How does Pilkington SaniTise™ work?

The glass uses a durable on-line coating deposited directly onto the glass surface during its manufacturing process.

The Pilkington SaniTise™ antimicrobial coating is activated when exposed to UV radiation from natural daylight or artificial UV irradiation devices and works in 2 stages:

Stage 1 - The coating reacts with water vapour within the air, in a photocatalytic process that produces reactive oxygen species.

Stage 2 - These reactive oxygen species support the breakdown of organic species and help to provide antimicrobial properties and activity against enveloped viruses on the glass surface.
