|Go to Cardinal 10 Warranty Registration|
Cardinal 10 Surface Protection is a glass protection system that repels both water (hydrophobic) and oils (oleophobic). This creates a near permanent bond that can only be removed by abrasion and removal of the top layer of glass. Cardinal 10 is resistant to UV degradation. Exposure to UV rays does not cause a film to form, nor does it cause a breakdown in the coating.
Accelerated testing, performed to duplicate the effects of continuous cleaning and UV exposure of the coated surface for a 10 year period, concluded there was no noticeable degradation of the water and oil repelling properties of Cardinal 10. The coated surface should continue to perform well after the 10 year warranty period.
The manufacturer warrants that the Cardinal 10 Surface Protection will remain water repellent for a period of ten years from the date of the receipt provided by your installer. This warranty extends only to the original owner/end user and for personal household use only. This warranty is non-transferrable. Additional limitations may apply for commercial use.
Congratulations, the cleaning and maintaining of your shower has become much easier.
The manufacturer has tested and approved the following products as preferred cleaners for Cardinal 10 Surface Protection:
Visible streaking or swirling patterns may appear on the glass when the glass is steamed up. This is a normal occurrence and does not affect the performance of the surface protection. It is not visible when the shower is dry and not in use.
A mild detergent with a sponge works well. A micro fiber mitt/cloth with water works just as well and saves you money on cleaners. You can buy these in the cleaning isle of your supermarket.
Every two weeks to keep the glass looking like new.
No the coating is only 2 molecules thick and is invisible. There is nothing that will crack or discolor over time. It is unlike a lacquer or varnish.
No the product is practically permanent. It is unlike some products that are silicone based and wear off over a period of time.
No. The only way to remove the coating is by removing molecules of glass, such as scratching the glass or using a rough, gritty or abrasive cleaner. You can still use your harsh toxic cleaners, but why would you?
No. The coating is only two molecules thick and transparent, thus it does not change the appearance of the surface. If an abrasive was to be used, it would not be visible that where it was worn away. That area would, however, be harder to clean.
Accelerated testing was performed to simulate cleaning the treated surface for a 10 year period. The results revealed that after this time there were minimal or no change to the molecules structure.
