Pilkington SaniTise™, a new coated glass product developed by the NSG Group, parent company of Pilkington UK, helps to reduce the transmission of microbes via surfaces in shared spaces and public transport.
Pilkington SaniTise™ is a transparent coated glass that’s activated through UV radiation. When the glass is exposed to UV light, its antimicrobial activity is significantly increased compared to using uncoated glass.
Pilkington SaniTise™ has a pyrolytic coating, which provides antimicrobial properties and acts against enveloped viruses on the glass surface.
The coated glass provides extra protection for any high-touch surfaces that are exposed to UV light.
The company says it’s suited for building façades in the commercial, healthcare, education, retail & hospitality sectors, as the insulating glass unit’s (IGU) interior surface on any exterior wall system. It’s also designed for use in all types of public transport such as buses, trains and passenger boats.
Pilkington SaniTise™ is available on multiple tints, and thicknesses. The durable pyrolytic on-line coating lasts the lifetime of the glass and can be toughened, laminated, bent or processed into insulating glass units using standard techniques.
The product is also compatible with harsh commercial grade cleaning products and is highly resistant to corrosion, mechanical and chemical damage.
