How do many of UNELKO’s products Clean & Shield in 1 Step?

An invisible super- hydrophobic (nano-shield) water, soil, and stain repellent barrier coating forms and bonds while cleaning glass, porcelain, ceramics, chrome, stainless steel, clear plastics, plastic laminates, granite and marble. The barrier coating fills the microscopic pores of surfaces to prevent soil penetration and buildup for easier next time cleaning.

Why the need to keep cleaning surfaces?

Because no surface can ever be self-cleaning, and no matter how much you clean, sanitize and disinfect…dirt, grime and surface-contact germs keep coming back. That is an irrefutable fact of living in society.

Why Shield Surfaces?

Hard surfaces have microscopic pores that trap water, organic & inorganic soil and build up, form biofilms and become increasingly unsightly and difficult to remove. By shielding surfaces with Unelko’s ‘barrier coating’ Products, an invisible water, soil, and stain repellent barrier coating is formed and the adhesion & buildup of re-soiling is dramatically reduced for easier next-time cleaning.

What do Unelko’s products protect surfaces from?

They protect against hard water minerals, soil, soap scum, buildup & other unsightly stains that detract from the appearance and utility of the surface, and which, otherwise, eventually requires repairs and replacement.

What can I expect from the performance of the “Clean & Shield” Products?

Our patented “Clean & Shield” Products provide a protective barrier coating to repel water & surface soil for easier removal of food stuff, grease, soap scum, and more. Say goodbye to sticky, grimy surfaces! Clean & Shield Products both clean and shield surfaces 1 step. They keep surfaces sanitary while minimizing re-soiling! They are perfect for granite, marble, tile, stainless steel, chrome and more!

Are the invisible, nano-shield barrier coatings durable?

Yes! When bonded to a surface, the barrier coating is unaffected by washing with soaps, solvents or detergents that would not otherwise etch or damage an uncoated version of the same surface. They are even resistant to removal with concentrated sulfuric acid, 50% sodium hydroxide solutions and sodium hypochlorite (chlorine bleach).

How long will the barrier coatings last?

They will last as long as the underlying surface remains intact or until the coating is physically abraded from the surface.

Are Unelko’s Products safe and environmentally compliant?

Absolutely! They are VOC (solvent) free, and do not contain harsh acids or alkalis, phosphates, ammonia, glycol ethers, terpenes, hydrocarbon propellents, CFCs or chlorine bleach. They are user and economically friendly products that make surfaces easier to clean. They eliminate the need for harsh cleaning & excess chemicals, release no fumes or gases, require no pre-cleaning, require no flooding of the surface, require no dwell time, and require no gloves or masks.

Do these products have an expiration date?

NO, in fact they have an unlimited shelf life in sealed or closed containers. The formulas, in the packaging provided, will perform as well many years from now, as they do today.
