Keep Windows Clean with Pilkington Self-cleaning Glass

If the thought of spending endless hours cleaning windows puts you off building a new conservatory or installing skylights, then Pilkington self-cleaning glass is precisely what you need.

Long described as an impossible dream, self-cleaning glass is now a reality in the form of our Pilkington Activ™ range.Suitable for almost all exterior glazing situations the range comprises of Pilkington Activ™ Clear, Blue or Bronze and Pilkington Activ SunShade™ Neutral or Blue– each with its own unique and shared benefits from self-cleaning to solar control properties .

Glass in the Pilkington Activ™ range has a unique dual-action coating which uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from dirt, giving not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, better-looking windows all year round.

The Pilkington Activ™ Range: A Two Step Cleaning Process

The first stage of the cleaning process is “photocatalytic”. In this stage the coating reacts with daylight to break down organic dirt.

The second stage is “hydrophilic”. Here, instead of forming droplets, rainwater hits the glass and spreads evenly, running off in a “sheet” and taking the loosened dirt with it.

Greatly reducing the maintenance normally involved with glazing, this process means that you could save on window cleaning bills, and what could be better than cleaner windows – especially when it takes less effort?
