The Latest Antimicrobial Glaze for Commercial China Fixtures

The latest antimicrobial technology for commercial china fixtures is here! Introducing: SloanTec™ Hydrophobic Antimicrobial Glaze by Sloan. Sloan has developed the answer to the two major questions that business owners and facility managers have when it comes to their restroom fixtures:

Question 1: “How can I lengthen the lifespan of the fixtures in my facility?”
Question 2: “How can I keep the fixtures in my facility restrooms cleaner?”
The Answer: SloanTec™ Hydrophobic Antimicrobial Glaze. Fixtures with SloanTec™ Glaze can stand up to the harsh demands of high-traffic commercial environments. The glaze will also lengthen the lifespan of commercial fixtures like toilets, sinks, and urinals, and help keep fixtures hygienic with less maintenance required.


What Is SLOANTec Glaze™ and How Is It Applied?

SloanTec Hydrophobic Antimicrobial Glaze

SloanTec™ Glaze is a liquid and oil repellent coating that can be specified to any vitreous china Sloan fixture. This includes all sinks, toilets, and urinals. SloanTec™ Glaze repels liquids, resists the adhesion of solid waste and it also inhibits the growth of germs and bacteria. This makes cleaning fixtures with this glaze easier while keeping the fixtures cleaner for a longer period of time.

Sloan says, “Unlike competitors’ glazes, which rely on a smooth surface that can be scratched, SloanTec™ glaze physically changes the surface of vitreous china at a nanoscale level.”

Read on to see how SloanTec™ Glaze holds up to competitors’ antimicrobial sink and antimicrobial toilet glazes.


Surface Aging Tests

Sloan conducted a series of tests to artificially age the surface of fixtures with SloanTec™ Glaze versus Fixtures without SloanTec™ Glaze.

Sloan Soil Removal Comparison

In the test, sample surfaces were exposed to a variety of harsh chemicals like hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acids, both of which are found in toilet bowl cleaners and commercial brand cleaners. The sample surfaces where were exposed to these chemicals at 140 degrees Fahrenheit for two days. After that they each went through 5,000 cycles of abrasive scrubbing.

The image below illustrates how well SloanTec™ Glazed fixtures held up after the test, performing at least 45% better than either competitor glaze and 65% better than conventional glaze.
