We know that mirrors in the bathroom are essential. But we all have a doubt about the mirror. Whenever you take a shower, there will always be fog on the mirror. Even if the exhaust fan is turned on sometimes, there will be more or less fog. What should we do? Because of our doubts, anti-fog mirrors have appeared. As the name suggests, anti-fog mirrors prevent fogging of the lens. Today, let's talk about the classification and daily maintenance of mist free bathroom mirrors.
Mist free bathroom mirrors classification
1. The inorganic anti-fog mirror is attached with an anti-fog film on the surface of the glass to achieve the purpose of anti-fog.
2. The bathroom organic anti-fog mirror is divided into coated anti-fog lens, electric anti-fog lens and nano composite anti-fog lens. The coating anti-fog mirror and the electric anti-fog mirror are also called organic anti-fog mirrors or inorganic anti-fog mirrors. The former is in the form of preventing the fog layer by coating the micropores; the latter is by electric heating to increase the humidity of the mirror surface, and the mist rapidly evaporates, so that no fog layer is formed.
Classified according to principle
1. Coated anti-fog lens: It resists the fog layer by coating micropores. It can be sealed on mirror and glass. The anti-fog coating is usually rich in conductive materials ATO and silica. It constitutes a super-hydrophilic antistatic antibacterial agent with poor anti-fouling, anti-fog and anti-static effects.
2. Electrothermal anti-fog lens: The surface humidity is increased by electric heating. Then the fog layer is not formed. In addition, the fog is transpiration.
3. Nano-composite anti-fog lenses: Nano-glass anti-fog mirror films are linked to the firmness of glass through the use of physical and chemical principles. Because water cannot form water droplets on the exterior of the substrate, the surface of the glass treated has a hydrophilic effect. Then, the outer surface of the anti-fog mirror in the bathhouse forms a uniform water film to achieve anti-fog effect.
Precautions in daily maintenance
1. Ordinary mirrors should be placed in a boring place. Do not hang on the wall at random, and do not approach the washbasin.
2. Do not touch the mirror with wet hands, or use a damp cloth to clean the mirror, avoid adding moisture into the mirror, and make the mirror's light layer black.
3. The mirror should not be exposed to salt, grease and acids, which simply erode the mirror.
4. Use a soft dry cloth or cotton crepe to avoid the mirror surface being rubbed. Or use a soft cloth or emery cloth and rub with some oil or wax. You can also use a rag of milk to scrub the mirror and frame to make it clear and bright. In addition, it is not bad to use the oil-absorbing paper.
5. The frame should be wiped with fine soft cotton cloth or cotton and worsted silk to prevent the frame from rusting.
6. Before bathing, you can change the mirror surface and scrub with a dry cloth. A layer of soap film is formed on the mirror surface to prevent the mirror surface from being ambiguous, and astringent lotion or detergent can also be used.
The above is a summary of the classification of mist free bathroom mirrors
and matters needing attention during routine maintenance. Hope that can help you. However, it should be noted here that when we clean the mirror surface, we must use a rag to take a proper amount of washing gel to wipe the mirror surface, which can prevent water vapor from condensing on the mirror surface, and the anti-fog effect will be more obvious.
