Our UGC® self-cleaning glass range is based on a 15nm thick thin-film coating of titanium dioxide. Other varieties of our product offer additional features like ultraviolet control and low-emissivity energy-saving glass.
Using a “photocatalytic” process, the coating on our UGC® Clear reacts with ultra-violet rays present in natural daylight to break down and disintegrate organic dirt.
The second stage occurs when rainwater hits the glass. UGC® Clear is “hydrophilic” which means that instead of forming droplets, the water spreads evenly over the surface and as it runs off takes the dirt with it.
Compared with conventional glass, the water also dries off very quickly without leaving unsightly drying spots.
