Glass protection films are physical films that are applied to the glass, primarily to stop scratching and damage to the glass itself. Common uses for protection films are on windows and glass that is facing externally, as this is where damage like scratching is common. They are also great for protecting your windows against vandalism.

Glass treatment coating is a treatment applied to the glass, designed to repel water and thus prevent stains, mold and salt etching. These coating are used generally for glass indoors, such as showers or glass kitchen surfaces, where scratches are less likely to occur.

The type of protection you will want to use will depend where the glass is and what it’s used for. For external windows, it is generally recommended to use a protection film. For interior glass surfaces, glass treatment coating will do the job.
