Pilkington Activ Blue


This attractive blue glass combines dual-action, self-cleaning properties with solar control performance for a cooler internal environment. Pilkington Activ™ Blue is a revolutionary glass that is perfect for use in conservatories.

It uses daylight and rainwater to breakdown and wash away organic dirt from exterior surfaces, making it ideal for hard to reach places that are difficult to clean. Its unique blue colour also helps keep internal temperatures cool whilst still maintaining excellent light transmittance.

For optimum self-cleaning and thermal performance, combine Pilkington Activ™ Blue with any product from our Pilkington K Glass™ or Pilkington Optitherm™ ranges an Insulating Glass Unit.

Pilkington Activ™ Bronze will be available shortly. Please contact us for further details.
