A self-cleaning glass is a glass that, due to a special microscopic coating, has the ability to degrade organic dirt and therefore remain clean longer than ordinary glass. This type of glass also has hydrophilic properties that cause the water falling on the glass plate to be distributed evenly over the glass, washing the glass, instead of leaving it dirty like ordinary glass. Indeed, instead of falling in drops on the glass, the water gradually forms a film which, due to gravity, ends up slipping along the glass by washing it. Thus, all the water flows, there is no evaporation and therefore no traces. This new type of glass reduces cleaning costs, but also environmental impacts because it requires less use of detergents.

Self-cleaning glass is a glass on which a special photocatalytic layer is applied during its manufacture on its external face, this solution is applied to all our types of glass. The self-cleaning function of the glasses of the same name is based on the combination of two properties of the microscopic layers deposited on glass: photocatalysis and super hydrophilicity. The self-cleaning glass and an outdoor glass. It is used in places where the environment is polluted, such as industrial, urban, airport areas, etc., in the following applications:
windows and bay windows
verandas and canopies

- Screen printing:
Screen-printed glass is glass in which one side is covered with unalterable decorative motifs.
These are made by depositing enamel on the glass by means of a screen printing process. The enamel is then vitrified during a heat treatment at more than 600 °C, which gives the finished product a high chemical and mechanical stability.
You can print an image, a drawing, a lettering, or your logo.
Unlike transparent glass, frosted glass is translucent and therefore allows light to pass through but prevents a clear view of what is happening on the other side. Frosted glass has a satin surface.
It gently filters light, blurs contours and suggests silhouettes in a variety of interior and exterior applications. A permanent source of inspiration for designers, matt glass is totally in line with the current trend of minimalism, simplicity and refined shapes. frosted glass offers a perfect balance between intimacy and luminosity.
Sandblasted glass has a satin finish, particularly elegant and aesthetic. By exploiting all the possibilities offered by sandblasting, it is possible to obtain glasses in total or partial sandblasting, for subtle and sometimes surprising texture and light effects. Custom sandblasted glass will meet all needs, including the most specific or original ones. In all cases, the finished product, whether plain, printed or coloured, is resistant, easy to maintain, and spreads light pleasantly, to preserve privacy or confidentiality.
- Anti-limestone treatment:
The Anti-limestone treatment is generally a very clear tempered glass, treated with an invisible anti-limestone layer, ideal for the creation of your custom shower enclosure (Italian shower, bathtub screen and small projection protections). It guarantees a preserved transparency day after day, the glass is protected from corrosion, it does not tarnish and keeps its beauty. A glass that is easier to clean because the water slides on the surface of the glass, which limits limescale deposits after drying. Residual traces are easily cleaned.
This finishing consists of making holes in the glass. Its purpose is to allow glass to be combined with other elements. With this technology, it is possible, for example, to attach hinges to a glass door or to integrate a lock or any other element that suits your needs.
