Covalent Bonding Print E-mail

covalent-bondingCovalent Bonding is a chemical bonding characterized by the sharing of pairs of electrons with comparable electro negativity between atoms. These bonds usually represent some of the strongest bonding forces in nature of atoms at the molecular level. Covalent bonding can, for example, be observed in nature with reactive silica that can be found in high concentrations in water in areas with high volcanic activity or well water. Reactive silica may permanently bond with glass for example, making shower glass permanently hazy. Ultraclean Glass™ / Porcelain™ converter uses covalent bonding and so – unlike traditional coating products which rely on mere mechanical bonding with the surface and are easily removed with normal cleaning and use - the non-stick repellent effect can only be removed by destructive means that remove the entire surface of the glass itself.

 

The Ultraclean Glass™ / Porcelain™ CONVERTER bonds with its surface in a covalent manner, thus becoming an integral part of the glass or porcelain surface.

Due to this strong bonding force, the CONVERTER never peels, flakes or cracks.
