on-line coated self-cleaning glass with photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties

Typical Use:

perfect choice for situations where cleaning is difficult or costly, such as high-rise buildings, glass roof structures, conservatories and atria, or in housing for use by elderly residents

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: thin film of titanium dioxide approximately 15 nanometers thick
Reason for Inclusion:

"Pilkington Activ™ is based on a thin film of titanium dioxide rather than particles of titanium dioxide and the film is approximately 15 nanometres thick. Whilst falling under the broad definition of nanotechnology we feel it is best referred to as a development of thin film technology." (see FAQ link under related information)
