Glass surfaces that are exposed to the atmosphere degrade by two processes usually acting in combination with one another: weathering and particulate deposition. Both processes are influenced by the glass surface composition which may be quite different from the bulk composition. There are a variety of options available for cleaning. A self-cleaning surface is most desirable. Optimum cleaning choices as well as “self-cleaning” characteristics are also a function of glass composition.
