Bright and shiny surfaces like glass, ceramic, and steel are prone to accumulate dirt over time, and so will lose their luster. Glass especially is prone to grime and dirt accumulating over its surface and so will diminish the advantages of having glass as a material.
This is why there is a market for coatings and surface treatments that when applied, will prevent dirt from penetrating the surface or will speed up cleaning, and one leading brand in this space is EnduroShield.
In this article, we will review EnduroShield’s glass cleaner, and how it can be applied to glass walls, frameless pool fences, and the like.
EnduroShield Glass Treatment
EnduroShield is a nano-technology that creates an invisible shield on glass surfaces. It repels water, oil, and soap scum making cleaning easier than ever before. Simply spray the solution onto any smooth non-porous surface and watch as it beads up and repels away.

Benefits Of Enduroshield’s Glass Treatment Or Cleaner
- The thin coating prevents stain-causing molecules from staining the glass, like Chlorine from pools.
- Reduces the time it takes to clean glass panels.
- Prevents the build-up of stains, etches, and buildup of dirt on the glass itself.
- UV resistant so the coating doesn’t degrade due to sun exposure.
- Warranty: 3 years for DIY application and up to 10 years for professional application.
Enduroshield Glass Cleaner Overview
Normally, the glass would absorb many particles from the fluid it comes into contact with, for example in frameless glass pool fences, chlorine and other dirt can adsorb onto the glass panels which will lead to it losing its clear transparency.
However, with a thin coating formed when the glass treatment is applied to the glass, the glass underneath will be sealed and so counteracts the glass’ porous nature.
This will repel all sorts of stain-causing molecules and will cut cleaning time by preventing these molecules from absorbing into the surface.
EnduroShield Glass Cleaner comes in three different sizes:
- Small: $39.99

A competitor of EnduroShield in the glass stain-repellent market, PROSOCO has also formulated its own protective coating for glass, called “Strippable Masking”.
Its features are largely similar to EnduroShield’s glass treatment, in that both make the glass surface easier to clean and prevent stains from occurring, the difference between the two boils down to the different available sizes sold and how much surface area can be covered per milliliter of the treatment compound.
PROSOCO only being able to cover 0.0594 sq. ft per mL compared to EnduroShield’s 0.688 sq. ft per mL.
- More efficient if you have a large surface area of glass that you need to coat.
