For over forty years, Unelko Corporation has been a leading manufacturer of water repellents, surface treatments and protective coatings for the preservation, enhancement and “preventive cleaning” of surfaces in homes, autos and public buildings.
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 Glass Science surface care products and technologies.
Major Breakthroughs in Surface Care
Unelko has been a pioneer in the glass and surface care industry since it was originally launched in 1973 with the invention of the globally distributed, Original Rain-X® line of automotive products for improved visibility & driving safety. This patented technology was a method for protecting hard surfaces and rendering them water repellent.
Following the sale of its world-famous Rain-X® and Repcon® businesses to Quaker State Corporation in 1997, Unelko did not rest on its laurels and focused 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 and patent-pending 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 can transform a broad range of hard & soft surfaces into highly water, soil and stain repellent surfaces for improved performance, appearance, reduced maintenance and easier cleaning! Glass Science’s advanced surface care products improve visibility & driving/flying/water navigation safety…and can literally cut in half the cost and time devoted to cleaning and surface care in autos, 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 in the form of dual-action and triple-action products that clean, shield against the adhesion & buildup of re-soiling, and protect surfaces against microbial growth in 1-step. While cleaning surfaces of everyday dirt, grime and the surface-contact germs contained therein; these remarkable products simultaneously impart long-lasting, invisible water, soil & stain repellent barrier coatings on which odor-causing bacteria, mold & mildew will not grow in-between regular cleaning…and which dramatically reduce the adhesion and buildup of organic & inorganic soil for easier next-time cleaning.
