A Turko-German group has announced a liquid glass product “that will revolutionize everything.” It really does sounds like the applications are endless! They are shipping to the UK soon, but many markets may be unwilling to stock the products because they make really huge profits from cleaning products that need to be replaced regularly. Liquid glass would make virtually all of these obsolete!
Spray-on liquid glass is transparent, non-toxic, and can protect virtually any surface against almost any damage such as – water, UV radiation, dirt, heat, and bacterial infections. The liquid glass spray produces a water-resistant coating only around 100 nanometers (15-30 molecules) thick. On this nanoscale the glass is highly flexible and breathable. This makes it suitable for use on an huge array of products.
The liquid glass spray (technically “SiO2 ultra-thin layering”) is almost pure silicon dioxide (silica is the regular compound in glass) taken from quartz sand. Water or ethanol is added, depending on the type of surface to be coated. There are no additives, and the nano-scale glass coating bonds to the surface because of quantum forces. Liquid glass has a long-lasting antibacterial effect because microbes landing on the surface cannot divide or replicate easily.
