Long described as an impossible dream, self-cleaning glass is now a reality. After years of research and developmentleading glass manufacturer Pilkington has introduced the Pilkington Activ™ range of products. The range has products which combine both self-cleaning and solar control properties, making them highly desirable amongst homeowners looking for the ultimate in glass solutions.
Pilkington Activ™ Clear is the world’s first true self-cleaning glass. Essentially it is the same as conventional glass, except for a unique dual-action coating which works in two ways. First it uses UV rays to break down and loosen organic dirt (such as bird droppings) and then it uses rain to wash the dirt away.
Pilkington Activ™ Clear also dries off faster leaving the glass clean and with reduced streaks, which gives you beautifully clear views and makes it ideal for all the exterior glass surfaces in your home.
Pilkington Activ™ Blue and Pilkington Activ™ Bronze combine the benefits of the Pilkington Activ™ Clear coating on body tinted glass to provide some solar control performance to help keep the inside cooler. Pilkington Activ SunShade™ Neutral (formerly known as Pilkington Activ™ Neutral) and Pilkington Activ SunShade™ Blue offer enhanced solar control through the addition of the Pilkington SunShade™ coating on the inner pane of the glass. This make them the perfect choice for conservatory roofs and walls.
