Video – What is a self-cleaning window?
Self-cleaning windows are covered with a thin layer of titanium dioxide, which is activated when hit by ultraviolet rays. This causes a series of chemical reactions that help remove dirt encrusted on the glass.
Here is a video that shows how self cleaning windows actually work.
First, organic dirt particles that are stuck on the windows are broken down into smaller pieces.
Then the rain water, which tends to cluster in large drops that drip and that leave traces drying, reacts differently with this thin layer. It spreads over the glass more evenly, and slips under organic debris that have been decomposed. Thus, rain water dislodges and carries in its wake all the dirt. It is a continuous process that always keeps your glass cleaner!
