Taylor Made Systems will preview its new self-cleaning glass technology for the marine industry."This is a major breakthrough in marine glass technology," said Mike Oathout, vice president, sales and marketing, for Taylor Made Systems.

"We are continuing to test and fine-tune the technology, and we plan to incorporate the self-cleaning process into a variety of new glass products during the next 12 months."

The self-cleaning glass is impregnated with special chemicals during the manufacturing process. These photocatalytic chemicals, which are activated by the sun’s ultraviolet rays, cause organic dirt to break down its adherence to the glass surface. At the same time, the integrated coating reduces the surface tension of water on the glass surface, causing it to "sheet" instead of forming separate droplets. Thus, the loosened dirt is easily washed off the glass surface by rain or spray.

"As the leading supplier of glass products for the marine industry, we are committed to staying at the leading edge of glass technology," said Oathout.

A member of the Taylor Made Group, Taylor Made Systems, based in Gloversville, New York, is the world’s largest manufacturer of marine glazing systems and the acknowledged leader in framed glass windshield technology for powerboats. Other marine product lines include hatches, doors, window systems, portlights, canvas boat tops and upholstered furniture. The company also supplies glass products for a variety of architectural, agricultural and industrial applications.

Headquartered in Gloversville, New York, the Taylor Made Group has 93 years of experience as one of the recreational marine industry’s largest, most diversified manufacturers and suppliers. Other companies in the Taylor Made Group include Taylor Made Environmental, Taylor Made Products, Taylorbrite LLC and SeaLand Technology, Inc.

Employing over 1,100 associates, its products are marketed through a worldwide distribution network.
