Pilkington Activ™ Blue

Pyrolytic on-line coated self-cleaning body-tinted solar control glass

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 color. Its surface #1 self-cleaning coating has photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties. The unique blue color helps to keep internal temperatures cool while 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 Energy Advantage™ in an insulating glass unit.


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


  • Self-cleaning properties reduce the need for manual cleaning, saving water and eliminating potentially harmful run-off from expensive detergents, also increasing personal safety.
  • Additional medium performance solar control properties, reducing solar heat entering the building, enhancing comfort and reducing the need for cooling the building.
  • Attractive blue color of the glass is perfect for roof glazing, enhancing the view from inside to outside.
  • Good light transmission.
  • Low exterior reflection, improving aesthetics of the building.
  • Works even on cloudy days and during the night.
  • Highly durable pyrolytic on-line coating that lasts the lifetime of the glass.
  • Can be laminated, tempered, bent and enamelled using standard techniques.
  • Can be used in its monolithic form or incorporated into insulating glass units (self-cleaning coating on surface #1), for instance with Pilkington Energy Advantage™ to offer additional thermal insulation properties.
  • Available in a range of different sizes and thicknesses (2.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6 mm).
  • Achieves Class A to EN1096 for coated glass.
  • Achieves ASTM C 1376 standard specification.
