Self Cleaning Glass

The Pilkingtons Activ™ Range is the worlds first true Self Cleaning Glass. It has 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.

It also spreads water evenly over it's surface so that it dries off faster leaving the glass clean and with reduced streaks. This specialist glass only costs marginally more than normal toughened glass.

Pilkingtons Activ Self Cleaning Glass is not like Easy clean glass that just makes it easier to clean your glass, it actually uses the forces of nature to maintain a cleaner and clearer appearance. Since no-one enjoys cleaning windows, the coating on the glass actually helps to dramatically reduce the dirt build up and cleaning required. As the sun heats up the coating on the glass it lifts off the dirt, which is then washed away when it rains, or with a quick spray of water. Water spreads evenly on the glass when it rains, resulting in the water drying quickly and leaving no streaks.
