Introducing Liquid Glass Shield Polish

The Perfect Solution for Your Vehicles’ Bodywork

Liquid Glass Shield are very proud to announce the introduction of our New, Liquid Glass Shield Polish. Formulated, specifically, to protect the bodywork of your vehicle, we know that you’re going to love the ease of application.

The great thing about this all new formulation is that you apply it in the same way as a traditional car polish.  You apply an amount to a microfibre cloth, wipe it on to the bodywork and make sure that you coat evenly.  You’ll see a residue that’s left on the bodywork and so, using a clean microfibre cloth, you simply buff this off to leave a fantastic shine.

The best news is that the Liquid Glass Shield Polish ensures that the protective coating is evenly applied over the bodywork.

Obviously, you need to follow a methodical process to cover the whole vehicle but you’ll be left with a whole host of fabulous benefits;

You’ll get a reduction in the build up of dirt on your vehicle – You won’t need to clean it as often.

Your vehicle will be far easier to clean when it is dirty – In fact, when it rains, you’ll notice a ‘self-cleaning’ effect. But when it does need cleaning, you’ll be able to to do so with little effort and minimal, if any, detergent.  Try it with just warm water and a cloth.  You’ll be very surprised.

You get that fantastic ‘Just waxed’ look – Every time you wash your car!  (Just re-treat, periodically, with Liquid Glass Shield Polish)

Protect the paintwork and lacquer on your vehicle – Bird droppings won’t ‘eat in to’ the lacquer or paintwork – and you can remove them, so easily (they often, simply, wash away in the rain).

The protective coating will reduce the incidence of light abrasions in the paintwork/lacquer – Helping to keep your vehicles’ paintwork in tip-top condition.

In addition to this, the Liquid Glass Shield Polish formulation has been made with a light cutting compound, so, you will also notice a reduction in hairline abrasions in the paintwork.

Applying Liquid Glass Shield Polish

See just how easy it is to apply Liquid Glass Shield Polish in the following video:

Why Liquid Glass Shield Polish?

Vehicles tend to get treated with Liquid Glass Shield in the open air and one of the slight challenges with our standard Hard Surface Formulation is that it evaporate very quickly in the open air.

If you’re not careful with the application, this could result in the protective coating being a little uneven.  Whilst this isn’t noticeable, visibly, the protective qualities could be variable across the bodywork of the car.

With Liquid Glass Shield Polish, you simply get a beautifully even protective coating that allows you to benefit from all of the benefits that Liquid Glass Shield has to offer. Click here to buy your Liquid Glass Shield Polish, now.

Thermal bridge: what it is and how to solve and eliminate it.

The thermal bridge is nothing more than a local area of ​​the thermal envelope, in which there is a discontinuity such that the flow of heat between the inside and the outside is different, almost always greater than the rest of the structures, consequently causing of Cold Points.

The causes can be different, ranging from constructive discontinuities, when using heterogeneous materials, to geometric discontinuity, both easily found at the corners, between the wall and floor or between wall and window frames, but not only!

Often a corner pillar thermal bridge is evident, in beams and much more frequently near balconies, windows or window sills, a sore point is that as the years go by, this anomaly can affect both the performance and durability of the materials used.

The main problem that derives from this is of course the thermal dispersion from inside the inhabited area to the outside, with consequent formation of thermal bridges mildew and condensation, the humidity present in the rooms, meeting a surface with lower temperature, changes in status , or turns into water, thus giving rise to condensation. Not only molds develop on the surface of the walls, but especially bacteria, which represent not only aesthetic damage, but mainly for health and from a hygienic point of view, also proliferate.

Without the thermal bridges mold and condense goodbye!

Thermal bridges must absolutely be eliminated if we want to obtain a valid energy efficiency from a building, both from the point of view of comfort and from the economic point of view.

In order to cope with this problem, it is important to take into account the calculation of linear thermal bridges, ie those that involve curbs, beams, pillars, window sills and spacers in the windows, we mean the relationship between the increase of the thermal flow and the product between the length of the thermal bridge and the difference in temperature between the environments separated by the structure being analyzed.

Equally important is the calculation of flat thermal bridges, a method that is applicable to some types of existing housing; the thermal exchange through bridges, once was determined in a flat-rate manner, according to some formulas, today this procedure has been replaced by the obligation to calculate thermal bridges only in an analytical and detailed way.

Silicone Dioxide facts

People often ask us how safe Liquid Glass Shield is.  The chemical name for the main constituent of our product is Silicon Dioxide and the chemical symbol is SiO2 and it is, in fact, classified as a food additive.  Yes it’s true; Liquid Glass Shield is made from Silcion Dioxide and you do, indeed, find Silicon Dioxide in food.

This means that it’s completely safe, of course. Not only in applications where it comes into contact with food but in food, itself.  However, we wouldn’t advocate adding Liquid Glass Shield to food under any circumstances as this is done using Silicon Dioxide in a different form.

Here are some facts about Silicon Dioxide in food that you may find very interesting.

Our bodies need Silicon Dioxide.

  • Silicon Dioxide is very important for the normal development of bones and it’s also necessary to maintain healthy bone, joints, skin, hair and nails.
  • Silicon (the element) occurs naturally in foods in the form of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Silicon is never present in its original or free form, and always occurs as silicon dioxide (or silica) in food.
  • Silicon is classed as a Trace Mineral and unlike other minerals it’s only needed in minimal amounts to maintain health. Because the body’s requirement is very small a Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) hasn’t been specified but experts do suggest a daily intake in the range of 20-30 mg is needed to stay healthy.
  • Plant based foods tend to contain higher amounts of Silicon Dioxide and cereals contain particularly high levels. By contrast, foods derived from animal sources contain very little.

Silicon Dioxide in Drinks

Silicon Dioxide also occurs naturally in drinking water in the form of silicic acid. Interestingly, water purification techniques have been developed to extract silicon from the water but they’ve not been implemented due to the numerous health benefits.  Not all water is the same, though; Soft water is a poor source of SiO2, whereas hard water is rich in the mineral.

Of course, beverages that contain water will also contain SiO2 including beer, coffee & tea to name just a few.

Silicon Dioxide As a Food Additive

SiO2 is used fairly extensively in powdered foods, is added to many nutritional health food supplements and processed foods and it’s an important component in many pharmaceutical tablets.Why is it added to food externally?  Well, the main reason (other than the nutritional requirement) is that Silicon Dioxide functions as an anti-caking agent, preventing the ingredients from binding together.

Health Benefits of Silicon Dioxide

We’ve already mentioned the important role that SiO2 plays with regard to the development of bones, so it becomes necessary to include silicon food sources in our diet. In order to maintain healthy strong bones and joints, silicon dioxide in foods is very much essential.

A deficiency in SiO2 can lead to osteoarthritis and arthritis and studies on rats have indicated that a diet lacking in SiO2 can have a negative impact on bone formation and tooth structure.

Another important health benefit of silicon is that it minimizes the effect that aluminium has on the body, thereby inhibiting Alzheimer’s disease. Silicon supports joint function and also plays a crucial role for maintaining healthy skin.

Food Safety

When it comes to adding anything to food, safety is the primary concern.  As with most minerals, whilst small amounts are essential to our health, an excess can have the opposite effect.  As a result, the content of Silicon Dioxide in food should not exceed 2% of the foods’ weight.

In addition to this, it’s very Important that the SiO2 used as a food additive is made through a process known as Vapour Phase Hydrolysis to ensure that the particle size is sufficiently small. Any other manufacturing process may well result in the particle size exceeding the safety norms.

Amazingly, Silicon Dioxide has a whole host of other uses ….. but we’ll go into those in another post.
