Self-cleaning glass dislikes dirt.
Pilkington Activ™ is probably the best known and most successful self-cleaning façade glass. It is the first glass worldwide with the dual-active self-cleaning effect. It only needs UV light and rain. The special Activ™ glass surface on the outer side reacts with the ultraviolet rays disintegrating organic dirt deposits – and will simply be washed off by the next rainfall.
Pilkington Activ™ minimises considerably the cleaning frequency of outer glass surfaces, thus reducing efforts and costs. It is highly suitable for inaccessible roof-glazing or winter gardens. In particular architects, façade engineers, contractors and facility managers are impressed of the possibilities offered by this glass.
