Silicone Polyurethane Hybrid Glass Coating
In the world of glass coatings, there are organic coatings, and there is AquaVue™. We took an already high performing polyurethane and attached highly weather and adhesion stable silicone. Many have asked, why use some beefed up polymers for an interior organic coating? Simple, we build them to last. In the construction environment there could be a mix of many different adhesives, sealants, gaskets, and other materials, all conspiring to damage or change the color of your glass coating. With automotive grade pigments and high performing polymers, we ensure hardness, solvent residence, and color fastness.
*Colors will look different on any two monitors. A sample of glass should be evaluated and not what you see on this web page. For color matching, we can match any paint chip, such as RAL. We have been known to match clothing, metal, and various other items.
AquaVue™ is a two-component, low VOC, water-based ambient and oven cure coating for glass. Developed for spray and roller coater applications, and easy to clean up with water. Available in primary colors that we can color match with the industries tightest color and batch-to-batch standards. As well, you can buy the primary colors and mix your own, eliminating our short several day turnaround on matches. We use the best automotive grade pigments, without heavy metals, that show the best weather, chemical and stain resistance.
This product forms a hard, durable coating and is resistant to cleaning chemicals. Areas of application include: wall-cladding, backsplashes, glass lamination, signage, partitions, pattern glass, and furnishings. It can be applied to many glass types (including metals) like annealed, tempered, reflective, and high performance glass.
For installation, we recommend neutral cure silicones as adhesives (Momentive, Dow Corning, Tremco, etc). Due to the abrasive nature of thin sets and other tile adhesives, we do not recommend using these products. Please consult ICD for construction and glazing tips as well as product compatibility. This product is not approved for use in the architectural glass spandrel cavity. Please consult the Glass Association of North America or your local codes for the proper way to support glass coated with AquaVue™ in wall-cladding and other large installations.
