Pilkington Activ™ Self-Cleaning Glass

Pilkington made a significant step in the glass industry with the development of Pilkington Activ™, the first dual-action self-cleaning glass. The unique dual-action of the Pilkington Activ™ coating uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from dirt, giving not only the practical benefit of less cleaning, but also clearer, better-looking windows.


Self-Cleaning Glass

Pilkington Activ™ is applied to float glass via on-line chemical vapor deposition, it is an integral part of one surface of the glass, and lasts the entire life of the glass. Pilkington Activ™ uses daylight which is abundant even on cloudy days to keep windows clean with a two-step process.

  • Pilkington Activ™ loosens dirt, and gradually breaks down organic residue with a special self-cleaning surface that uses energy from daylight.

  • When it rains, the water sheets off the Pilkington Activ™ surface, removing dust particles and inorganic dirt so windows dry without spots and streaks. Under most conditions, natural rain is sufficient to keep the window clean. And in dry weather, a quick spray with the house will achieve the same results. Pilkington Activ™ dramatically reduces window cleaning, providing crisp, clear views.
