Sunclean™ Self-Cleaning Glass
Category: Glass and solar panels

SunClean Self-Cleaning Glass is a safe, easy, cost-effective solution for keeping commercial buildings looking great. Formulated with a proprietary coating that is activated by ultraviolet rays from the sun, it causes organic material to gradually decay and be rinsed away when it comes into contact with rainwater.

Typical Use:

ideal for skylights, sloped glazing, canopies and other hard to access areas

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: not reported
Reason for Inclusion:

Description of photocatalytic properties: "In addition to being both photocatalytic (the process that enables the glass to gradually decompose organic material when exposed to UV light) and hydrophilic (the process that causes water to flatten and spread out when it hits the surface), the TiO2 coating on SunClean glass is extremely durable, since it is fused to the glass substrate while it is molten, which creates a strong chemical bond."
