PPG's $300 million R&D program

(about 2/3 down the column) SunClean windows "self clean" through technology in the glass that breaks down organic dirt and provides a sheathing action when it rains that flushes the surface clean. PPG didn't invent the nanotechnology behind the process but worked for six years at its glass technology center in Harmarville to develop it to the stage where it could be marketed commercially, LeBoeuf said. SunClean windows, introduced in early 2002, are now available nationwide at Home Depot, Sears and Lowe's stores, and through window distributors nationwide.
