Pilkington Activ

What is Pilkington Activ?

Pilkington Activ is normal glass with a special coating on the outside that has a unique dual action.

How can a glass clean itself?

Once the coating is exposed to daylight, it firstly breaks down any organic dirt deposits, such as bird droppings and tree sap, and when it rains the water washes the dirt away.

How long will the coating last?

The coating will not flake or discolour and has been proven to last as long as the glass itself.

Where can Pilkington Activ be used?

Activ glass can be installed in almost any exterior application, such as windows, conservatories and glass roofs. It is especially useful for inaccessible windows where organic dirt normally collects, such as skylights and conservatory roofs.

Pilkington Activ can be combined with other types of glass to produce a double-glazed sealed unit. Additionally, Pilkington Activ is available in toughened for increased safety and security.

Pilkington Activ is available in the following:

  • Activ Clear Slightly greater reflective quality than normal glass, with an attractive faint blue tint, giving a clearer, brighter appearance.
  • Activ Blue Attractive blue glass that combines solar control and self-cleaning properties, and yet allows good light transmittance.
  • Activ Neutral A neutral coloured glass that combines dual-action self-cleaning properties with collar control performance for a cooler environment.

Pilkington Activ glass must always be installed and maintained in accordance with Pilkington’s specialist Handling and Processing instructions.
