Pilkington SaniTise™

Antimicrobial glass

Overview

Pilkington SaniTise™ is a transparent pyrolytic antimicrobial glass developed by NSG Group as a commitment to creating a healthier, cleaner and safer world.

How it works

The glass is produced with a TiO2 based pyrolytic coating deposited directly onto one glass surface. When exposed to UV radiation through natural daylight, the Pilkington SaniTise™ coating is activated.

It then reacts with water vapor within the atmosphere resulting in a photocatalytic process that inactivates (destroys) the viruses and bacteria on the coated glass surface.

Once Pilkington SaniTise™ reaches full activation, it will maintain its antimicrobial activity for enveloped viruses throughout its exposure to natural UV light. Even after the exposure to UV radiation has ceased, Pilkington SaniTise™ will maintain this behavior for at least a further two hours.

Features & Benefits

  • High quality glass with photocatalytic coating that can be used in a large variety of glazing applications

  • Highly resistant to corrosion, physical force and chemical damage

  • Can be toughened, laminated, bent and processed into insulating glass units

  • Available on multiple substrates in thicknesses ranging from 3.2mm to 10mm

  • Photocatalytic properties can be activated by natural sunlight

  • Once activated, Pilkington SaniTise™ retains photocatalytic activity throughout its exposure to natural UV light and for at least 2 hours in the dark
