Or if you want to get rid of the frequent glass cleaning,just choose our self cleaning tempered glass products with 10 years warranty,the pre-treated glass panels in our glass factory will have a coating that chemically bonds to the surface, creating a non-stick barrier resistant to corrosion, etching, and staining. However, while cleaning is made easier and less frequent, the need to clean is not eliminated. Treated glass becomes both hydrophobic and oleophobic (water and oil repellent) protecting against most forms of dirt, minerals and grime.
