EzyClean repels dirt and grime

Save time and repel dirt, soap and grime with Metro's EzyClean Technology.  Water will simply bead off the glass surface, resulting in cleaning time being significantly reduced.  And it also makes cleaning simple, only requiring the use of water and a mild detergent or microfibre cloth.

The EzyClean coating is applied at our manufacturing plants, Metro's unique EzyClean Technology provides a protective coating that creates a long lasting, invisible shield on your glass surfaces, and comes with a 10 year warranty. (Note it cannot be applied to glass that is already installed).

Comparison of glass with Metro EzyClean

Suitable for

Metro's EzyClean Technology can be applied to glass showers, balustrades, splashbacks, it can also be applied to ceramic digital print surfaces.

EzyClean can be applied to all types of smooth glass, including annealed or tempered glass. For tempered glass, the coating is applied after the tempering process.

How EzyClean works

EzyClean is an optically clear protective coating that chemically bonds to the glass surface, creating a non-stick barrier resistant to corrosion, etching, and staining. However, while cleaning is made easier and less frequent, the need to clean is not eliminated. Treated glass becomes both hydrophobic and oleophobic (water and oil repellent) protecting against most forms of dirt and grime. The EzyClean molecule is highly resistant to chemical breakdown by UV light giving it long term stability. This protection thereby reduces staining and etching that often forms on shower recesses, kitchen splash-backs, balustrades, railings, curtain walls, and other areas where glass is subjected to harsh conditions. EzyClean eliminates the need to use harsh and often toxic cleaners. In all but the hardest water areas, all that is needed to keep the surface clean is a simple wipe with a damp microfiber cloth and a mild detergent.

Why EzyClean is unique

Most current easy clean coatings are either not oleophobic, or only moderately (and temporarily) so. EzyClean differs such that as with being water repellant, it will remain oil repellent for over 10 years with a single application. Because of these properties, EzyClean repels almost all known stains and contaminants that are likely to soil, stain, or etch a glass substrate.

Recommended cleaning instructions

EzyClean makes cleaning easier and less frequent; however, it is recommended that the glass is cleaned regularly post application. Failure to follow the recommended cleaning instructions may result in damage to the coating and void the warranty.

Once a week or as needed for build-up, wipe down the glass with a microfibre cloth dampened with white vinegar and a drop of non-abrasive liquid soap (hand, body, or dish). Safe, commonly used brands include Fairy or Morning Fresh. Rinse and dry.

Tip: For best results, wipe down the glass after each use with a good-quality squeegee. This will reduce mineral spotting, keeping the glass cleaner between cleans.  To follow is a list that have been tested for compatibility with the Ezy Clean Coating:

  • SprayWay (or other alcohol-based foaming cleaners)

  • Scrubbing Bubbles (or other automatic leave-to-dry daily shower cleaners)

  • 7th Generation, Dawn (or other mild eco-friendly cleaners)

  • CLR (Calcium Lime Rust)

  • Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (when damp)

  • Windex (Standard)

It should be noted that with any cleaner, a thorough rinse with clean water should follow immediately.

Glass shower screens

A quick clean once a week or as required using water and a mild detergent* with a sponge or a good quality microfiber cloth, will remove soap scum and grime from the glass. The use of a high quality professional grade squeegee (such as Ettore or Pulex) may be used to dry the glass**, however it is not a necessity.

Balstrades, pool fencing, mirrors and splashbacks

Using a mild detergent* and water, wash the glass with a sponge/mop or damp good quality microfiber cloth, and dry the glass** with a high quality professional grade squeegee (such as Ettore or Pulex). For best results clean the glass in the shade to prevent streaking. In areas prone to salt or dust build-up rinse off excess contaminants with a hose using fresh water before cleaning (failure to remove these abrasive contaminants may damage the coating).


Do not to use any rough, gritty, highly acidic, alkaline or abrasive cleaners such as Comet (powder), Ajax, or cerium oxide as they may damage the protective coating. Cleaners like these damage or polish back the actual substrate of the surface. They are not required or recommended for use on EzyClean treated surfaces. In areas with hard or bore water, mineral deposits such as lime and calcium may build up on the protective coating and not be easily removed with a mild detergent*. A solution of white vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 4 parts water) will need to be used occasionally to dissolve these deposits. If the lime scale is still proving difficult to remove use a more concentrated vinegar solution. Allow the vinegar solution to sit on the surface for 10-15 minutes to help dissolve lime deposits before cleaning as their abrasive nature may damage the coating.

Tips for extreme hard water conditions

Around the world there are some unique locations which have extremely harsh conditions. In these harshest of water environments, EzyClean is a great choice. Simply put if you didn't have the EzyClean protection, the glass may have to be restored to bring back the clarity or even replaced in as little as one year. New Orleans, Louisiana, some European countries, and Western Australia are examples of areas with very high mineral concentrations. Being so robust, the EzyClean coating is a great option in these conditions. It promotes great looking glass, but it takes a little more work due to these specific environmental conditions. In such environments minerals are so prevalent in the water that they can still create a build-up on the EzyClean coating. However, even over a very long time the minerals are not damaging the glass, although it can become difficult to remove. PCT Global recommends using the vinegar/water solution (listed above) every week or so as a cleaning option to reduce this build up on the surface, rather than allowing the build up to continue over a long period of time.

* A mild detergent such as dish washing liquid at a 0.5% solution 5g to a litre of fresh water is recommended.

** Do not use a squeegee on dry glass as this may damage the coating over time.

Product warranty

EzyClean comes standard with a 10 year performance warranty for professional application (this covers factory, OEM and certified applicators). The surface will remain easy clean for 10 years, the glass will only need to be cleaned periodically and will never require a booster product as long as the maintenance instructions are followed.

EzyClean customers will not need to use expensive booster products to maintain the warranty, this is unlike some competitor coatings that must be regularly maintained using proprietary cleaning products that reapply a thin film of the original product to regain performance and maintain warranty.
