There are a number of “smart” coatings that can be applied to glass. These include self-cleaning coatings based on titanium dioxide, and low-E coatings based on fluorine-doped tin oxide. Products are often more desirable with colour options such as Pilkington Activ BlueTM. There are currently no alternatives to body tinting glass to achieve colour, which is a time-consuming and expensive procedure. The work in this project details a number of coloured coatings via the AACVD or combustion processing of metal nitrate/urea precursors.
