Billions of pounds are lost each year in lost productivity due to workplace acquired illnesses.

The Colds and Flu season alone can rapidly effect entire offices, departments and workplaces, drastically effecting the workflow and overall productivity. It makes perfect sense to safeguard your employees and customers and keep people healthy - it also helps promote a healthy bottom line.

Strong sunlight or ultraviolet light decomposes many organic materials in a slow, natural process where self cleaning surfaces can help. A photocatalyst speeds up this process and, like other types of catalysts, stimulate a chemical transformation without being consumed or worn-out by the reaction.

Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide is energized by light and accelerates the decomposition of organic particulates and airborne pollutants such as nitrous oxide (NOx).
When used on a
Self Cleaning treated structure, photocatalysts decompose organic materials that foul the surface. The organic compounds affected by photocatalysts include dirt (soot, grime, oil and particulates(PM) biological organisms (algae, allergens bacteria and mould), air-borne pollutants (VOCs including formaldehyde, tobacco smoke; and the nitrous oxides (NOx) and sulphuric oxides (SOx) that are significant factors in smog), and even the chemicals that cause odours. The catalysed compounds break down into oxygen, carbon dioxide, water, sulphate, nitrate and other molecules that are either beneficial to or at have a relatively benign impact on the environment. Most inorganic pollutants and stains, including rust, are not catalysed.

The products of the catalytic reaction are easy to remove from the treated surface because the surface becomes hydrophilic - term that means “water loving.” A hydrophilic surface prevents moisture from forming beads of water that may cause stains by attracting and holding dirt and then streaking the surface. Instead, moisture forms a thin film across a surface that interferes with the adhesion of dirt. Plain rinsing can then easily remove the dirt.

You can even make the air in your home or office easier to breath with just a simple photocatalytically-treated bouquet of flowers.
