Self Cleaning Glass

The Magic


Long described as an impossible dream, self-cleaning glass is now a reality.

Cleaning windows is a chore that most people would rather avoid, and self-cleaning glass sounds like an impossibility - much too good to be true. However, leading glass manufacturer Pilkington have invested years of research into this very area and have achieved a breakthrough.

They have developed and introduced the Pilkington Activ range of products, which includes glass with self-cleaning, solar and noise control properties. Use of this glass makes life so much more pleasurable, save you time and effort, reduce noise, eliminate glare from the sun, and also save you money due to the thermal insulation properties, keeping heat in or out as required.

A revolutionary photo-catalytic and hydrophilic coating that cleans in 2 steps

The unique dual-action self-cleaning coating is located on the external glass pane.

It has got photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties, and works in two stages:

Organic dirt fixes itself to the self-cleaning coating on the glass

(Stage 1) The coating reacts with natural daylight to break down and loosen organic dirt

(Stage 2) When it rains, instead of forming droplets, the water spreads evenly over the surface of the glass, forming a thin film and helping to wash away any dirt and reduce streaks.

During long dry spells the glass can be cleaned by simply hosing it down with clean water.
