What is Self-cleaning Glass?

Self-cleaning glass is exactly as the name suggests - glass that keeps itself clean. It uses a photocatalytic process whereby organic dirt is broken down by daylight and is then washed away by rain.

Long described as an impossible dream, self-cleaning glass is now a reality. After years of research and development Pilkington introduced the Pilkington Activ™ range of products - the world's first self-cleaning glass.

The range is environmentally friendly and very easy to maintain. It has products which combine both self-cleaning and solar control properties, making them highly desirable amongst home-owners looking for the ultimate in glass solutions.
