The Ultimate Self-cleaning Glass

Self-cleaning clear and blue glass - a world first from Pilkington

Pilkington Activ™ is the world's first self-cleaning glass. Its basically the same as conventional glass, except for a unique dual action coating. It works in two ways: First it uses daylight to break down organic dirt (such as bird droppings) and then it uses rain to wash the dirt away.
Pilkington Activ™ also dries off faster leaving the glass clean and with reduced streaks.

Pilkington Activ™ Neutral and Pilkington Activ™ Blue combine the benefits of self-cleaning with solar control performance, making it the perfect choice for hard to reach places that are difficult to clean, which also require solar control such as conservatory roofs.

Aspects of performance explained:

A measure of 38% is the amount of energy from the sun that gets through, which means 62% is blocked.

A measure of how well the material retains heat, the lower the figure the better it is.


•  Blocks around 60% of the heat from the sun with excellent light transmission
•  True self cleaning glass
•  Excellent thermal performance in winter - very low 'U' value
•  Self clean coating that lasts the lifetime of the glazing
•  Glass roof is much quieter than Polycarbonate in rain and hail
