A transparent waterborne Photocatalytic coating, capable of providing protection and self cleaning capabilities for walls, facades, monuments and painted surfaces.
PhotoActiva TB coated surfaces with self-cleaning capabilities requires minimum maintenance. This indirectly saves a substantial amount of resources on building maintenance.
The product is non-flammable, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
The product will be effective when under visible light condition (blue light spectrum)
Photocatalysis is a technology that works under the same principles as photovoltaic panels (solar cells). It uses light energy, to destroy elements that affect human health and the environment.
ActivaTB coated surface uses photocatalysis "light energy" to continuously produce active radicals on the surfaces: ActivaTB coated surface uses photocatalysis (* light energy) to continuously produce active radicals on the surfaces:
• Hydroxyl Radical: often referred to as the "detergent" of the atmosphere because it reacts with many pollutants, decomposing them through "cracking," often acting as the first step to their removal. It also has an important role in eliminating some greenhouse gases.
• Peroxyl Radicals: as active as the ozone, they are the precursors of hydrogen peroxide, one of the most important disinfectants, capable of destroying bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
The self-cleaning coating when applied on the exterior of a bungalow house, air purification of the surrounding air is the same effect of 15-20 growing trees. Maintenance can be reduced by 75% to 90%.
The benefits of PhotoActiva TB coating includes:
- Reduction of surface maintenance
- Air purifying
- Long Lasting
- Healthier environment
*Photocatalysis requires light energy to be activated. Natural light, fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs are, in that order, suitable to activate the surfaces. Black light or LED lights emitting in the range of visible violet (380 nm) is optimal for a perfect activation.
