Pilkington Activ™ Clear - overview

Pilkington Activ™ Clear is an on-line coated self-cleaning glass with photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties.


Pilkington Activ™ Clear is the perfect choice for situations where cleaning is difficult or costly, such as high-rise buildings, glass roof structures, conservatories and atria, or in housing for use by elderly residents. It is also ideal where good visibility is important, for example, in sports stadiums, commentary boxes, airports and external walkways.
