Self Cleaning Glass

A recent (2001 Pilkington Glass) innovation is so-called self-cleaning glass, aimed at building, automotive and other technical applications. A nanometre-scale coating of titanium dioxide on the outer surface of glass introduces two mechanisms which lead to the self-cleaning property. The first is a photo-catalytic effect, in which ultra-violet rays catalyse the breakdown of organic compounds on the window surface; the second is a hydrophilic effect in which water is attracted to the surface of the glass, forming a thin sheet which washes away the broken-down organic compounds

How Self-Cleaning Glass Works

External window cleaning and maintenance has been simplified by the abundance of glass cleaning agents on the market. However, these glass cleaning agents still require sufficient elbow grease to get your windows looking great - and can't even begin to rival the ease and effectiveness of self-cleaning glass

Laminated glass is manufactured by bonding two or more layers of glass together with layers of PVB or Rasin, under heat and pressure, to create a single sheet of glass. When broken, the PVB or Rasin interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded and prevents it from breaking apart. The interlayer can also give the glass a higher sound insulation rating.

There are several types of laminated glasses manufactured using different types of glass and interlayers which produce different results when broken. Laminated glass that is made up of annealed glass is normally used when safety is a concern, but tempering is not an option. Windshields are typically laminated glasses. When broken, the PVB or Rasin layer prevents the glass from breaking apart, creating a "spider web" cracking pattern.

Tempered laminated glass is designed to shatter into small pieces, preventing possible injury. When both pieces of glass are broken it produces a "wet blanket" effect and it will fall out of its opening.

Heat strengthened laminated glass is stronger than annealed, but not as strong as tempered. It is often used where security is a concern. It has a larger break pattern than tempered, but because it holds its shape (unlike the "wet blanket" effect of tempered laminated glass) it remains in the opening and can withstand more force for a longer period of time.

Cooling the interior of a building as well as keeping out unwanted sound and pollution has sharply risen in the last few years. This is parricularly true in large cities where all forms of unwanted intrusions disrupt the privacy and solitude needed to work effectively. Althrote keeps out some of the unwanted disruptions, it also block all natural light and can conduct heat into the building, thus increasing the electrical costs with regards to light and air conditioning.
