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
