Vitraglas® tank lining in Bradford White water heaters features powerful antimicrobial product protection to help prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on the tank lining.
Vitraglas® is an exclusive enamel tank lining that provides unsurpassed protection from the corrosive effects of water. Microban® antimicrobial technology provides additional product protection by helping to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on the surface of the tank lining. The enamel tank lining and protective features are effective for the lifetime of our reliable water heaters.
Vitraglas® tank lining with Microban® is uniquely formulated and applied to the water heater tank, head, base, and flue tube, and is then bonded to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600°F. An automatic spray application system maintains consistent thickness to produce a superior, durable, corrosion-resistant, and long-lasting tank lining. The unique compound structure allows the lining to expand and contract with the steel tank.
Bradford White created Vitraglas® and effectively set the standard for glass-lining protection. Since then, we’ve added key features like Microban® antimicrobial technology and improved the application of this exclusive formula to create the perfect tank lining. Today it’s included as standard equipment on nearly all Bradford White tank water heaters.
