Pilkington Activ™ (Blue/Bronze)

Pilkington Activ™ Blue

Pilkington Activ™ Blue - overview

Pilkington Activ™ Blue is an on-line coated body-tinted, self-cleaning and medium performance solar control glass, in an attractive blue colour. Its surface #1 self-cleaning coating has photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties. The unique blue colour helps to keep internal temperatures cool whilst still maintaining excellent light transmittance, low light reflection and high energy absorption. For optimum self-cleaning and thermal performance, Pilkington Activ™ Blue can be combined with Pilkington K Glass™, Pilkington Energy Advantage™ or Pilkington Optitherm™ in an insulating glass unit.


Specially designed for the optimum roof unit, Pilkington Activ™ Blue is perfect for use in conservatories and winter gardens. Its self-cleaning properties make it ideal for use in hard to reach places that are difficult to clean.
