Easy Clean Coating

3M™ Easy Clean Coatings (ECC) are clear, colourless treatments for ceramic fixtures, shower glass and glazed wall tiles that can be used to provide “Easy to Clean” surfaces.

These fluoropolymers react with the surfaces to create a low surface energy coating that is not easily wetted out with liquids. The treatment is stable and cannot be removed except by harsh abrasive cleaners or reagents, such as a very strong base.


  • Factory applied coating for ceramics that reduces the surface energy.


  • Soils and liquids tend to “slide off” surfaces treated with ECC-5000 coating, helping to prevent build-up and extend the time between cleanings.


  • Resists stains, particularly oil based stains
  • Easy to remove hard water deposits
  • No need for aggressive cleaners.

Typical Applications

  • Bathroom Tiles
  • Glass Shower Enclosures
  • Sanitary ware.
