Appearance

Pilkington Activ™: clear and neutral. Pilkington Activ™ Blue incorporating solar control: Blue.

Performance

Available in 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10mm thicknesses, Pilkington Activ™ is suitable for almost every commercial and domestic application, proving particularly useful in situations where cleaning would be difficult or costly. It can be single glazed, or incorporated into an insulating glass unit, with the self-cleaning coating positioned on the outside of the building. It meets Class A to BS EN 1096-2.

Sitework

If Pilkington Activ™ is to be installed where rainwater will not reach it, for example, beneath an overhang, dirt deposits are less likely to be washed away. In such circumstances, windows may need to be hosed with water. The minimum recommended angle is 10ยบ from horizontal, so that the water can flow over the glass properly.

For glazing and framing, it is essential not to use silicone-based seals or lubricants, in both single glazed and insulated glass-unit applications. Approved products for weathersealing are available, consult manufacturer for details. During long, dry spells, glass may need to be hosed with water to replicate rainfall.
