Self-cleaning from Borosilicate Glass Waste
In this rapid industrial and economic progress, the need for high-rise buildings is increasing. The emergence of these tall buildings in order to meet the needs of office centers, government centers and sports venues and places of residence will create new problems. The most important problem arises is that building maintenance and cleaning costs must increase as a result of strong urbanization. Ideally high buildings are cleaned cleaned within 3-5 years. Even though once a building cleaning project is able to spend around IDR. 160,000,000. This fantastic price is often overlooked and abandoned by the owner and developer of the building. If the building is not regularly maintained and cleaned it can cause cracks and defects in the building.
Whereas this borsilicate glass through a systematic method can be made to create a superhydrophobic layer in the existing material. The author’s hypothesis is that the existing superhydrophobic layer concept is capable of being created from borosilicate glass waste. So that it can be used to make a self-cleaning material that is cheap and effective for tall buildings. This research is using experimental method. Experiments were carried out to make material self-cleaning products and test the effectiveness of material self-cleaning products
