to the glass surface. The coating provides a reduction of both the frequency and the time spent cleaning.

Developed with cutting edge nanotechnology, the coating is applied by many of the world's leading glass companies and is an official partner to Lisec Corporation, the world's largest manufacturer of high-tech production lines for the glass industry.

*Independently tested and certified by TÜV Rheinland, Germany for durability to simulate a lifetime of 10 years on interior and exterior use.
