Intense Focus On Research & Product Development

Unelko has focused on the research & development of the newest and efficacious solvent-extended poly siloxane and non-solvent based organosilane quaternary technologies to clean & protect glass and other surfaces. Unelko continues to develop high performance products that make a difference and have developed several new glass cleaning/coating technologies that are “game changers” for the Industry.

Unelko has relied on its extensive cleaning and coating experience to develop products based on the fact that; hard surfaces are like sponges; they have microscopic pores that attract and trap water, organic and inorganic soils, minerals, bacteria and bio-films that build up and form deposits and stains which are difficult to remove and are a breeding ground for a variety of other microorganisms. Everyday surfaces such as glass, porcelain, ceramics, plastics, stone, laminates, metal and textiles are porous, naturally hydrophilic and water, soil, stain & microbe accepting. Surfaces and products are easily damaged/degraded and can become increasingly porous as they age, wear and corrode. “No matter how much we clean, sanitize or disinfect surfaces, it is inescapable that dirt, grime and surface-contact germs KEEP COMING BACK”; sometimes within seconds”.

With extensive research in a variety of compounds including traditional quats, polymers, surfactant and coating chemistry, including Dimethyl Silicones and Quaternary Ammonium compounds, and the 3-Trimethoxysilyl Propyldimethyl Octadecyl Ammonium Chloride originally manufactured by Dow Chemical, Unelko has developed patented and registered new surface care technologies. Products that incorporate the unique organosilane molecule for increased product performance, multifunctionality, microbe-resistant coating technology and improved surface hygiene.

The Organosilane Surface Coating Technology Represents a New Breed of “Microbe-resistant” Coating Technology

When polymerized to a surface, it provides prolonged protection against odor causing microbes such as problematic bacteria, fungi, mold, mildew, algae, viruses and other microorganisms. With periodic, ongoing use it can make surfaces almost permanently hydrophobic, water & soil repellent, microbe-resistant and resistant to a variety of microorganisms.

The Sani-Shield Microbe-resistant Coating Technology and Invisible Shield® Cleaner/Coatings protect hard surfaces and textiles such as glass, metals, fabrics/clothing, bedding, air-filters, carpet/flooring, building materials, dental, medical & lab equipment; surfaces in homes, schools, hospitality and many other public facilities against microbial growth and contamination in between cleanings…including high traffic facilities and touch surfaces where large numbers of people congregate.

Invisible Shield® Protection

Unelko - Glass Illustration - Protected

Invisible Shield durably seals the microscopic pores of the surface to actively repel water, soil & stains for easy removal.

Water, Grime & Mineral Stains
