Sloan has found a way to meet the rising demand for more hygienic fixtures while making them easier to clean.
SloanTec is a unique and proprietary glaze that imparts permanent hydrophobic (water-repellent) and oleophobic (oil-repellent) properties to vitreous china. 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. SloanTec glaze not only repels liquids, it also inhibits the growth of germs and bacteria, making the fixture easier to clean and keeping it cleaner longer. Please see the video on our homepage to show a demonstration of the features of this hydrophobic glaze.
