Also take a look at the post I did in my blog just a little while ago. It lists two famous buildings with pictures that had the NG1010 applied. And lists the architect that specified the use of this product. There is contact info for the USA company. The link to the blog is
I am talking with John from the USA on buildings that have been treated with the NG1010 and will be writing more about how the maintenance of these buildings is working out. Further I just learned today that Mark Tanner is beginning to work closely with the Nanovations USA so we will be getting a play by play on that as it progresses. Really cool stuff is going on now. So much I can’t relay it all here. Keep tuned to the Glass Smart blog.

I bought a sample a while ago and used it on my front windscreen, has worked very well.
Over the next few days when I get a spare minute I will do my shower with it see how it holds up. I am considering what to charge for shower door restoration as the hard water stain removal product they sell is amazing, it removed moderate staining with a light manual buff, I was very surprised at how effective it was.
As for application, there is a company in the area who uses rain x and tries to sell it to all external windows, I believe this is total overkill and would not offer it in that application, it is mainly best suited to windows in weather/sprinkler/salt and those kind of extremes where it would be advantageous imo.
Hoping everyone checks out the post I did on the NG1010. Most fascinating to me is the idea of a “nano” treatment which the picture illustrates very well. Here is the link. You will also find contact info at the bottom so you can ordor samples direct.
Simple answer. Do a side by side test of all products in question on the same plate of glass over six months to a year. Make sure that bad sprinkler head is perfectly aimed at the glass. You will have your answer. I have my opinion. But it is not as valuable!
Only problem for me is that I am in Perth, Australia. Most suppliers are on the other side of the country and charge $100+ for the product and $100+ for freight because they are classed as dangerous goods. As a small, young business it is hard to justify spending that kind of money on each product to test.
Plus the big names want more:
Endurosheild over here want $2000 to have access
Diamond fusion want $40,000 for access
I am fairly happy with NG1010 but then, have not experienced much else.
Yeh I avoided enduroshield as they wanted $1600 just for training,nanovations are great to deal with and have been around along time so you can trust the product works, when they don’t work they wouldn’t stay in business very long, one of my own showers is done in vitroglaze and the other is done with nanovations, I constantly have to clean the shower to prevent stains occurring on the coating which is hard to get off, I have to get the scrubbing pad and scrub it off, the nanovations I can leave for way longer and easily wipes off so far easier to clean and longer inbetween cleans , I do find vitro glaze works great for mirrors in a self cleaning capacity, it leaves a very slippery surface which is great for repelling dust etc so In situations where glass isn’t coming into contact with as much water as shower glass it works great, I’ll only ever use nanovations and great marketing point about made right here in Australia
