NSG Group introduces Pilkington SaniTise™ to help make a healthier, cleaner, safer world

27 Oct 2020

Tokyo - NSG Group recognizes the world has changed and that health and safety are at the forefront of everyone's mind. In response to these challenges, NSG Group is excited to announce the launch of Pilkington SaniTise™.

Pilkington SaniTise™ is a transparent coated glass aimed at creating a healthier, cleaner, safer world. Naturally activated through UV exposure from daylight, the pyrolytic coating provides antimicrobial properties and activity against enveloped viruses on the glass surface.

When Pilkington SaniTise™ is exposed to natural UV, its antimicrobial activity is significantly increased compared to using uncoated glass.

Verified through independent third-party testing, Pilkington SaniTise™ provides extra protection for any shared/high-touch surfaces that has access to natural UV exposure, such as:

  • Building façades as the IGU's interior surface on any exterior wall system in applications such as schools, hospitals, restaurants, or hotels.
  • Shared transportation such as school buses, trains, shuttle buses, or marine glazings.
  • Exterior shared spaces such as bus stop shelters and zoo enclosures.

Pilkington SaniTise™ is immediately available on multiple tints, and thicknesses. The highly durable pyrolytic on-line coating lasts the lifetime of the glass and can be toughened, laminated, bent or processed into insulated glass units using standard techniques. Pilkington SaniTise™ is also compatible with commercial grade cleaning products and is highly resistant to corrosion, mechanical and chemical damage.

With the introduction of Pilkington SaniTise™, NSG Group is committed to creating a healthier, cleaner, safer world.
