PHOTOCATALYSIS

REVOLUTION FOR HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENT

Photocatalysis is a natural phenome, in which a substance uses the light energy (natural or artificial) to eliminate the contaminating and damaging compounds.

In the presence of air and light, the oxidation process is activated that decomposes the organic substances organic and inorganic, contaminating that takes contact with the Photocatalytic surface.

Photocatalysis is efficient against the following toxic substances, among other:

  • Inorganic and organic substances
  • Thin particles (PM5, PM10,...)
  • Ethanol
  • Microbes and bacteria
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Benzene
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Formaldehyde
  • Etilbenzene
  • Aromatic policondensates
  • Acetaldehyde
  • Toluene
  • Sulphur oxide (SOx)
  • Methanol
  • Xylene

This contaminating and toxic substances (see image attached) change themselves, with the Photocatalytic process, in plaster (CaSO4), calcium nitrate (Ca(NO3)2) and limestone (CaCO3), completely innocuous for people health.

Thanks to these process, our products, applied building and housing outdoors and indoors, present the following PROPERTIES, in a PERMANENT WAY:

  • Elimination in the air of the toxic contaminating products produced by automobiles, factories, varnishes, glue, heating, etc.
  • Microorganism presence reduction (bacteria, fungi, etc.) when destroying the substances from which they are nourishing.
  • Dirtiness elimination in the surfaces that are maintaining much time clean, with no necessity of cleaning or repainting.
  • Odors elimination, that are produced by organic substances present in the air and that are in such this way eliminated.

ECOACTIVE PHOTOCATALYTIC SYSTEM ADVANTAGES

UNPOLLUTED AIR

Photocatalytic surfaces present spectacular results in reduction of the contaminating load in the building interior. In our housing and offices, besides from the pollutants coming from outdoors, caused by automobiles and industries, we have to add those ones produced in the same building, due to the construction materials (glue, varnish, solvents, etc.) or the ones produced due to our activity (combustion and boiling smokes, heating, maintenance, etc.).

Furthermore, the Phocatalytic surfaces in the housing exterior, they act as a cleaner shield to prevent the dirty air entrance indoors.


CLEAN SURFACES

The main reason of wall dirtiness in our houses, indoor and outdoor, is the continuously accumulation over the same contaminating particles and substances, the same our families and we are breathing very often. Just recently painted, a room presents shadows at the corner and at the windows, doors and picture and decorative elements edges. These are the zones where the air moves slowly and where dirtiness starts to accumulate. The same happens over radiators and air diffusers.

Cleaning problems are aesthetics and also hygiene as the products getting the surface dirty are nutrient for bacteria and fungi, and the repaint is an important cost in material and workmanship.

In the attached schema, the auto cleaning process of a Photocatalyic surface can be seen related to a normal wall. After being both stained by a coloring (Rodamine B), after only 60 exposure to light hours, the Photocatalytic surface recovers its original whiteness.

BACTERICIDE

The Photocatalytic surfaces prevent the microorganism growth and they do not let accumulation of substances that feed them. Therefore, they are very efficient in front of the aggression of bacteria, fungi and microorganism in general.

Results from the said action are attested by the numerous measurements performed in school, hospitals and alimentary

factories walls and due to the obtained results in specialized
laboratories.

HEALTHY ROOM WITHOUT ODORS

Traditional deodorant systems consist in dispersing perfumes in the air that hide the bad odor effect in our smell. Nevertheless, we continue breathing the pollutants, even without noticing its odor.

Photocatalytic surfaces do not emit any odor, but they destroy the damaging compounds that they produce. In our case, the bad odors absence indicates air pureness and cleaning entering in our lungs.

HEALTHY FAMILIES

It is well know that people living in urban ambient suffer more breathing affections and even its life expectancy is lower than the one of people living in clean air zones.

The Photocatalytic housing walls perform the same purifier function than forests and meadows. They use even the same energy source, Light.

The Ecoactive products represent an step ahead in health and environment technology:

Applied as painting:

  • Not only they are Clean Products, but they also clean the contaminated ambient.
  • Also they benefit the Environment, the bigger benefits are for families health that have it at home.
  • Is a saving money technology, The Photocatalytic surfaces remain clean thanks to its dirtiness destruction effect.
  • Its effect is permanent.

OUR ECOACTIVE PHOTOCATALYTIC PRODUCT RANGE

All our products are water based, and their fabulous performances allow us to have an innovative role in the ecological architecture sector, letting with these products not only protection but also actively environment improvement.

Our range is composed by many covering types, adapted to the families, communities and sectors professional needs that can be applied to any indoor or outdoor surface and with a wide color range, in order to allow the access of our technology to higher possible user number.

Its application, as well as its characteristics, makes our products an easy to apply solution, with an elasticity grade and optimal breathability but with added value of the photocatalytic properties of antipollution, auto cleaning and bactericide.

There is a primer range to ensure the perfect adherence in any kind of surface.

ECOACTIVES coverings are ready to be used. It can be applied with roller, brush or pistol in the following surfaces:

  • Buildings facades, balconies, tunnels, indoors and outdoors walls.
  • Concrete pre-fabricated.
  • Semi closed ambient finishes or covered with subterranean passages, galleries, porches...
  • Interior ambient finishes, such as kitchen, bathrooms, offices, stairs, restaurants, hospitals, gyms...

In interiors with little natural light it can be necessary to install an adequate light system.
