For facades and windows, we can provide BIOCLEAN self-cleaning glass that is manufactured by depositing a transparent layer of photocatalytic and hydrophilic mineral material onto clear glass. The coating, which is integrated into the glass itself, ensures a high level of durability and requires low maintenance and less usage of cleaning chemicals. This is part of the Saint-Gobain Glass pledge to promote eco-friendly building materials.
