APCO windows with SunClean Self-Cleaning glass by PPG are designed to make your life easier.
APCO’s windows with SunClean Self-Cleaning glass break down and loosen dirt so that water can easily rinse it away with the patented SunClean sheeting action with minimal spotting. The self-cleaning property of SunClean glass is made possible by a durable and transparent coating of titanium dioxide. Weather-Rated ‘SunClean’ windows can be installed by APCO or purchased as material only. Visit our Free Estimates page to request more info about these great new windows.
The self-cleaning property of SunClean glass is made possible by a durable, transparent coating of titanium dioxide (TiO2) applied during the manufacturing process. The application process, patented by PPG, makes the coating an integral part of the outer glass surface, providing homeowners with a durable, long-lasting product. In a photocatalytic process, ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun energizes the SunClean self-cleaning glass to help slowly break down and loosen organic dirt. (See the photo to the left.) Since UV light is abundant even on cloudy days or in shaded areas, this process works nonstop throughout the day. The coating also has a hydrophilic property that makes water droplets spread out, or sheet, across the surface of the glass. When rain or a light spray of water hits the window, the water carries away the loosened dirt. (Click here to see a diagram of this process.) This sheeting action also helps the window dry quickly with minimal spotting or streaking.
