SCHOTT Debuts Atmosfire™ Dry Wiper Cleaning Sponge for ROBAX® Glass-Ceramic

• Cleans without scratching glass-ceramic panels in fireplaces and stoves
• First product of its kind that requires no chemical cleaning fluids
March 3, 2011 (at the Hearth, Patio & Barbeque Expo in Salt Lake City, UT) – SCHOTT Home Tech, a division of SCHOTT North America, Inc., unveiled the Atmosfire™ Dry Wiper, a cleaning pad developed specifically for ROBAX® glass-ceramic viewing windows in fireplaces and stoves. The ergonomically shaped sponge features a textured surface that is tough enough to remove soot and dirt without chemical cleaning fluids or scratching the glass’ surface.

The Atmosfire Dry Wiper will be displayed at the Hearth, Patio and Barbeque Expo 2011 at SCHOTT Home Tech’s booth #2633.

“Our research showed that customers’ number one concern about fireplace glass is its cleanability,” said Karen Elder, Marketing Manger of SCHOTT Home Tech. “We wanted to create a tool to help safely and easily clean ROBAX glass-ceramic panels without the risk of scratching. The Atmosfire Dry Wiper gives hearth and stove dealers a product they can offer their customers to address their biggest concern and help them avoid the messy alternative of cleaning up dirt and ash with sopping wet newspaper.”

SCHOTT worked with OSCAR WEIL GmbH to develop, test and approve the Atmosfire Dry Wiper. Fireplace owners can clean cold ROBAX glass ceramic panels by wiping the dirty or sooty surface of the panel with the rough side of the Atmosfire Dry Wiper. The sponge can then be cleaned and reused simply by knocking off the soot. Using the Atmosfire Dry Wiper before or after every fireplace or stove firing ensures a clear view of a warm & safe fire for years to come.
