We introduced Pilkington Activ™
, our revolutionary coated glass, more than 10 years ago. When used in windows and conservatories, it is placed on the external surface of the glazing.
It has a dual action; when exposed to daylight the coating breaks down any organic dirt deposits such as bird droppings and tree sap (photocatalytic) and then when it rains the rain water washes the loosened dirt away leaving the windows with reduced streaking (hydrophilic).
It is available from window companies nationwide for all external glass areas of your home but is especially beneficial in hard to reach areas such as conservatory roofs, rooflights, inaccessible windows or just to save time and keep the large expanses of glass we love in our homes looking clean.
Note that, for Pilkington Activ™
to work, it must be possible for rainwater to reach the glazing so that it can wash the dirt away therefore it is not recommended where there is an overhang and water is unable to access the Pilkington Activ™
