Precedence® Replacement Window Options & Accessories
Optional Neat Coating
All Precedence replacement windows are available with optional Neat coating, a special exterior surface coating from Cardinal Industries that renders windows virtually self-cleaning. Silicon dioxide fills in the microscopic pits found on all glass surfaces. This super-smooth window enables water to sheet rather than bead, leaving the surface almost spotless as it dries. A titanium dioxide coating reacts with UV light (even on cloudy days) to dissolve carbon-based and organic material. When water hits the window, the sheeting action simply washes away the decomposed dirt.
|Ordinary Glass (Hydrophobic)
Water beads higher on rough surface of ordinary glass, causing more spots and greater cleaning needs.
|Neat Lo-E Glass (Superhydrophilic)
The smooth surface disperses water evenly and dirt more quickly, reducing water spots.
