    Wonder if it copes with 100% immersion, might be worth offering to run a test of some sort.

    You must be loaded.....£224.95 a litre.
    Liquid Gold indeed....;)
    Keep us posted....maybe you could do a quicker test within a fresh water tank with 2 pieces of glass....one with the application, one without.
    Cheers

    Perhaps for a real test it you should coat half the aquarium glass.

    You have a point....I have a kitchen and bathroom that has glass panels instead of tiles...so could well be worth purchasing some.

    No, they won't. It claims to not interfere with gas exchange, not change it. The difference in conditions, CO2 to say the least, is huge.

    What I can imagine is that it may be useful on slow growing plants like anubius that tend to algae up. Faster growers would do well with no algae on the leaves but would lose the coating as they grow.

    sound good for people that live in very hard water areas and have glass shower panels, also around the taps to stop lime scale build up............................. I just though maybe take the water out of the toilet bowl and use this, you might never have to clean it again? ;)

    It reminds me of the Alec Guinness film "The Man in the White Suit." He invents a cloth that never gets dirty but then has the whole establishment and unions trying to bring him down because it will put so many people out of work.

    Looking at the manufacturer's claims on liquid glass it potentially has hundreds of uses. If I had some the firsts things I would use it on would be:
    Aquarium, obviously, including the inside of all the hoses and glass ware
    Glasses and sunglasses
    Car window screen
    Toilet, anything that helps with that is a plus
    Ipad, mobile phone
    Carpet
    Chairs
    Bathroom tiles
    Children
    Husband
    Car
