Antibacterial coated glass for public spaces and hospitals
Pilkington SaniTise® is a glass product with a transparent photocatalytic coating that provides antimicrobial properties and activity against enveloped viruses when exposed to UV. It is a pyrolytic coating with good scratch resistance and durability, and in most glass processing circumstances it can be treated the same as ordinary float glass. It is also available on a grey and green glass substrate, for the additional benefit of solar control. 

Pilkington SaniTise® achieves full activity upon exposure to UV light. It can be naturally activated through exposure to daylight, with the activation time being dependent upon glazing construction. Alternatively, it can be used indoors when it is irradiated with artificial UV light, for example at a wavelength of 254 nm. Either UVA or UVC radiation can be used to activate the coating.

Pilkington SaniTise® can be single glazed or incorporated into an insulating glass unit (IGU) with the antimicrobial coating on either of the external surfaces. In a double glazed unit (DGU) typically the coating will be positioned on surface #4, the inner most surface of the inner pane of glass.
