21 July 2009
Pilkington’s high performance glass, Pilkington Activ Suncool™, which brings together the self-cleaning properties of Pilkington Activ™ and the solar control properties of Pilkington Suncool™, has added two new performance features to the revolutionary glazing range. With the new additions, Pilkington Activ Suncool™ 66/33 and Pilkington Activ Suncool™ 50/25, all Pilkington Suncool™ products are now available with self-cleaning properties. As a result, the glass manufacturer now offers the widest range of self-cleaning solar control products on the market.
Pilkington's high performance glass, Pilkington Activ Suncool™,  was used on the iconic Havila building in Norway

Supplied as an Insulating Glass Unit, Pilkington Activ Suncool™ uses the innovative self-cleaning coating Pilkington Activ™ on the external surface of the front pane of the glass, and the high performance Pilkington Suncool™ coating for the internal surface. As well as combining revolutionary glazing technology, Pilkington Activ Suncool™ is available in a range of performances and appearances to suit a wide variety of applications.

The two new performance choices, Pilkington Activ Suncool™ 66/33 and Pilkington Activ Suncool™ 50/25, offer high performance solar protection with maximum selectivity. With all products being available with self-cleaning properties, the Pilkington Suncool™ range is now complete.

Phil Savage, Commercial Contracts Sales Manager, Pilkington, said: “Pilkington Suncool™ is suitable for almost any commercial application, it offers various levels of light transmission, solar radiation and alternative colours for the ultimate in design freedom.  The additional benefit of Pilkington Activ™ is proving particularly useful in situations where cleaning would be difficult or costly. All existing Pilkington Suncool™ products are now available with the added benefit of self-cleaning performance and we are proud to offer the most comprehensive portfolio of self-cleaning, solar control products on the market.”

Pilkington Activ™ is the world’s first self-cleaning glass which has revolutionised the way glass is used in commercial and public properties. The unique dual-action coating of Pilkington Activ™ first uses daylight to break down organic dirt, and then it uses rain to wash any loosened dirt, giving the benefit of less cleaning and clearer, better-looking glass.

Pilkington Suncool™ is a range of superior solar control products with high visible light transmittance and low emissivity, designed to keep interiors bright whilst keeping them cool.
