Soudal, the Belgian manufacturer of specialty chemicals for the construction industry has been at the forefront of sealant and PU foam technology for several decades. With the arrival of self-cleaning glass, yet another challenge was tackled in the Soudal laboratories, introducing SMX 506 The first recommended sealant to be used with Pilkington (ActivTM) & Saint-Gobain Glass (SGG Bioclean), this product is a true breakthrough in the industry! Self-cleaning glass types have a dual functionality which uses the forces of nature to help keep the glass free from dirt, thus dramatically reducing cleaning efforts and cost. The functionality is based on two principles;
A photoactive surface coating reduces the adherence of dirt and dust particles
The hydrophilic coated surface lets raindrops form a sheet of water which flushes away dirt from the window surface.
The problem has always been that, although the glass remains clean, any sealant used around the edges wouldn't, creating a picture frame of dirty sealant. Now with SMX 506 and its self-cleaning properties, this can all be avoided, giving you spotless windows with minimal effort. So grab yours now!
