For over 40 years, Unelko has been a leading manufacturer of water repellents, surface treatments and protective coatings for the preservation, enhancement and “preventive cleaning” of glass, porcelain, ceramics, stainless steel and laminated plastic surfaces in homes and public buildings… and for improved visibility and operational safety of types of vehicles, aircraft and boats.

From Modest Beginnings to Global Distribution

Starting with a small laboratory and a new concept for glass care that led to patents for improved visibility & motoring safety, Unelko has grown dramatically.  Today’s Unelko Corporation is headquartered in a modern 65,000 sq. ft. (6050 sq. meters) office, manufacturing and warehouse complex on 3.8 acres (1.55 hectares) of prime industrial land in Scottsdale, Arizona.   Even its sister company, Unelko NV, rapidly outgrew its first location in Gavere, Belgium and is now headquartered in a new office and warehouse facility in Zingem, Belgium, from where it services the rapidly expanding European, North African and Middle Eastern markets for Unelko surface care products and technologies.

Major Breakthroughs in Surface Care

Following the sale of its world-famous Rain-X® business to Quaker State Corporation in 1997, Unelko did not rest on its laurels and formed the Unelko Group to focus on advanced surface care technologies that provide new, practical solutions to old problems.  As a result of this ongoing commitment to research & development, Unelko has new patents for user-friendly surface care technologies that are non-flammable, VOC-free, non-corrosive and non-toxic.

Because of their unique features and performance benefits, these new technologies clean and transform a broad range of hard surfaces into highly water, soil and stain repellent surfaces for easier next-time cleaning. When used as directed, Unelko’s advanced surface care products improve visibility & vehicular safety… and can literally cut in half the cost and time devoted to cleaning and surface care in vehicles, homes and public buildings… while keeping surfaces sparkling, like new.

Looking To the Future

Unelko has more multi-surface, multi-functional surface care technologies on the way.  While cleaning surfaces to remove everyday dirt, grim and surface-contact germs, these remarkable products simultaneously impart long-lasting – invisible – water, soil & stain repellent barrier coatings on which odor-causing bacteria, mold & mildew will not grow… and which dramatically reduce the adhesion and buildup of organic & inorganic soil for easier cleaning.


We promise to offer the most advanced, safest and easiest to use cleaning & surface care products possible.  We promise to provide value-added benefits with each product, and to refrain from exaggerating and/or falsifying their performance claims.


There’s a lot of science behind every Unelko product.  In fact, there is over 40 years of ongoing research & development in high-performance cleaners, water repellents and surface treatments; resulting in many international patents. With this investment and our pioneering of advanced surface care technologies, Unelko has become a leading resource for the preservation, enhancement and preventive cleaning of hard surfaces…worldwide! We document and describe our products based on the realities of weathering and soiling based on their actual performance…not on the basis of exaggeration that unfortunately characterizes the performance claims of other manufacturers.


Due to the sales potential of the hard surface cleaning/coating category, many companies have attempted to manufacture and offer products that guarantee or claim to leave a protective film or other coating on the surface. Some companies make highly exaggerated or outright false claims regarding the performance and/or longevity of their coating products and have attempted to justify some of the broad & unsubstantiated claims by charging excessive prices for them.

Our testing has proven that Glass Science® continues to offer the most advanced cleaning/coating technologies available at competitive prices compared to other products on the market. We urge customers to perform comparative testing on the available products including “durability” tests to verify some of the broad and “unsubstantiated” claims that are being made.

To our knowledge, there is no such thing as “self-cleaning” glass or other surfaces. There is no “permanent” coating yet available on the market that can stand up to the continued onslaught & abrasion from the constant re-soiling of dirt, grime, soap scum, mineral deposits and other contaminates without some periodic maintenance and/or re-application of the product. This can be from months to years depending upon the surface, application and use.

Glass Science continues to take a straight forward approach when marketing its products that is predicated on the fact that no matter how much you clean, surfaces are continually exposed to water, soil, grime, stains and other contaminates that build-up on the surface and require harsh chemicals and abrasives to remove. Traditional household chemicals can be harmful to surfaces, users and the environment. They contain “surfactants” which, if left on the surface, actually attract soil, grime and other contaminates.

Glass Science’s products clean shield and protect surfaces with nano-scale “barrier” coating technologies that protect the surface against the adhesion and build-up of water, soil & stains for easier cleaning and improved appearance. They are easy to use and keep surfaces sparkling clean & looking like new for years to come.

Our guarantee and goal is to make sure that customers are completely satisfied with their purchase of our products. We guarantee that our products meet the highest standards of quality, safety and performance.

Customer privacy is a top priority. We maintain the highest commitment to safeguarding your personal customer information.
