Pilkington Self-Cleaning Glass: Marketing FAQs

Find all the marketing related questions and answers here.

1

Does the unit come with the logo on or does the installer have to apply it?

We encourage IGU manufacturers that all Pilkington Activ™ units should have the logo label with installer and consumer instructions applied by the IGU manufacturer.

2

Are there still Pilkington Activ™ partners?

No the partner arrangement was for the launch period only, which ended on 31st March 2003. We now encourage installers to go onto the Pilkington Activ™ supplier finder.

3

I have some literature which refers to a hologram?

This was used during the launch period and has now been withdrawn.

4

How do I pronounce the brand name?

The product name is pronounced Active, not Acteev.

5

How do I get my company on the Pilkington Activ™ installer finder?

Firstly you need to be an installer, trade suppliers aren't eligible (however we are keen that their installer customers are on the site). There is then a simple form that needs to be completed. Copies are available from pilkingtonactiv@respond.uk.com or from the helpline on 01744 692000. You will also be able to have a hyperlink to your own website if you wish.

6

Will IGU samples combined with Pilkington K Glass™ be available?

You should obtain any samples you require from your IGU supplier. It is recommended that samples are used for appearance purposes only. This is because Pilkington Activ™ needs 5-7 days exposure to UV light to charge the coating initially and regular exposure afterwards. This means that samples kept in salesmen's cars for example would not properly demonstrate the self-cleaning characteristics of the product.
