EnduroShield coated glass has been installed at the Aerospace Research Centre in Coventry, UK to provide protection as well as reduce ongoing maintenance.

The £30 million Aerospace Research Centre is a ground-breaking research facility set on 100 acres of beautifully landscaped parklands in Ansty Park, Coventry. The Aerospace Research Centre is part of three developments established on behalf of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), and will support manufacturing development, and industrial aerospace design and research.

The 9100sqm state-of-the-art landmark facility draws on the collaborative expertise of some of the biggest names in architecture, construction, international property, and manufacturing including EnduroShield, which has contributed its easy clean glass surface treatment to the development.

EnduroShield's easy clean surface treatment was chosen as part of the bespoke design to protect glass surfaces and reduce ongoing maintenance well into the future. The coated glass will ensure protection from staining, etching and UV degradation for more than 10 years.

The EnduroShield coated glass used in the Aerospace Research Centre construction was produced by Ravens by Glass for Saint Gobain Glass (UK), a world-leading glass manufacturer. The EnduroShield partnership enables the glass manufacturer to provide a sustainable solution that meets the growing demand for economical and time-efficient materials.

EnduroShield easy clean surface treatment for glass chemically bonds to the glass substrate, transforming it into a high performance hydrophobic surface, which will protect against staining, and reduce the effort and frequency of maintenance.
