GLASS PHOTOCATALYSIS

It is an innovative technology with practical applications such as window panes, mirrors, car windscreens, etc. Titanium dioxide coated glass has excellent photocatalysis activity thanks to the irradiation of light for long periods of time.

TiO2 has an extremely strong oxidation capacity and is therefore capable of decomposing various types of organic matter in contact with it. Different organic pollutants such as NOx, SOx, CO and VCO’s, through photocatalysis, are transformed into much less aggressive or inert compounds. These results support a greater durability and transparency of the coated substrates.

Additionally, the use of photocatalysis with TiO2 generates in parallel a hydrophilic behavior of the surface of these materials, therefore, the contaminants adhered to the surface and other substances can be easily removed from the surface with water.

Glass substrates coated with TiO2 photocatalysis, under ultraviolet light, however weak in living environments, have a self-cleaning capacity related to the degradation capacity and even mineralization of organic compounds present in the air – such as ammonia, acetaldehyde, hydrogen sulfide and the source of bad odor, such as methyl mercaptan –

The photocatalytic action generated by our product une2 , mainly due to the liquid titanium dioxide (SOL) dispersed with a size medium of the crystals of nanoparticles of 5 ~ 8 nm stands out for its good activity and durability, for exteriors of glass of buildings (without abrasion) the life of the coating can be up to more than 7 years.

For interior glass (with normal soft abrasion), the coating life should be around 5 years. For commercial glass (frequently abrasion and cleaning, life is shorter around 2 years or less.

Approximately 1 liter of une2 product can cover 120 ~ 160 square meters depending on the coating technique.

Another of the main actions is the antibacterial function, that is, the bacteria that come in contact with the surface covered with Tio2 will be sterilized by the damages to the cell membranes.

To finish mentioning that it will improve the appearance of the coating, the adhesiveness, resistance to the climate, to the heat, the alkalis, the organic chemical products, the humidity, the insulating property and the resistance to the abrasion forming a coating of greater hardness.
