How self clean glass works
The coating is activated by UV light, after you install the glass the coating needs 5 to 7 days exposure to daylight to activate fully. After this period it continues to work even on cloudy days and night. Organic dirt is also broken down, and then the rain washes away the dirt. There are certain circumstances where a little bit of maintenance may be necessary. Were the deposits of organic dirt are heavy that not even the coating self cleaning glass can break, you will need to clean the glass with warm soapy water and soft cloth. Then again after few days the self cleaning process will be re-activated.
The self cleaning coating will not flake off or discolour. But it can be damaged by using pointed objects or abrasive cleaners. It is important to carefully remove paint from the coating using soft cloth and methylated spirits and never use harsh glass cleanings products, steel wool, blades or anything else that would scratch the glass.
