Wouldn't it be great if you never had to clean the
windows in your house again? That's the promise of SunClean glass,
which is lined with a transparent coating that breaks down dirt (and
bird droppings) in the sun. When it rains or you spray the windows
with a hose, the remaining residue is supposed to wash away without
streaking. Available on a variety of window types for the home, the
SunClean technology also works on insulated glass that blocks
SunClean self-cleaning glass is a coated glass
product with photocatalytic and hydrophilic properties that combine
to result in windows that are easier to clean. The durable,
transparent coating on SunClean self-cleaning glass is applied to
hot glass during the formation process making it an integral part of
the outer glass surface.
The photocatalytic properties of the glass' coating are energized by
UV rays to help slowly break down and loosen organic dirt.
The hydrophilic properties cause water to sheet evenly over the
glass surface, instead of beading. This sheeting action helps to
flush the surface clean and to accelerate drying, leaving the glass
with minimal spotting and streaking.
SunClean self-cleaning glass can be provided in standard and
energy-saving low-E windows. SunClean glass is available to makers
of wood, vinyl and aluminum windows serving the new construction and
remodeling market. This allows SunClean glass to be one of the
exciting new options available to consumers in the spring 2002
