Clean & Pristine
for a Lifetime.

HydroClear® is a coated glass product developed to protect the surface of the glass by preventing corrosion due to contaminants related to water, heat and high humidity. Over time, surface corrosion caused by this exposure can essentially “age” the glass, resulting in a dull and dirty appearance that worsens the longer the exposure exists.

Unlike aftermarket products, the HydroClear coating fuses with the glass and permanently seals the glass surface so it will remain clear and new looking for the life of the product.

This anti-corrosion solution is also ideal for shower glass doors. Now available with PurevisionTM low-iron glass.

With Ordinary Glass,
Cleaning Alone Won't Work.

As glass is made from sand, it contains sodium in large quantities. When water enters in contact with sodium it progressively damages the surface of the glass giving it a whitish aspect that cannot be cleaned away.

With Cardinal HydroClear, a permanent coating is applied to the glass to protect the surface against this corrosion.

Proven Performance

HydroClear has been rigorously tested to ensure a high performing product that lasts a lifetime.

Standard Glass
HydroClear Glass
Test Standards (50deg C + 95% Relative Humidity + > 1,900 hours).

HydroClear and clear float glass were tested at high temperature and high humidity to simulate regular use in a shower enclosure for 20 years. Unlike the clear float glass, HydroClear showed no signs of corrosion.

Applications

HydroClear is ideal for any application where exposure to water, heat, or high humidity is a concern.

HydroClear Benefits

HydroClear glass provides a superior solution to water-exposed glass surfaces:

Prevents unsightly corrosion from water, heat, and high humidity
Crystal clear, attractive appearance
Permanently hardened surface works over many decades, with a limited lifetime warranty.
