RAVAK AntiCalc® – Protection for glass panels
An invisible shield against dirt and sediments
We want you to be satisfied not only at the time of purchase but for many years to come, which is why we are constantly working on technological innovations to prolong the lifetime and beauty of our products.
To preserve the functional and aesthetic properties of glass panels in the bathroom, we have developed a unique technology for protecting their surfaces from damage caused by water sediments.
With the exception of distilled water and rainwater, water always contains salts. Limescale deposits can be removed only with great difficulty. They create a chemical bond with the glass, which discolours over time. Common chemical agents are ineffective against limescale. Permanent damage can only be prevented by the patented RAVAK AntiCalc® glass protection technology, which RAVAK applies to its shower enclosures, doors and screens during the production process.
How does RAVAK AntiCalc® work?
RAVAK AntiCalc® technology makes glass hydrophobic; the glass surface becomes water repellent. Drops do not hold on the treated surface but run off so limescale deposits cannot form.
Smaller drops manage to stay on the surface and sediments remain. However, they do not chemically bind to the surface of the glass and can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
How long does RAVAK AntiCalc® last?
The RAVAK AntiCalc® water-repellent coating is resistant to cleaning products commonly used for windows and glass panels. However, its durability also depends on the composition of the water with which it comes into contact.
Generally, the RAVAK AntiCalc® layer lasts between 3 months and 2 years. However, the glass can be protected again after this time. For follow-up care at home, we have developed the special RAVAK AntiCalc Conditioner that ensures optimum protection of your glass for at least another ten years.
RAVAK AntiCalc® Conditioner
A helping hand against limescale. Renew the water-repellent effects of our technology at home. Warning: Although "anticalc" has become a household name, do not trust every "anticalc" product offered to you. Only the original RAVAK AntiCalc Conditioner, developed using patented technology protected in most countries of the world by a trademark, will keep your glass protected for a guaranteed 10 years.
How to take care of glass in the bathroom
You can clean your new bathroom equipment and glass with any universal detergent cleaner (we recommend RAVAK Cleaner), and once every three months or so restore the RAVAK AntiCalc® technology with RAVAK AntiCalc Conditioner.
Clean the glass carefully and degrease using a detergent (RAVAK Cleaner). Clean and dry the glass completely. On the inner side, use a dry cloth to apply RAVAK AntiCalc Conditioner and buff until dry.
The glass will regain its water-repellent properties and will require only standard care for the next approximately three months (depending on how hard your water is).
